As schools have moved many resources online, UW-Superior's Pruitt Center for Mindfulness and Well-Being is continuing its programs with online opportunities of its own to help during this time. 

When the pandemic began shutting everything down, staff there wanted to continue to offer important help for students, staff, and even the community while they're staying home.  

The resources have adapted to the online format and are helping everyone adjust. 

"We actually offer three mindfulness opportunities a day for them to be able to check in," Randy Barker, the Interim Director for Health, Counseling and Well-Being, said.  "Just take those ten, fifteen minutes, twenty minutes, to just really reset, rebalance, and ground themselves."

The resources also include yoga from Runa Yoga and 'Mindful Mondays.'

Some students and staff continue to use an application they were using before the pandemic called Levelhead.  The program manager, Lori Tuominen, said that's helped them stay on track. 

"We have seen and heard from the professors and the students that it's actually been really helpful to have that particular tool to be able to help them make this transition," Tuominen said. 

The resources can be found at UW-Superior's Virtual Hive website.
