ASU Counseling Services hosted the Stress Less Fair on April 18 in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center.

The fair featured over 45 vendors who provided the ASU community with tips, tools and resources on how to cope with the inevitable stress in our lives.
Mark Rehm, director of counseling services, said he wanted people to have fun at the event. He searched for and invited vendors who were connected to health and wellness. 

“The Stress Less Fair gave me the opportunity to sign up for a workout class and some yoga, which I think is nice since I have been wanting to get more active in a healthy way,” senior Miguel Acevedo said.

During the event, attendees could receive services such as manicures, massages and makeovers.

“The opportunity to get a massage was awesome and relaxing,” junior Linda Abernathy said. “My friends convinced me to come to the event and I am glad I went.”

Attendees could also try the drink Zenify, which has stress-reducing antioxidants and increases serotonin and dopamine. 
Consultants from Rodan and Fields discussed the importance of dermatology methods and supplies.

Attendees had the opportunity to make hand scrubs using sugar and different natural oils. One of the oils contained lemon, which is sleep-inducing and stimulates circulation.

“I think it is great that ASU offered this event for students,” sophomore Zoё Bahl said. 
“The timing is great, considering finals are soon.”

Those in attendance could also enter a grand prize drawing for their chance to win a FitBit Charge 2, a $100 gift certificate to Peyton’s Bike Shop or a $40 in gift certificates to PV Deli by Chef Jason.

“The Stress Less Fair was a spectacular event,” freshman Mikaelyn Williams said. “There were so many activities for students to participate in to help relieve stress.”
