Focus on well-being, connection and self-care at MHealthy’s virtual event

September 20, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Self-care, connection and staying well at work and home is the focus of MHealthy’s “Be Well Your Way” virtual event on Oct. 6 and 7. Registration is now open for more than a dozen sessions. This is a free event open to U-M faculty and staff.

It’s the second year MHealthy has hosted the virtual event, offered in place of its annual Be Well at the Big House event at Michigan Stadium. Last year, more than 1,000 employees participated.

More than a dozen sessions over two days

To give participants more flexibility, this year’s event takes place over two days.

Sessions are available from 7 – 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 6, and 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 3 – 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7. Most sessions are 40 minutes with topics covering:

  • Creating social connections
  • Ergonomic tips for work and home
  • Budget-friendly cooking
  • Financial well-being
  • Supporting your student/child’s well-being
  • Exploring DEI and wellness
  • Yoga and meditation
  • And more

Also, fewer registrations are needed to attend multiple sessions each day. This will give participants quick access to the sessions that interest them most.

“Our lives and workplace continue to shift and change, many times for reasons out of our control,” said Colleen Greene, senior wellness coordinator for MHealthy. “Many of us are looking for ways to manage, adapt and thrive. This event is an opportunity to get expert advice you can use right now.”
