IT'S YOUR MOVE...

The MOVE IT 8-week online team challenge (March 24 - May 18) is well under way.  We are in week 4 and making great progress!  MOVE IT is a fun way for you to track your physical activity while working together as a team to create a healthier Dartmouth community.  The more steps you track, the more milestones you reach, and the more chances you have to win prizes throughout the challenge, including a t-shirt!  So grab your colleagues and/or your spouse and MOVE IT for better health, for your team, and for fun prizes!

Now that Spring is here, get outside and enjoy the nice weather - try a new route or sign up for an event!

Your Path to Well-being: March 2014

Welcome to Nutrition Month!

A healthy lifestyle includes getting the recommended amounts of physical activity, managing your stress, eating healthfully, and more! The MOVE IT team physical activity challenge (see here to learn more or click here to register) will help you become or stay active, while having fun with your colleagues! However, eating a diet filled with rich nutrients that nourish our body can help us be at our physical best.  March is National Nutrition Month and, thus, we want to provide you with information on how to create a diet that can help you stay on track with your health goals. We will help you recognize nutrient rich foods, how to choose, store, and prepare foods safely, learn about sugar in your foods and how it affects your body and brain, and understand how to manage dietary restrictions, including food allergies. Use the information listed below and on our facebook page to help you create a nutritious diet that will complement the activities you will be participating in for the MOVE IT challenge!
