National Goof Off Day
March 22, 2021
National Goof Off Day on March 22nd each year gives everyone the opportunity to have a little extra fun. The day is also known as International Goof Off Day.
It is a day to relax, enjoy and goof off. Do something fun and leave the work until tomorrow. Everybody needs to take a break from time to time. It is often so easy to get so involved in the work and pressures in our lives. So stop, take a break, find something different!
Let any goofy idea pop into your head. Make paper airplanes from seed packets. Doodle pictures of poodles in puddles in Peru. Play a game of Jenga with randomly stacked spice jars. Or do the obvious and spend the day in your pajamas doing nothing.

Our emotional wellness manifests in our ability to meet the world with optimism, trust and a sturdy sense of self-esteem.
With more than 50,000 employees combined, the UF and UF Health community is practically a city unto itself! Find support, networking and like-minded people by perusing the resources found here.
Our spiritual life is an often-overlooked aspect of wellness, but our guiding beliefs, principles and values provide us with deeper meaning and purpose.
Interdependence with our surroundings and the natural world make the environment an important aspect of our overall well-being.
Adopting smart fiscal management practices and preparing for short- and long-term expenses can help ensure we are “fiscally fit.”

As lifetime learners, our intellect is fed by an openness to new ideas, our capacity to think and to question, and our willingness to master new skills.
Diversity & Inclusion Wellness
Diversity in the workplace is having a good representation of people with a variety of thoughts, skills, world views, and experiences; inclusion is making sure these people are appreciated for what they bring to the table and both foster enhanced employee well-being.
