Bring Wellness to Your Area

Bring wellness to your department with these presentations, screenings, and challenges!

Presentations

Intro to Wellness

This short 10-minute presentation is perfect for your next staff meeting! Review the wellness opportunities available and find out how to stay current on upcoming activities.

Beyond the Stress Ball

This powerful workshop offers practical tools for managing stress that go beyond traditional advice. You’ll learn how effective thinking, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques can lower your stress level and increase your quality of life.

Deskercise

Feeling tied to your desk lately? You’re not alone. Many American workers have a desk job and are sedentary six to eight hours a day. In this presentation you will learn fun and easy ways to build activity into your workday– often without even leaving your desk!

Grocery Store Tour

Bring the grocery store to your conference room! Learn what to look for from each aisle, compare products to become a food label pro, and get tips to find your “best fit” foods, those that taste good, are good for you, and that fit within your food budget.

To find out about additional presentations, please email the GatorCare Gainesville Wellness Coordinator.
