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.
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).
