The Wellness Initiative was created in 2008 to support the health and well-being of each of our faculty, staff, and students. The Initiative focuses on providing programs, services, and information that support physical, mental, and emotional wellness for individuals, one-on-one relationships, and groups.
There are many ways to get involved with the Wellness Initiative at UMBC. We have compiled a list that is available on our Wellness Initiative myUMBC Group. Once you join, you’ll see the link on the homepage under ‘Documents.’
Please also visit our Wellness Initiative website for additional wellness resources, information, and support!
New Year’s Reflection
A wonderful New Year’s practice is to reflect back on the past year…. and then look forward to the year ahead. ‘Effective Questions’ can generate powerful energy to create what we want in our lives.
Terri Werner, Director of Training and Organization Development shares some of her favorite Effective Questions for transitioning from one year to the next. She encourages you to keep them handy, and answer them frequently – all year long! And share them with your colleagues, family and friends.
Check out the Winter ‘Tips and Articles’ page of our Wellness Initiative website for additional tips and resources for this season. We have provided information on winter wellness, seasonal foods and recipes, winter fitness, and energy-saving tips. The UMBC Wellness Initiative website is filled with resources, tips, music, and inspiration.
As we move into the new season, the cool, crisp autumn air makes outdoor exercise pleasant and invigorating. For your convenience, there are printable walking and jogging maps for the UMBC campus available on our website.
