May is Employee Health and Fitness Month!

This week's VCU Human Resources event is Chair Yoga. This will be held on Tuesday, May 16th from 12-1pm at the Cary St Gym. Hope to see you there! Register here.

Stressed out about all of the things you have to do? Worried about upcoming deadlines or future events? These thoughts can be counter-productive to our minds. Instead of worrying or stressing out and when you do, take a mindful moment! Stop, breath and focus on the present moment or task at hand.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is a practice of being focused and aware of, living and staying in the present moment.

Mindfulness can be practiced anywhere, anytime. It also has tremendous benefits!
