What does health mean to you?: 
Health, to me, can be a number of different things: healthy physically, mentally, or emotionally. All of which are extremely important to anyone’s well-being. To be healthy means that you give your body what it needs to thrive. Our bodies and minds are fragile, so to me, you can achieve health by feeding yourself good food, filling your mind with positive thoughts, and/or exercising to sweat the toxins and stress away.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
I love walking. It clears my mind and I get to listen to great music and enjoy my free time. However when I get to go for a walk with a group of friends, it makes it that much better. Encouraging your friends to go outside and get some fresh air with you is a great way to make a healthy UNH. We are very lucky that we have access to a swimming pool, countless sports fields and beautiful woods to go to and get some exercise.
How do you stay fit?: 
I actually am kind of bias because I personally love exercising. I have been playing soccer since I was three and ever since then, I need to run in order to stay sane. I love to run outside, or on the treadmill at the gym. I also have a friend who is a personal trainer and so he has recently been getting me into lifting weights which is a huge feat on its own! Snowboarding is also really fun to me, it works muscles I never knew I had! However, I do have my off days and so when I really don’t feel like leaving my room and walking all the way to the gym (I live by DHOP so walking to the gym can take a while), I tend to dance. It sounds weird, but I love to just dance completely ungracefully around in my room (I’m sure my five other roommates have heard me from time to time). I also have been practicing yoga for a few years now and it really benefits me physically and mentally by strengthening my body and also letting me focus on my breath so I can clear my mind.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
There are countless ways to eat healthy! If you exercise a lot, be sure to refuel your body with carbs and protein and your muscles will thank you. Also, eating a salad can sound pretty boring but if you add other things to it like a hard-boiled egg or pretzels (pretzels are actually amazing in a salad), you won’t feel like you’re just eating a bed of spinach or lettuce!
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
I find motivation to stay healthy by knowing that my body will function so much better if I treat it right. I love the feeling after a great workout knowing that I just accomplished something great, so having that feeling is a great incentive for me to exercise. I also find motivation by exercising in a way that is fun. Doing Zumba and other classes at the Hamel Rec Center gives you such a great workout but the time flies because you’re simply enjoying yourself and you have an instructor to keep you going the entire time.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
Committing to regular exercise like yoga has been a great investment in my health. The regular classes and teachers keep me motivated and coming back. Yoga is the perfect balance of physical and mental well-being.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
Give tofu a chance! It’s really yummy in stir-fry’s. Also, being healthy doesn’t have to be a chore. There are so many different ways to stay healthy and it can be fun, too!

What does health mean to you?: 
Health is not just being free of sickness or disease although that does factor into it. I think of health as the overall well-being and happiness of an individual.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
I make sure I am eating well each day even if I have back-to-back classes or am too stressed out. Also, I am friendly and project my positive attitude toward others to make them feel comfortable.
How do you stay fit?: 
I stay fit by attending the gym as frequently as possible and have occasionally taken yoga classes. Also, I participate in seasonal intramural sports such a flag tag football.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
I believe that eating in portions is extremely important. It is better to have a little snack here and there rather than starve and binge eat on the weekends or for one meal.
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
I find motivation to stay healthy through my friends who also enjoy staying fit. The group of people you surround yourself with is very important. Also, I do care about my appearance and strive to stay confident.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
I have colored my hair different but that is the only physical thing. Mentally I have come to terms with my appearance and have learned to accept that I am good just the way that I am.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
Eating the right foods, working out and being a positive person all comes together when we talk about health. If you can manage all of this you are on the right track to living a happy, healthy life.

