Eno Student LoungeRecently we got our nerd on and dove into hammockers cognitive performances with Lyon College. Building on last year’s pilot hammock study where members of Lyon’s Psychology Department surveyed 80 Lyon students to determine their hammocks and relaxation attitude. the second part of the series examined how hammocks fared when compared with a traditional desk chair and an Adirondack chair. “From what we’ve seen and heard through our fans, hammocks are a great alternative to take a time-out between classes, or rest and recuperate after a hard day’s work. We wanted this next section of the study to prove that.” -Adam Cohen, ENO’s Head of Vendor Relation The second part involved randomly assigning approximately 75 participants to one of three conditions: a desk chair, Adirondack chair or ENO hammock. The participants rated their levels of specific emotions, state of relaxation and physical symptoms before sitting in their respective seat and performing a number of cognitive tasks. Following the completion of the tasks, participants again rated their emotions, relaxation and physical symptoms. The results, although not demonstrating a difference in cognitive tasks, did show that there were significant differences between the amount of change in some emotions, relaxation and physical symptoms...
“We are all together in the process of writing a new chapter in the long history of the art of equilibrium.” Balance is a lesson we all must learn in life. Some of us have a better grasp on it than others. Slacklining is a physical manifestation of trying to attain this virtue. Who knew that harmony could come from tension? Literally. Although the exact origins of slacklining are unknown, it is thought to have grown from tight rope or high wire walking (which has been around for pretty much forever.) However, the fuzzy beginning does take place in Olympia, Washington at the Evergreen College. It starts out with a pair avid of rock climbers who attended the school. First, they began stringing up chains and cables between trees, soon attracting crowds on campus to watch and cheer them on. As they practiced edging across the lines testing their balance, they soon improved upon their method by switching to 1” flat webbing. Slacklining as we know it was born. With its roots in college, the West Coast, and the rock climbing community slacklining has spread across the the U.S. and its borders. Still being a popular pastime on school campuses...
  This will be the last homework free weekend for many college goers around the country. Holiday break is officially over and starting Monday, students everywhere will get a fresh start with a new semester. I’m sure you all totally got this and you’ll be returning to classes in style with your new kicks, ready to start essay assignments the day they are assigned. However I have a few pieces of unsolicited advice to share with you. Eye Contact This is a trick I personally developed, less like a trick more like good manners–but check it out. So at the end of class, like the last few minutes, when your professor is trying to squeeze the few details about the latest homework assignment in, just sit quietly, make eye contact, and listen. You will notice that you are one of the few people doing so. Most students during the last three minutes of class are packing their books, checking the time, and texting who they will meet after class. Your professor has a bird’s eye view from the front. If you’re patiently paying attention in a sea of shuffling millennials, you will be noticed as a stand up person. Visit...
Enjoying the outdoors as a student can be difficult, especially as the workload of school bears down upon you. I always try to get outside as much as I can, and during school especially because it gets hard being inside all day.
According to a recent article by The College Store Magazine, more than 30% of fall 2012’s freshmen said that they felt stressed and overwhelmed during their last year of high school. Researchers say that this stress could very likely continue through their first year of college. So what’s a hard-working student to do?! Relaxation products are a great tool that students can use to unwind whenever they have a break between classes and during a late night study session. And one of the best relaxation products is a hammock!   Here are 6 ways that hammocks can help as student de-stressor: 1. Gets You Outside.  When you think hammock, you automatically think of being outside, under a tree, feeling the breeze float over you. Hammocking is a great way to get you outside, which is beneficial in many ways. For one, open spaces allow you more opportunities to boost your health. Going outside is exercise in itself, and exercise is a natural mood enhancer.
