This seems so very basic and obvious: isn't the health of your mind intimately connected with the health of your body—and vice versa?
Yet how many other colleges care to make this connection, and actually try to do something about it, on behalf of their adult students?
At the Abbey, we obviously can't MAKE our adult students practice good eating and exercise habits. (Although we wish we could!)
But we believe we can at the very least provide some tips along the way to help you: deal with some of the inevitable stress of college life; eat smarter so you'll feel better and have more energy; find time to exercise even on your busiest of days; and more.
We offer these tips through our convenient ADP Wellness newsletter, available in both print and electronic form.
And here's just a taste of some of the advice you'll be periodically receiving from us. Advice that's tailored to a busy—even a hectic—lifestyle:
“Nutrition: Eat a diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and legumes. Avoid sugars, refined white flour, and processed foods as much as you can and limit your salt intake.”
“Exercise: Find a physical activity you actually enjoy and do it. Try parking your car further away and walking. Schedule time for exercise on your daily calendar. Even walking 10 minutes three times a day is better than no activity. You can do this!”