What does health mean to you?: 
I look at health as something that completes a person emotionally, physically and mentally. Health to me does not mean focusing in on the minor details of obsessing over the small things in life. I have learned stress plays a major role emotionally and physically.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
To make a healthy UNH, I have reached out to students by sharing my knowledge on nutrition and work out plans. As a nutrition and ecogastronomy dual major, I have done events at the dining halls promoting local, clean and fair trade food to students. With the amazing crew at Holloway Commons, I was able to feature some authentic Greek recipes passed down through my family. These meals are healthy and seem extravagant but are created with simple ingredients. I have also done videos on featured nutrition topics, written blog articles and designed healthy meals with the foods in the dining halls, which were all made available to students through the Nutrition and Wellness UNH Page on Facebook. In my spare time I share my recipes and eating tips through social media with friends on Instagram. (Feel free to follow!)
How do you stay fit?: 
I grew up going to dance classes 4-5 times a week. Now that I lead a very busy schedule the activities I once enjoyed are harder to take part in. Within the last few years I have started yoga, doing high intensity interval training workouts for 15-20 minutes or Pilates. I usually do an interval workout 3 times a week with muscle building by incorporating weights with a Pilates workout. The other 3 days I usually do a flow yoga workout 30-45 minutes and take a rest day. I’ll do “yin” yoga, which is targeted more to stretch out the body and relax the mind 7 days a week with a varying time of 15-60 minutes if I have the time! For my workouts, I usually just put a DVD in my computer or subscribe to free workout channels online. All I have to do is make space in my room to perform the workout. Whenever there is a clear sky, warm or cold, I like to be outside hiking, rollerblading or biking.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
I am conscious of my food and make healthy choices. I think that cooking and buying as much fresh and organic as much as possible is great. Eating healthfully should allow for all types of non-processed food. I love to make my own granola bars, trail mixes and hummus. These are easy snacks to make that are cheap, healthy and free of artificial ingredients that are available throughout my busy days. Limit foods with ingredients that you can’t pronounce, enjoy foods in season like colorful vegetables and fruits and remember food is medicine. Give your body what it needs to function and what it needs to fuel your brain.
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
My day would feel incomplete without balanced meals and exercise. I am a morning person; I love to get up, make a cup of Detox Yogi tea and start a day with yoga or a quick workout. I always make sure I have a good breakfast with protein, fruit and whole grains. This gives me so much energy throughout the day. Being healthy makes me feel great mentally and physically. I also find motivation through friends; I love to include friends in hikes or cooking a meal.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
I have improved my health by nourishing my body with whole foods. I make most of my meals from scratch and utilize different food groups to create a complete and delicious meal. I do not cut out any foods or stick to any strict regimes. I have found workouts that I enjoy that are not harsh on my body. I have found complete balance through a mind, body connection.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
You can’t go wrong maintaining a healthy lifestyle! Even being healthy you can eat sweets, enjoy your favorite dishes and be lazy sometimes. The key to life is balance. You can’t ride the roller coaster forever. The ups and downs of different diets and extreme changes do not work. I may be passionate about nutrition and see leading a healthy lifestyle as easy but I guarantee that anyone can find one aspect of health and enjoy it!

What does health mean to you?: 
Health includes both physical and mental health. To me, physical health means a strong immune system which means not being sick often and a standard weight based on your height. Mental health means the ability to deal with pressure and keep optimistic.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
I like to work out more actively. So I choose to go to the Hamel Rec on our campus at least three times a week and I really love the lessons there, such as Step and Strength, Cardio Boxing, Zumba and Cycling. Sometimes, I just go to the gym and exercise there. Besides going to the gym, I like swimming, too. I go to the Swasey Indoor Pool once a week.
How do you stay fit?: 
Working out every other day for at least 40 minutes to an hour is a good way to stay fit and I think cardio exercise is a perfect option. In addition, swimming is a good way to release pressure and maintain a good body shape, particularly for women.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
Generally, eating more vegetables and fruits and trying to avoid junk food and other high fat and calorie food is very important. Green and dark vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, broccoli and black peas, etc. are good for the body. Fruits, apples are wonderful, and make you full and they contain many vitamins. Having an apple everyday also has the effect of anti-aging. Besides apples, oranges contain lots of vitamin C and bananas help people be positive and happier. I also go to our dining halls to eat, however, I always pay attention to the information tags of the food there. Stir-fry, Omelets, and yogurt are always my first options. After that, I’m almost always full, so I try Jello and a little dessert which contains higher energy. For drink, I think water is the healthiest drink. I rarely drink carbonated drink, coffee or some sweet drink such as hot cocoa. But if I do, I’d go work out that day. Generally, I try to keep a balance. In addition, I make lunch is the biggest meal for me, so I have time to burn calories. For dinner, I have fruits, oatmeal and nuts such as walnuts, almonds, pecans and cashews, etc.
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
Staying healthy should become a hobby. I know that one day, health problems could become a big burden for people who care about me if I don’t pay attention to my health today. So I always try to encourage myself. I like to envision a picture of me being healthier, particularly when I can’t persist and am about to give up.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
Since I’ve been exercising regularly, I haven’t been sick at all during the past two years. I think this is the biggest change. Also, I have become more optimistic and resilient to pressure. For example, after exercising, my mind is clearer and I become very calm, so I can concentrate more on the task on hand, instead of being anxious.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
My mom used to joke with me and say, “I don’t want to invest a large amount of money in the hospital, so stay healthy!” This is so true and I think our body is the biggest treasure in our life, so treat it nicely.

