Behavioral Health Services staff have found a harmonious way to refresh during lunch. A group of employees from different BHS programs have been meeting twice a week for ukulele jam sessions.
Rizza Rodriguez, an administrative analyst who plays with the group, is singing the praises of these informal get-togethers. Rodriguez said music has been shown to reduce stress, ease anxiety and improve memory. Plus, it is fun.
“Not only do we get to learn how to play the ukulele, we also get to take care of ourselves by introducing music in between work,” she said.
Watch them play a song or two.
