Not sure what to do?

Or why do it?

You have plenty of options and healthful reasons

Your health comes first 

Physical activity reduces your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, elevated blood pressure, osteoporosis, and helps control your weight

The options are plentiful 

  • You don't have to go on an extreme training regime to get those stress-relieving benefits
  • Choose from various exercises and choose a comfortable level to engage in physical activity such as light jogging, yoga, strength training, hiking, and even walking. 

The choice is yours! 

Alleviate stress and anxiety = better grades!

  • Researchers at Michigan State University found a link between exercise and increased GPA's in college students [2]
  • Exercise combats prolonged periods of stress that cause negative effects on the body and mind - physical activity assists with sleep-wake cycles, which ultimately eases anxiety, and can reduce the risk of larger health problems in the long run [1]

Check out for current guidelines on physical activity and the CDC for more information.
