­“I enjoyed being able to reflect on how much I'm moving my body throughout the day prior to hitting the gym,” said Assessment and Testing Specialist, Maggie Saye. “I became a lot more consistent in taking daily walks during the work day which in turn also greatly helps my mental health as well as my productivity while in office.” 

“This challenge motivated me to get back in the habit of walking throughout the day," said Jordan Mendoza, Senior Research Analyst in Institutional Effectiveness. “When working from home, it's so easy to do the dishes or start a load of laundry during breaks. This challenge gave me a reason to prioritize exercise over chores; so, thank you!”
