Being well

The USPS Wellness team will offer two webinars this week that are designed to help Postal Service employees deal with their mental and physical health during the coronavirus pandemic.

The first session, “Emotional and Mental Well-Being During COVID-19,” will be held Tuesday, May 12, from noon-1 p.m. Eastern time.

The webinar will explore how the need for social distancing can affect our emotional and mental health. The session will also offer new ways to connect with friends and family as well as ways to cope with the stress of the pandemic.

Participants must register on the “Emotional and Mental Well-Being During COVID-19” website.

The second session, “Managing Weight Through Wellness,” will be held Wednesday, May 13, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. Eastern time.

This fun, informative presentation will be led by Christine Cintron, a certified holistic nutritionist, and will feature helpful tips.

Participants must register on the “Managing Weight Through Wellness” website.

After employees register for one or both webinars, they will receive participation instructions by email. Following each presentation, all registered participants will receive an emailed copy of the presentation.

Participation in both webinars is voluntary. Non-exempt employees can only participate in the webinars while off the clock or during authorized breaks.

Both webinars will be presented by GEHA, a not-for-profit provider of medical and dental plans for federal employees.
