City of Saint Paul – Library Associate Riverview Library

Tell us about the pillar of wellbeing you are thriving in and what you are doing?

My pillars are physical and social. I am both a manager and player of my adult recreational soccer team!

I have cofacilitated an antiracist book club at the City of Saint Paul where we work on body practices, including breathing exercises. This has really helped me in my work at the library, to deescalate any incidents.

What do you aspire to improve in your wellbeing over the next year?

I need to exercise more, especially in the winter. I am looking for a gym to play basketball!

How has the Healthy Saint Paul program improved your quality of life, worklife balance, or job

The newsletters always share really helpful tips! I didn’t know about the new National Suicide Prevention Line dialing code until I saw it in the May newsletter.

Thank you for sharing, Isaac!
