to the ’80s when Olivia Newton John was brazenly telling everyone she
met, “Let’s get physical!” It’s still true today,
and maybe even more so. Advances in technology have us sitting a lot more

Find out what your body responds to. And definitely check with your doctor
before you start training for the Ironman (Ironwoman!). See what’s
happening at the PAC (Physical Activities Center).
You can also visit www.smallstep.gov and
see a list of over 100 ideas for little ways to add extra exercise to your
day. (Here’s one: don’t drive from Sky 1 to Sky 3!) And the TestWell
Wellness Inventory can help you figure out where your strengths and weaknesses
are and how to deal with them. So the next time you hear Olivia sing “Let’s
get physical”, you’ll say, “Okay Newton, I’m in!”
