Simply use the credentials set up during your initial meQuilibrium enrollment and you’re in! The meQ app is frand available for iPhone and Android devices.
  3. Attend a Calm Cast, “A Special Self-Care Action Plan” (Counts towards the incentive): Most of us spend our days bouncing from obligation to obligation —work, family commitments, meetings, you name it —without taking time for ourselves. During the holidays, with schedules bursting at the seams, we tend to fall even lower on our own priority list. Self-care might not always be easy, but it holds great value. By taking care of yourself in the short-term, you’re primed to thrive in the long-term. So, with the new year quickly approaching, let’s resolve to prioritize our own wellbeing. In this Calm-Cast, meQ Director of Content Alanna Finckle will show you how. Date: Thursday, December 13 Time: 12 pm Location: Library Lecture Room
