Each quarter of 2017, the UF and UF Health Wellness Committee, along with GatorCare, focuses on a different wellness topic. This quarter focuses on wellness at work. Highlights include:
- Ways to energize your day:
- Bring wellness to your next staff meeting by requesting a 10-minute presentation that reviews wellness opportunities available to employees; email UFHR Health Promotion Specialist Kim Holton to schedule
- Request a meditative coloring kit for your department’s breakroom

Mindfulness and Staying in the “Green Zone” REGISTER NOW
Sabine Grunwald, Ph.D., UF Mindfulness Program Leader & Professor, Department of Soil and Water Sciences
Mindfulness is part of a modern, healthy way of living that is less stressful, more productive, and enhances our emotional balance and well-being. Our work performance and achievements depend on emotional balance by staying in the “green zone” instead of anxiety, fear, anger or other emotions pulling us out into the “red zone.” Learn about the benefits derived from mindfulness at work, in and outside the classroom, and your life as a whole.

Heidi Radunovich, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Extension Program Director for UF Engagement Human Development, Department of Family, Youth and Community Sciences
Learn healthy coping strategies to manage the stresses of life. Information about the physical impact of stress will be provided, and progressive muscle relaxation will be practiced during the session.
