Help Yourself and Your Office be Healthy!

  • Healthy Departments: Use the healthy department toolkit for ways to help yourself and your department stay healthy in 2019. And, check out our latest bulletin board posts; you could even use these to create a bulletin board in your department (we update our posts every month)!
  • Take Energy Breaks: Adding more movement in your day and staying energized is important so don't forget to take an energy break a few times each day! Energy breaks are short 2-5 minute breaks, such as a stretch, a stair climb, a mindful minute or a quick walk. They can help you replenish your energy, feel less stressed and fuel productivity.
