Ithaca College's campus houses many natural areas to explore and relax. Check out each location below.
Practices are small activities you can do outside to center yourself, shake some stress off, and spend some time in a green space. The word practice itself has two definitions: the use of a belief or method and the habitual or expected process of doing something. These outdoor practices are designed to guide you through different methods of relaxation in hopes that using the outdoors as a place to relieve stress will become a habit.
Our practices are short tasks for you to do outside that will reduce stress and leave you feeling restored. They include writing prompts, drawing prompts, and meditation ideas.
