Wellness Tips

As we prepare to return to campus it is recommended we review and implement some basic wellness tips. Focusing on the wellness dimensions of exercise, sleep and nutrition becomes extremely important to strengthen our body’s ability to fight infection. Our immune system is one of our greatest defenses at preventing disease. The following tips are of importance:

  • Establish a regular sleep pattern of at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night
  • Develop appropriate sleep hygiene habits
  • Follow a balanced, healthy meal plan
  • Limit extra refined sugars which may impair our body’s immune response
  • Establish an exercise routine that is right for you focusing on 30 min/day, 5x’s weekly
  • Exercising outside is also a benefit to boost your Vitamin D levels which in turn helps decrease your risk of disease
