Be(e) A Wellness Warrior!

A broad definition of warrior is ‘a person engaged in some struggle or conflict’ and in today’s society we are always struggling to find balance. To have a healthy body and a healthy mind while getting on in a fast paced-technologically driven world where many of us face days of prolonged sitting for work.

This year, racers will do their best to become U of L Wellness Warriors- engaged in a struggle to improve their health and motivate their coworkers to do the same. Each week, you will be given inspiration and challenges related to a different type of warrior.

Read all about each different warrior that will inspire you throughout the challenge!

The Be(e) Amazing Race also known as Heart Smart is an initiative to encourage wellness and increased physical activity among staff and faculty at the University of Lethbridge. You can count the steps from your car in the parking lot to your office, and/or your daily run. The Physical Activity Guidelines indicate that adults should accumulate at least 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous aerobic physical activity per week in bouts of 10 minutes or more (including brisk walking!) So let’s get moving!

Earn 10,000 bonus points this year by telling us how YOU Stay Well at the U of L. Submit a photo of something you do to maintain your physical and/or mental well-being to Wellness@uleth.ca. Please note your photo and info will be displayed on the Wellness website and/or Social Media.
