Dear Colleagues:

Today marks the start of Canada's Healthy Workplace Month. This year's theme is Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, Healthy Work...A Positive Workplace Works!  As many of you know, workplace wellness is an important priority at UHN, and our Wellness team is continually looking for new ways to help staff get involved in wellness initiatives. Healthy Workplace Month is an opportunity to pause and reflect on these things.

Hospitals are busy places. We all have to manage high workloads and competing demands on our time. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance in such a situation is difficult, but becomes even more important in order to help keep those very stress levels down and the resulting negative effects of over-work and high stress. I encourage you to take some time to reflect on your individual health and what you can do to participate in stress-reducing activities like exercise, yoga and meditation.

In addition to on-going programs, Wellness has organized a few activities to help get you moving and focused on your health for Health Workplace Month. The full details are available in this week's UHNews and on the Intranet.

Thank you,
