Stress Management

Our Purpose. Your Journey.

Well-U offers a variety of programs and activities to U of R employees to assist in reducing your day-to-day stress, whether it be work-related or not. If there is a program that you would like to attend that is not on the enrollment page, we encourage you to contact us or your department’s Well-U Champion to find out if it is possible to bring the program to your department. Below are some of the stress-reducing programs that we offer to employees:

Massage Days

Well-U offers chair massage days at no-cost for departments throughout the year. Requests for 2020 are no longer being accepted. Be sure to check back in September 2020 to enter the massage day lottery for 2021.

Guided Relaxation

Press pause in the middle of a busy workday to take a mental break. For 30 minutes you will be guided through a mindful relaxation exercise full of deep breathing and tension relief.

Stress Reduction Program

Well-U provides no-cost stress-reduction lifestyle management programs to eligible individuals, helping to handle stressful events in ways that result in more balance, stability, and personal satisfaction. Learn to understand what causes your stress, make a plan to reduce these stressors, and identify different pathways to change those things that are more difficult to control.


Stress-Free Zones

Well-U provides no-cost stress free zones to departments. The stress free zone includes materials for adult coloring and stress ball making. You can pick this up for your department upon request. Complete the department request form.

Traveling Spa

New in 2019, the Traveling Spa is a complete kit that allows you to bring the relaxing elements of a spa directly to your workspace! The kit includes a back and neck massager, manicure set, aromatherapy lotion, flameless candles, assorted tea, and a sound machine. Click here for the flyer. Complete the department request form.
