Adele is not the only one “to turn up out of the blue uninvited.” She has nothing on those extra pounds some may accumulate, after consuming large portioned holiday meals and mom’s home cooked dinners, over winter break. It’s as if us students go home and devour all the food humanly possible, because we won’t be getting that kind of food for another three months. Okay, so maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but how can you incorporate quick healthy habits into your hectic schedules this semester? Shannon Simmons, the assistant professor of human performance, suggests four simple and short exercises you can add into your schedule:
- Everyday do as many sets of 10 pushups and sit-ups your body will allow.
- While watching television do squats, lunges, push-ups, or jumping jacks during each commercial.
- Use the warrior drive hill to your advantage, by sprinting or speed walking up and down it.
- Walk the longer route back to your dorm.
