RecWell Plans for Winter 2021
Winter 2021 Programming
We recognize the role that recreation and wellness programs play in promoting student well-being, inspiring a sense of community, and encouraging student development and learning. Beginning Fall 2020, we used risk assessment tools to ensure safe participation and will continue to do so in Winter 2021. Program offerings will be adjusted to minimize transmission or contraction of COVID-19 while still promoting student engagement and fun. Our plans include:
- Reducing risks for in-person programs and services, while continuing to provide a variety of virtual opportunities.
- Enhanced cleaning and social distancing measures.
- Additional education and training for staff and participants.
- Modified sport, fitness, and outdoor offerings based on national and state guidelines and recommendations.

Fitness & Wellness
JANUARY 1 - FEBRUARY 26
We challenge you to JUST KEEP MOVING. This challenge allows you to track mileage through running, walking, biking, swimming, rowing, taking a group exercise class, playing an Intramural Sports game, using the upper body ergometer, and other various activities. The leader board creates more motivation and features where you rank among all participants!
Are you up for the challenge?

REST. RELAX. REFRESH.
Sometimes it's good to take a break. Our lives can get so busy that it's easy to neglect our well-being. By pausing to reflect, we can take intentional steps to improve how we feel. We encourage you to rest, relax, and feel refreshed by Pressing Pause.
"We increasingly miss out on the important moments of our lives as we pass the hours with our noses buried in our devices." They said it so well. The National Day of Unplugging is March 5-6, 2021, so RecWell invites you to UNPLUG. What do we mean?!
- A good balance of time spent on and off technology is beneficial to both physical and mental health.
- “Unplugged” likely means something different for everyone, whether it’s not using your phone while you’re with others, avoiding email during dinner, or spending less time on social media.
- Exercise can improve sleep, decrease feelings of depression, help protect against feelings of anxiety, boost self-confidence, and improve focus and productivity.
