The purpose of this guide is to help you learn more about your physical vibrancy, and how you can make small choices in how you eat, move, and sleep in order to make a big change in how you feel and the energy you have in completing your academic and career goals.
Your physical wellbeing is less about how you look, and more about how you feel. We make seemingly small, but eventually significant, choices about our physical wellbeing every day, including the foods we eat (or don’t eat), the exercise we do (or don’t do), the sleep we get (or don’t get). The decisions we make each day about how we eat, move, and sleep, have sizeable impacts on our ability to get things done and perform up to our expectations. You don’t have to be a health guru to feel the benefits of these positive choices, and this guide will help you make small choices that will lead to big changes in the way you feel.
