Physical Wellbeing is usually the first thing we think of when we think about health.  Physical Wellbeing relates to the ability to understand what can make our body most efficient and effective, as well as the ability to recognize and respect our own limitations. A high degree of Physical wellbeing is achieved through the development of physical strength, flexibility, endurance, and optimal nutrition while utilizing safety precautions such as medical self-care and appropriate use of the medical system. The improvement of physical wellbeing can enhance the other wellbeing components.  Enhanced self-esteem, a sense of direction, and other psychological benefits are some gains from developing physical wellbeing.

Eat. Sleep. Move. What a simple way to think about taking care of our physical self! Think about what you put in your body, letting your body rest and regenerate, and finding fun and unique ways to keep your body active.

Physical Wellbeing Highlights
  • The EatWell program provides nutritional guidelines for meals, snacks and drinks and also helps you make healthy choices in campus dining centers.

  • Our Personal Safety & Self Defense Program talks about the ways to avoid potentially harmful situations and how to defend yourself if you are in a dangerous situation. Men’s and Women’s classes are available.

  • The Reflections Body Image Academy is a program for women to discuss how body image is related to our physical and emotional wellbeing and how we can create supportive networks for developing a healthy body image.
