It’s important to maintain a healthy balance between work and personal life as we spring into the fall semester.

Many Lobos might feel overwhelmed at home and in the workplace, especially after the events of the last year and a half. UNM encourages employees to maintain healthy habits, whether they’re continuing to work from home or are returning to campus.

“Integrating healthy habits into your life can make a significant difference in relieving stress and improving personal well-being, both at work and at home,” said Tracey Briggs, supervisor of UNM Employee Wellness. “We want the Lobo community to know about the many programs offered by our team of Health Education Consultants, designed to help our UNM community enjoy a happier and healthier life.”
