Thursday, Mar. 28, 2013

Did you know that there is a full week dedicated to workplace wellness? 

After all, nearly everything has a day or week dedicated to celebrating its very existence. If there is a national day for pancakes and margaritas, workplace wellness certainly deserves a full week in the celebration lineup.

So, mark the calendar for April 1 — that’s when the wellness week bandwagon rolls.

Initiated by the American Heart Association, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution that designates the first full week of April as “National Workplace Wellness Week.”

Starting April 1 and continuing throughout the week, Utah State University’s Employee Wellness Program will focus on some aspect of wellness. Activities will include free events such as a Yoga class, a Brown Bag and a running clinic, to name a few. There will also be a variety of resources available on the USU Wellness Program website, including healthy recipes, a yoga video and sample workouts that can be done at home.

More details on Workplace Wellness Week is available online or contact Dayna Barrett, USU wellness coordinator, at or call 435-797-8519.

Barrett invites everyone to join the USU Wellness Program celebrate Wellness in the Workplace during the first week of April.
