Section Information for Spring 2016

This experiential learning course will teach students how to optimize their lifestyle. The 5-day course is held in a "day retreat style" in January, before the launch of the regular semester, to encourage students to start their new year in a more strategic, health-focused, self-actualized way. Students will learn how to apply the latest research in public health, health promotion, wellness coaching and well-being science in order to improve (1) their health, through healthy behavior adoption); (2) their wellness, through strategic stress management and lifestyle practices; and (3) their well-being, through exercises designed to enhance both the experience and the evaluation of their lives. Each day will include a gentle mind/body practice (yoga, meditation, or mindful movement); lecture on the day's topic; application exercises for the topic; peer-peer coaching and support.
