Are You Up for the Newest Challenge?

The Be Mindful, Be Resilient Challenge, a new 28-day program, is designed to teach mindful practices and techniques, which increases your overall resilience.

It is no secret that today’s modern and productivity-driven world leads us to wear many hats. We are family members, employees, volunteers, friends and more. Whatever hats we wear or roles we play, they usually give and take on our energy levels, creating undo stress on our daily lives. This can negatively impact physical and emotional health, and cause us to engage in unhealthy habits. Practicing mindfulness has become an integral strategy to practice good self-care, reduce stress levels and improve resilience.   

The program kicks off on Jan. 29 and is available to all full-time, benefits-eligible employees on all Kent State campuses. You do not have to be enrolled in one of the university-sponsored medical plans to participate.

Participants receive educational materials, weekly emails and unlimited telephonic health coaching. In addition, weekly random drawings for prizes will be provided by the Employee Wellness office to keep you motivated and support your wellness goals. Winners will be announced each week throughout the challenge. 

You must participate in all four weeks of this challenge to qualify for your Tier 2 Wellness Reward points if participating in the Wellness Your Way employee incentive program. This challenge is worth 20 Tier Two wellness reward points.

Register today to become more mindful and more resilient in 2018. Employees are encouraged to register before Jan. 24, 2018.
