December 2020
We are thankful, grateful, honored and committed!

The Be Well at Work – Wellness team would like to thank you for your commitment to our programs and services over the course of the year. Though no one could have predicted the ever-changing events during the past 8 months, we are grateful for your courage and resilience.

Whether you participated in the UC Virtual Walks and moved together in community and solidarity with our Black staff and faculty, joined a virtual Cook Well Berkeley class from Kim Guess’ kitchen, or had the pleasure of moving to all your favorite tunes during the Mid-Morning Refresh; we honor you for your fortitude and all that you’ve done to support your well-being throughout the year.

In the New Year, the Be Well at Work – Wellness team, in collaboration with campus partners, will continue to support you every step of the way and remain committed to your mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and occupational well-being. Be sure to check back in January for the new Faculty/Staff Workshops and Resources flyer.

We wish you all a safe and wonderful holiday season!
The UC Diabetes Prevention Program is a campus-based small-group, one year healthy lifestyle program that uses a scientifically based approach developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help you make important lifestyle changes. Trained lifestyle coaches lead one-hour sessions in which you’ll learn healthy habits that stick, while significantly reducing your chance of developing type 2 diabetes. This program begins January 2021.

If you think you could be at risk of prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, register to attend an information session or contact Cori Evans at corievans@berkeley.edu for more information.

Isolation and Social Connection

After this unprecedented year, this holiday season may look different than years past with limits on travel, large group dinners, and other annual traditions. However, we can find ways to get creative and socialize virtually or socially distanced, to be able to connect with loved ones and continue to feed our social wellness. Social connection is a vital aspect of our well-being and as humans, we thrive in a sense of community. While we may be more physically apart, we can use resources around us to still feel connected to one another.
