Help Yourself to Health

Is your resolution to start healthier habits in 2012 beginning to falter? Inspiration and good advice are just a lunch hour away.

Registered dietitian Lisa Eberhart with University Dining will help you find healthy, convenient,  inexpensive options for eating and exercise, right on campus. Three programs just for faculty and staff are on the menu this spring.

If you’re trying to start afresh in 2012, Eberhart recommends small changes, whether it’s walking the stairs in your building a few times a day or taking a campus carryout container of healthy food home for supper.

“This is a healthy place to work,” Eberhart says. “We have access to a gym membership within walking distance of work and full salad bars with as many veggies as you want on both sides of campus.”

Here’s an overview of spring workshops to give you more ideas for healthier living.
