Physical wellness can be achieved through regular exercise, proper nutrition, and abstaining from harmful habits such as drug use and alcohol abuse.
Developing healthy habits can add years to your life and enhance the enjoyment and quality of those years.
Take a quick break from your work, enjoy nature, socialize, and get some exercise in! The Wellness Walking Group meets outside of the northwest entrance of the Spokane Academic Center every Tuesday at 12:10 p.m. for a 30-minute walk.
