Virtual Support

During this time of physical distancing, the Office of Well-being is providing virtual well-being programs and resources to help support you.

Programs

Your Daily 15 & Your Daily 30

Your Daily 15 are 15 minute virtual well-being breaks that are meant to be short and easily incorporated into your day. Your Daily 30 are 30 minute virtual well-being breaks for those looking for a longer break. We've partnered with Northwestern Recreation to provide movement breaks, Elizabeth Tuckwell for guided meditation and our University Wellness Champions for community building breaks.
