    • The benefits of mindfulness
    • Relaxation techniques

There is still time to submit your activities for Week 3 and qualify for the weekly drawing. As a reminder, each week participants must choose two activities from the scheduled events as well as perform some type of physical activity.  The physical activity may be walking, participating in a workout video, horseback riding, swimming, gardening, running, lifting weights or any other form of physical activity and will be confirmed via a selfie. For those that are on campus, we have a campus map that shows different paths and their distance that can be found under our Well Santa Fe team on Teams. Please remember, we recommend that you consult your physician or other health care professionals before engaging in or increasing any kind of exercise.

Once you have completed the scheduled events and your physical activity for the week, send your selfie and confirmation of the completed events by email to Human.Resources@sfcollege.edu. Employees who submit confirmation of their participation in two of the week’s events as well as their selfie, will be entered into that week’s drawing and the grand prize drawing (maximum five entries per employee).
