This past month, we focused on the art of pressing pause—pausing to check in, slow down, and take part in small practices that support our everyday emotional wellbeing. It's not too late to give it a try, download this Press Pause Calendar from Lyra, your Caregiver Assistance Program.

Quarterly Step Challenge: Connecting with our Community starts May 24th

As we continue to navigate new ways of working, and the changes in our broader communities, many of us are finding that our connections and social lives now look very different. Our social connections are just as critical to our well-being as eating well, exercise and sleep and improve our physical health and emotional well-being. Before you begin, watch this video. During this challenge, reflect on your daily connections.

Join the Healthy Habit Challenge: Make Time for Play

You may know that play is beneficial for a child's development, but play has multiple benefits for people of all ages. Play can help relieve stress, increase joy, increase our learning, and connect us with others both near and far. Play can also help keep us feeling younger and more energetic. Incorporating some play into work can also make work both more productive and more pleasurable.
