Embrace a New Routine

With many of our regular routines being thrown out the window, we need to create a new game plan for our healthy habits. Build a new routine that includes physical fitness, healthy eating, and sleep!

Be intentional about what is going to replace your old exercise routines now that gyms are close and sports are cancelled. You don’t need to pack a lunch or go out for lunch, so create a game plan for healthy eating throughout your day. This is an opportunity to try something new.

Finally, catch up on sleep! Go to bed 1 hour earlier than your normal routine and do your best to turn off devices 30 minutes before bed.

Legislation introduced to provide economic impact payment for college students and adult dependents 

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind would like UW-Stout students to know that he and Rep. Jackie Walorski of Indiana have introduced legislation to ensure college students and adult dependents are eligible to receive federal funding in the form of direct payments.

“College students’ lives were particularly uprooted by this crisis, often losing not only their homes but in many cases jobs as well,” said Rep. Kind, “This legislation will fill in gaps in the CARES Act by expanding eligibility for economic impact payments and take an important step towards providing further relief.”

Details of the legislation are available here
