Eating Well and Moving Your Body are both parts of the base of the IC Resilience Pyramid. These two blocks work very closely together and can often greatly impact each other. 

Eat Well

How, what, when, and why you eat affects not only your academic performance in college, but virtually every aspect of your health and wellbeing.

If you're having trouble adjusting to on campus meals, meal planning, or eating regular meals because of your daily schedule, then consider confidential wellness coaching with one of our Nationally Board Certified Health & Wellness Coaches.

Move Your Body

Moving your body in a way that you enjoy and gets you energized is an important aspect of your overall wellness. Exercise helps us sleep better, make healthier choices around eating, and can help relieve stress.
