The LifeFit Center is now proud to say that it is officially an Exercise is Medicine on Campus facility.
We at the LifeFit Center are making a commitment to uphold and promote these guiding principles of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIMC) Program.
• Exercise and physical activity are important to health and the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.
• More should be done in university and college settings to encourage students to establish lifelong exercise and physical activity habits that have the power to significantly improve the quality of students’ lives.
• Support the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM’s) efforts to bring a greater focus on exercise and physical activity in university and college settings.
Greetings LifeFit Members and LifeFit Staff and Interns,
The Holiday Season is upon us – our theme for December is Healthy Holidays! As you approach festivities with family and friends, focus your energy on ENJOYING yourself and your loved ones. You might not be able to keep all of your same exercise and nutrition routines, and this is OK. It is good for us to have a break in routine once in a while so that we can appreciate our routine when we return to it. Here are a few tips to help you ENJOY & stay healthy during the holidays:
1. Keep it in perspective: Set the intention to enjoy and celebrate the holidays with your loved ones. When stress or pressure starts to hit, take a deep breath and refocus. We suggest setting several goals for the holiday season. Some of those goals can be nutrition or movement goals. Other goals can be specifically about how or with whom you are going to enjoy the holidays. An example of a nutrition goal during the holidays might be to enjoy or savor one dessert item per festivity you attend. The intent of this type of goal is to facilitate enjoyment and encourage moderation – rather than making dessert items “off-limits”, you are limiting your consumption with the intent to enjoy (rather than feel guilty or overindulge).
