Spring Into Health Wellness Walk and Expo

Unfortunately, we have to cancel the Spring Into Health Wellness Expo for Spring 2020. We will reassess whether we can plan a campus walk depending on when we are able to get back on campus. But don't forget -  you can always take yourself on a little walk, as long as you follow social distancing guidelines!

Let's Stay Healthy

As we adjust to the new normal, you may be looking for at-home workouts. Here are some great FREE options!

  • LifeFitnessa variety of bodyweight  "Workouts of the Day" and stretching/relaxation sessions.
  • LesMills: 95 free workouts across 8 different categories.
  • Matrix: downloadable exercise short clips; provides information about proper form, positioning and purpose of each exercise.

And remember, being active is more important than ever. Exercise to stimulate your immune system, enhance your mood, give you a sense of accomplishment, decrease your stress levels, and keep you strong and fit. 

This can be a difficult time for all of us. But we can get through this together. Health advocates recommend the following for optimal mental and physical health.

  • Maintain a healthy diet and eat regularly (planned snacks are fine, but don't overdo it!)
  • Set up a schedule for yourself and aim to accomplish a couple of goals each day
  • Get enough sleep (it's tempting to fall asleep late in front of the TV, but try to maintain your regular sleep schedule)
  • Exercise!! This doesn't have to be hardcore; just be active:
    • stretch several times each day,
    • use  your own bodyweight or books/household objects for strength training
    • go for a walk or jog** using social distancing guidelines
    • **Please Note: "Illinois Shelter In Place Order" includes the ability to engage in outdoor activity including walking, hiking, running or biking and going to public parks and open outdoor recreation
