What is Wellness?

 “Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”- The World Health Organization.

At the health and wellness center we focus on providing students and staff members events that help to promote wellness. We offer lectures of various wellness topics, sporting events, open gym, and fitness classes that students and staff can take advantage of.

 

Nutrition

Tips to Get Started:

 

Drink Water – Water has no added sugar or calories as other beverages do. Keep a water bottle with you throughout the day to remind you to drink water and use the water fountains for free refills. You can also add fruits, herbs or spices to add a little flavor.

Cook More Often at Home – It will help you to control what you put on your plate.

Eat Well When Eating Foods Away From Home – Baked, broiled or steamed choices are better than fried, breaded or cooked in butter. Check for nutrition facts on establishments or go online to check their facts before going out.

Be Active – Aim for at least 2 ½ hours of physical activity per week.
