On Sitting, Walking and Winter Wellness Days

January 29, 2018 - I think we can all relate to the need to slow down, at least every once in a while, and that taking steps, whether by sitting, walking or just taking a deep breath, can make a real difference in how we feel. Wellness Days at Columbia provide a jumpstart, with many paths for fun, relaxation and learning.
