Fast Facts – Exercise

By Tristan Dorn

Is your New Year’s resolution to get healthy and active? While your goal may be to hit the gym to burn calories, you can also use this time to release pent up emotions, including stress, anger, anxiety, or frustration. An article in CNN notes “higher-intensity exercise offering increased mood-enhancing benefits.” This has been backed by a study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders.

 If the cold weather has you wanting to stay indoors, stick to your goals by going to the Activity Center on campus. The gym is open every day and boasts plenty of weights and cardio equipment. If you are looking for a regular commitment, consider signing up for Group X classes to exercise in a group with an instructor.
