Hush Room To Begin ‘Self Care Sundays’ Series

Feeling stressed from the first few weeks? Hungover? Just not quite at your best? Don’t fret– The Hush Room is hosting its first-ever Self Care Sunday event on from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. January 28 to help alleviate early semester anxiety.

The Hush Room is a family-friendly, “student and local musician run venue,” according to owner Maeve McCullough. It’s known for its musical performances, artist collaborations, and most recently, drag shows.

McCullough was compelled to initiate these Sunday morning hangouts because she remembered being stressed when she was a student.

“When I was a student I would become burnt out as the semester progressed and one of the ways I was able to combat fatigue was having a meal with my family or my friends on Sunday mornings,” she said.

In an effort to emulate this community support and provide a haven for stressed-out residents, McCullough has taken matters into her own hands and started this event series.

As stated on the Facebook event, participants can expect free coffee, hearty oatmeal, chill vibes, crafts, and hugs this Sunday. In addition, there will be (possibly grindcore) yoga and ‘zine making.

The event is free of charge; however, donations of $1 to $3 are suggested.  If you’re feeling extra generous, donate to McCullough’s patreon here to keep funding community events like these.
