    Massage Chairs/ Yoga/meditation

      Can the university offer massage chairs in a room on campus that can help students unwind to help with mental health and stress issues. and can the university offer a yoga class before lessons to help relax students and it will help improve brain activity. research shows that it is successful in other countries and is done every morning before a lesson students take 5 minutes out before start of the class to unwind and to help them focus, and this is done in class time which I think is a good idea with the on-going pandemic it will ease the stress levels of students. This will help with mental health. University academic staff to implement yoga/mediation at the start of class to help reduce stress level and help improve mental health. And if possible university to set aside some funding for a room with massage chairs on campus that students can use to relax and unwind whilst completing studies
