Staying Well at the U of L

See how the senior leaders Stay Well at the U of L!

We interviewed several senior leaders for their tips on fitting in physical activity, improving mental wellbeing, and managing workplace stress.

See what they had to say!

How do YOU Stay Well at the U of L?  Do you have an interest you enjoy outside of work, something that helps stretch and maintain your physical and/or mental well-being?

If so, we'd love to display it in our rotating 'Staying Well at the U of L' feature on our website.

Take a photo of your talent, interest or yourself in action. You could display a quilt, or some wood-turning, a woven scarf, or a jar of jam. Use the online form to share your story and photo and we will display on a rotating basis on our website and other U of L wellness publications (monthly wellness newsletter, Wellness Facebook, Twitter).
