A Week of Wellness

March 8, 2021
A long weekend is coming up and we hope you’re getting ready to do some things just for you. 

This week, UNC Human Resources is offering a Total Wellbeing Virtual Wellness Week, centered on the needs of faculty and staff but open to all people affiliated with UNC. From meditation to cooking demos to weights, there are lots of options to find connection with your mind, body and spirit. Several in-real-life activities are happening as well. Morrison Art studio is offering a paint supply giveaway, Campus Rec is offering a Swim Stroke Clinic and a zipline night this weekend, and they continue to offer — all by reservation.
