Wellness Challenges

Wellness Challenges utilize the power of friendly competition to spark new healthy habits. Challenge yourself or your co-workers to track their healthy eating, physical activity, hydration status, or more. New habits are formed, bragging rights gained, and healthy prizes won.

Join the wellness team in a variety of challenges throughout the year. View the HR Events calendar for more details.

November 2019: You Rock! Campus Gratitude Challenge

'Tis the season for giving thanks, but did you know taking time for gratitude is actually good for your health? Time and time again, expressing gratitude has been shown to assist individuals to relish the positives, build strong relationships, connect communities, increase happiness, and work through hard times.

What a great opportunity to practice gratitude at Miami through the month-long You Rock! Campus Gratitude Challenge. Your Benefits & Wellness team will kick-off the challenge during Well Wednesday (Nov 6th from 2-4pm @ Hanna House) and continue throughout November.

Come by the Employee Wellness Center @ Hanna House during the kick-off to paint a gratitude rock or select your own rock from nature and paint at home. Once your rock is complete, pass it on to a coworker who is deserving of some appreciation. Keep passing gratitude rocks around to spread thanks, and don’t forget to post them to social media (using #gratituderocks or tag MiamiOH_employee_wellness) to document the journey from desk to desk around campus!

Can’t make it to Hanna House on the 6th? No problem! Email healthandwellbeing@miamioh.edu to schedule a time during the month of November to paint your rock (while supplies last) and get involved!
