The next Wellness Wednesday, titled “Boost: Transform Your Energy,” will be held Aug. 1 at noon (HR Building, 903 West University Ave., Room 120) and will feature Morgan Papworth, wellness coordinator for GatorCare. Papworth will discuss how to recharge ourselves in a world that can feel distracting and overconnected. The presentation will outline an energy management solution, based on intentional work breaks, to transform the way you work and boost your energy levels all day long.