What does health mean to you?: 
To me, health means self-control, which essentially leads to happiness.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
I often go on runs around campus at the outdoor track, in College Woods, or at the Hamel Center for Recreation. I play intramural sports, go to Zumba and kick-boxing!
How do you stay fit?: 
I stay fit by working out at least four times a week, which includes my morning Physical Training with AFROTC. My other workouts include going to the gym or just going on a run. I usually set short term goals for myself before the workout to keep myself motivated. It is also good for me to have a long term goal such as a race; something I can train for and look forward to.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
One thing that helps me to eat healthfully is following health blogs on all my social networks. It helps to see what other people like me are eating. Don't eat just because you are bored. I always try to eat everything on my plate, even after I am full, and I end up regretting it. So, stop eating if you aren't hungry anymore.
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
Without my mental health, I cannot earn my degree and without my physical health, I have no mental clarity. When I look for motivation to stay healthy, I remind myself who I am representing every day; my family, my culture, women, etc. all of these keep me on track to becoming and staying an overall healthy person.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
The biggest change I have seen in myself is an attitude change. I have already spent too many years feeling uncomfortable with who I am, but actively working on my health has changed this. For example, each time I set a new personal record on one of my runs, I feel like I can do anything. Positivity and confidence are key.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
"You are like a chair and physical, mental, social, and spiritual health are each a leg of that chair. If one leg is shorter than the others or missing entirely, that chair will still stand up. However, when pressures are put on it or someone tries to sit in that chair it will fall over because it is imbalanced."

What does health mean to you?: 
Health is a positive lifestyle in mind, body, and spirit. It is overcoming obstacles and tough times and coming out on the other side a changed person. Whether it is going for a ten minute run in between class, going to the gym for an hour every day, running a 5k every weekend, or even skipping out on the cookie at Stillings, every person is different.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
I try my absolute best to keep a positive attitude. Having a positive attitude does wonders. It keeps you motivated and motivates others as well. I try to use the stairs as much as I can around campus and eat a well-balanced meal every day.
How do you stay fit?: 
I am an avid horseback rider so I ride at least 4 times a week during breaks and at least 2 times a week during the school year. Besides that, I like to switch between running around the track and using the machines at the Whit. I like to change up my work out schedule a lot to keep things interesting.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
If you are a snacker, try to keep healthy snacks around you. I keep things like yogurt, graham crackers, apples, rice cakes, trail mix, and fruit in my room to snack on. The best thing you can do is keep yourself busy and you will forget that you are hungry. When you eat at the dining halls, it is hard to keep your plate healthy with all of the options they give you. I stick to the first couple of stations in each dining hall because you can usually find a balanced meal such as a meat, vegetable, and a starch. Try to put at least one vegetable or fruit on your plate for each meal. Drink lots of water, eat in moderation, and focus on eating whole foods!
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
I find motivation in positivity, prayer, and through friends. I have a quote board by my door in my dorm room for quick inspiration before class and my friends and text each other upbeat texts throughout the day to keep us going. We motivate each other to stay healthy and active as much as we can.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
I’ve changed my mindset that exercise and being healthy doesn’t mean you have to do this rigid program 7 days a week. I started college thinking that was the only way you could stay active, and if I missed a day of my designated program, I would feel terrible about myself. Instead, I work out to feel good-mentally, instead of just physically. The physical stuff will follow. Hanging out with my horse, jogging around the track for ten minutes, or even just going for a walk around campus gives me great relief in my mind, body, and soul. I work out to relieve stress and help with my anxiety. If I feel tense or even if my posture isn't good, I know I’m all balled up inside and immediately head to the gym. I used to push myself too hard and there would be no run or relaxation involved. Since I have changed my attitude about working out I find myself ten times happier, relaxed, and stress free.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
This is your life so you can decide how you live it and what being healthy means to you. Don’t forget the support and encouragement of your friends and family around you and take advantage of all the things healthy UNH has to offer!

