Fitting in Your Fitness: Flexing Our Time to Maximize Our Exercise
Presenter: Taylor Todd
We are busy. As students and professionals, our schedules may look like we have no time for physical activity. This session will explore new ways to fit in your fitness, how to take advantage of new habits to make the most of those moments in your day where you are most inactive, and tips and tricks on making the most in adding up those important minutes of activity each week while setting new goals for our fitness and wellness.
Hints for Hooking Up
Presenter: Kristen Natonie
Dating before a pandemic looked different, and now there is the added risk of COVID-19, but with safe practices, it is still possible to connect. In this session, you will learn ways to assess the risk and discuss boundaries. Also, learn tips to stay safer and know what resources are available to you.
Reframing Healthy Eating in 2021: An Overview of Intuitive Eating
Presenter: Megan Meyer
Historically, healthy eating has focused on messages about what and how much a person eats; however, this strategy has often overlooked the how of eating, which can lead to an unhealthy relationship with our meals and our bodies. Intuitive eating challenges traditional healthy eating advice and creates a more peaceful way of nourishing ourselves. This presentation dives into the research supporting intuitive eating and will provide attendees with an overview of the ten principles of becoming an intuitive eater.
Join NAU Campus Recreation group fitness instructors for a variety of optional brain break opportunities throughout the day.
