Let's practice all of the techniques we learned!

Many of us are working in awkward, cramped spaces within our household or working long shifts on-site. Juggling parental duties, lecturing, Zoom meetings, all whilst neglecting our own health, physical activity, and wellbeing. Campus Recreation and UCIEsports have partnered with UCI HR Wellness to support UCI employees by offering a new virtual seminar series that focuses on optimizing your personal health and wellness. This series will arm you with tips, tools and resources that you can implement into your daily routine to help increase your energy, efficiency, reduce the incidence of injury and make you feel great.

Seminars will be held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at noon, February through May 2021.