What does health mean to you?: 
Many people think of health as the food choices you make and your physical stamina but it is really so much more than that. Health goes beyond just physical status and includes mental and emotional health as well. Being healthy to me means that you are able to live a lifestyle in which you are able to do all the things that make you happy. For some people that is going for a 10 mile run every day, but for others it is taking a walk or gardening. Staying positive and being emotionally well is just as important to being healthy as making good food choices and staying active.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
As a dietetics student, I have more opportunities than most to make a healthy UNH. I encourage students to use the resources that UNH has available, such as the Whittemore Center, tennis courts, swimming pool, etc. to stay active. Intramural sports are also a great way to make new friends and stay active.
How do you stay fit?: 
As a student, I find it hard to have a consistent workout schedule so it’s always changing. Some days I will walk on my treadmill while catching up on the shows I’ve missed, and other times I will go for a bike ride. I play on a few of the intramural teams as well, which are some of my favorite memories here!
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
Eating healthy is a lot easier than most people think. There are so many nutritious foods that taste great and I think it’s important for people to go out and try new things. It is important to remember that there are no “good” or “bad” foods, and that everything is okay in moderation. There are also plenty of ways to sneak fruits and vegetables into the foods you already eat which will help you get on the right track.
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
One of the best benefits of living a healthy lifestyle is that it feels great! Staying healthy means being able to manage stress, have a great mood and feel like you can accomplish anything!
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
Yes, I recently learned how to better manage stress which is a huge part of staying healthy. I've found that staying organized, staying positive, and eating right has kept me feeling good about myself and has helped me accomplish a lot over the past few years.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
Being healthy is a lifestyle for everyone, and I think it is important to always have a goal to be working towards. Whenever you are having an off day you can always look at how far you have already gone toward achieving your goal! Stick to it and stay positive!

What does health mean to you?: 
To me the key to health is balance. While eating nutritious foods and exercising regularly is important, I think that making time & space for all the things you enjoy in your life is key to health.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
To start, I am a Healthy UNH intern! This allows me the opportunity to spread the message of health and wellness across UNH’s campus through blogging about different topics as well as promoting health at events. I also work for Rochelle L’Italien, the Registered Dietitian at UNH dining services. My job there is to work on various projects that promote nutrition issues in the dining halls. For example, for the past two years I have been working on creating a database of photos showing proper portion sizes of meal items available at the dining halls across campus. These photos can be found on the menu’s available at UNH dining’s website and are a great resource to help people make sure they are getting the proper portion sizes while eating on campus. Aside from that I simply try to lead by example by leading the healthiest lifestyle I can.
How do you stay fit?: 
I have a pretty busy course load so I don’t get to exercise as much as often as I would like to. Because of this I make sure that I walk or bike to class from my house off-campus. This ensures I am at least getting some physical activity every day. The few times a week I do find the time to exercise I like to go on runs around campus. Getting out in the fresh air after a day of classes is really refreshing. I also started practicing Yoga last year. Not only do I gain strength and flexibility while I practice, but it also serves as a chance to quiet my mind and focus my thoughts.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
The most important thing in my mind is balance. One thing I do is at each meal I try to have at least half of my plate be veggies. By doing this I ensure that I am getting some vitamins and nutrients at each meal and filling up on healthy foods. However, I always make sure I eat at least one thing I love per day. I don’t believe in depriving myself and I really think that eating healthy is all about moderation. Want to have an ice cream? Go for it! Just don’t have it at every single meal and make sure you are balancing it out with the healthy foods you need in your diet as well.
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
My motivation to stay healthy honestly comes from the way it makes me feel. The more I exercise and the healthier I eat, the better I feel.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
The biggest thing for me is how much better I feel since finding more balance in my life. My first year or two of school I struggled finding the time to get my work done, get enough sleep, exercise and eat well. Now that I do a better job at all of those things I find that I enjoy school a lot more and just feel like an overall happier and more energetic person.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
I would just add that I am so happy to be a part of the UNH community where health and wellness is so valued. UNH makes it easy to live a healthy lifestyle. The tools are all right here… you just have to figure out how to use them!

