Regular physical activity is one of the best things you can do for your overall wellbeing. Being more active can help you:
Fitting regular exercise into your daily schedule may seem difficult at first, but in reality, it doesn't have to be done all at once. Ten minute intervals of moderate level activity is all you have to do at a time. Get a group of friends and take a brisk walk at lunch, meet a friend after work, one day a week, and walk together to catch up. Get a fitness buddy, activity is more fun with a friend, and you will be helping someone else feel better as well!
So, how much activity do you really need? That depends on your goals, current activity level, age, etc. A good guide to follow can be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website:
1. Exercise on campus. Recreation Services offers fac/staff-only fitness classes during the spring and fall semesters.
2. Find a new routine. Check out the fitness library in the wellness portal. You'll find new exercises and examples of how to execute them correctly.
3. Ask for a discount. TrotFitness offers a discount for current faculty and staff.
