LITers love a good run/walk!

Please read ahead for some updates from your wellness committee. Check out our website to stay up-to-date on campus wellness activities and find resources.

  1. The Winship 5K is THIS SATURDAY October 13. LITS has a team named LITS: Unplugged and Still Running. Sign up to run or walk.
  2. Refresh from Stress is going on right now. It began October 1 and you can access the related Healthy Habits challenges on the Healthy Emory connect platform. This is one of the last chances to earn extra points for 2018 since the deadline to earn points is November 15.
  3. In the spirit of Refresh from Stress, the LITS Wellness Committee is hosting a stretch break provided by Blomeyer staff. This stretch break is for 30 minutes and you can learn proper form and get some movement into your day. The first of these stretch breaks will be in the Jones Room in the Woodruff Library on Tuesday, October 23 from 12:30-1:00. We’re planning to record via Zoom for those who are unable to make it. Additionally, we’re hoping to host stretch breaks in other buildings with LITS staff over the next few months. If you’d like the committee to help facilitate a stretch break at your building, please contact me.

    Finally, a dedicated and wonderful member of the LITS Wellness Committee, Maria Jenkins, wrote about her journey toward better health for this month’s blog post, which you can find and read here.

As always, please feel free to contact me with suggestions and feedback for the LITS Wellness Committee and let us know how to best serve you!