What does health mean to you?: 
Health means that both your physically well and mentally happy. When I am healthy, it means that my stress is down, I have energy to do the things I love and need to do, I participate socially with those I care about, I can work through most issues that come my way without being affected negatively, and my body feels good and without pain. Health is a way of life and although life isn’t always easy, if you can maintain that balance of physical health and mental health, then life will be fulfilling and memorable.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
I feel that I make a healthy UNH by being positive and supporting those around me to be happy and engaged in things they love that can help make them healthy. Whenever I can I encourage my friends to run/jog, hike, rock climb, or even just walk around with me. I even try to find fun events at UNH and outside to participate in for myself and my friends/co-workers. In fact, at the end of last semester a co-worker and I signed up for the color run; we spent a little money on it so we definitely could not back down, plus it’s the happiest 5k on the planet! I also do my best to let others know I am there for them for anything. I feel that helps create a healthy and strong relationship in which you can trust and rely on each other.
How do you stay fit?: 
I have come a long way in terms of being and staying fit. It took me 3 years to achieve my most fit self, which involved losing 80lbs and finding a healthy mindset. Back at my most fit, I worked at FedEx, went rock climbing 2-3 times a week, ran 2-3 times a week, and went hiking/biking or just participated in very active games such as soccer/football (though I mostly ran back and forth) etc. To stay fit nowadays, with all my schooling and many jobs, I try find jobs in which I must move and stay active. I am a life guard and swim instructor as well as a new personal trainer so in each position not only must I maintain and excel in my physical fitness but I am being active while performing my duties. Outside of my jobs I enjoying hiking, rock climbing (when I can), cleaning my condo with music on and moving to it, I go to the gym with my friend 2-3 times a week, and hop in the pool to do laps/aqua jog/ or tread water. During the summer, I help pick peaches and nectarines at an orchard, so that really works my upper body. Even if I go out for a night I always try and find a place I can dance in to keep me active.
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
Stock your home with non processed foods-fruit, veggies, and healthy homemade dips. Those really come in handy when you start to get hungry and you are plowing away at homework. I find that having small healthy snacks like nuts, fruits, veggies, and granola around help when you begin to feel hungry (I try to keep them in my purse or backpack). Drinking lots of water also helps to lessen your hunger cravings because you fill up on it. Finally, trying new healthy foods and recipes help to encourage eating healthy. Plus those are always the most flavorful foods!
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
There are still many times when motivation is hard to come by. Remember that you may have your down days or “cheat” days, but that’s okay. Just remember, if you start being active even for 5 minutes, that feeling will infect you and help encourage you to continue. Also, if you love to cook or bake or even just that you like to eat make it a challenge to find things healthy and new to try.
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
The biggest tangible improvement to my health has been my weight loss due to my positive change in my emotional and mental state. Ever since I was little, when under stress, I would “comfort” eat, now it wasn't just eating constantly but eating too many sweets or processed carbohydrates and at the wrong times. I still fall into the habit every now and then when my stress level is way high. But the more I focus on making myself happy and finding ways to remove unnecessary stress from my life, the less I find myself “comfort” eating. Over the last 5 years I have maintained a healthy weight along with feeling happier and more stable in my life.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
Love yourself. It is the hardest thing to do but I know that if you can do that than your health and life will be wonderful. Don’t deny things either to yourself that only sets you up for failure because if you “cave” into that which you have denied yourself then you will only make yourself feel bad. Moderation is key and making things enjoyable and special will help you moderate your treats.

What does health mean to you?: 
Health, to me, is having a positive mind and outlook on life. Obstacles only help us discover new things about ourselves and seeing it as an opportunity, rather than a problem, can make all the difference. Being healthy is also finding the right balance between yourself and the environment, while respecting both.
What do you do to make a Healthy UNH?: 
I have been a work study in the Business Services office for over a year now, assisting parents and students with all of their questions. It’s a great feeling being able to help out UNH families with the billing process, and seeing the excitement of incoming freshman always puts a smile on my face.
How do you stay fit?: 
I stay fit by living the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time I eat clean, whole foods and the remaining 20% is for my favorite treats like lattes and DHOP. I also try to buy local and fair-trade products as much as I can. I walk everywhere on campus and rarely take the bus, and College Woods is one of my favorite places to run!
Do you have any tips for eating healthfully?: 
Start with small changes! It’s easy to incorporate a small change a week, rather than doing a “cold-turkey” approach. Another tip is to know that you don’t have to be perfect! It’s great if you can eat healthy all the time, but it’s also okay to give into your cravings. That’s why I use the 80/20 rule. An 80 is still a B, so you can’t go wrong!
How do you find motivation to stay healthy?: 
I am a Nutrition major, so I’m always striving to learn the newest trends and topics in health. I also try to surround myself with healthy people. My mom recently lost 65 pounds, so we love to find new, healthy recipes and cook together. Jogging with friends is also a great motivator and gives you some friendly competition to push yourself!
Have you made any tangible improvements to your physical or mental well-being by making positive changes in your life?: 
This summer, I was inspired from a friend at home who had done a 5 week paleo/cross-fit challenge. I wanted to experiment and see how I felt after strict clean eating, so I kept a journal and tried it out myself. After only 3 weeks, not only did I feel like a brand new person, but I was also down 15 pounds. I have incorporated much of what I learned while doing it into my daily habits now. I have also found ways to cope with stress, like deep breathing and aromatherapy. Reduced stress has helped clear up my skin and decrease emotional snacking.
Anything else you would like to add?: 
Being healthy is a habit! While diets make work in the short-term, a healthy lifestyle will give you a lifetime full of endless benefits. There are so many different ways to improve your health, so remember to take some time and dedicate it to yourself!
