Hey Faculty/Staff! Say Goodbye to Stress with this Challenge!

As the Holiday season approaches, stress, anxiety, and a great deal of pressure creep their way into our daily lives. Although the Holidays emphasize giving, we must remember to take time out of each day for ourselves. It is when we are calm and relaxed that we can truly appreciate everyone and everything around us.
Sign up for our next Faculty and Staff Challenge sponsored by the WELLU entitled, "There Is No Time Like the Pleasant."This individual, stress-focused challenge encourages you to set aside time for yourself every day to complete and track 7 possible relaxation activities. Stated simply, these activities include:
Stress Poster Cropped
  • Closing Your Eyes 
  • Practicing Deep Breathing
  • Exhaling with Gusto
  • Actively Seeking the Good Stuff
  • Laughing
  • Attaching a Positive Thought with a Negative Thought
  • Visualizing 
The challenge kicks off Monday, December 3rd, and it will run through Wednesday, January 2nd. Rewards for the most points received include... 
 $100 for 1st place, $50 for 2nd place, 
and $25 for 3rd place!
Keep in mind, participating in the WELLU Sponsored Challenge fulfills the requirement for a discounted health insurance premium in 2014! Don't wait, and get involved with the challenge today at Good luck!
