Healthy Body, Healthy Mind. 5 week program
Start the semester with a joint initiative between ANU Sport and the ANU Counselling Centre. The Healthy Body Healthy Mind Program will allow you to try different types of physical exercise, develop your knowledge of nutrition and an introduction to mindfulness. Research shows that the level of our physical activity can have a direct and very influential impact on our state of mind and how we handle our stresses. There is also strong evidence that practicing mindfulness improves both mental and physical health.
