Just a note to tell you about the latest benefit I have experienced by participating in the Wellness Program:Do you have a wellness success story that you would like to share? Please send it to Kelly Bright or Jill Yeiter so we can promote wellness in Student Affairs and at Weber State.
Over a week ago, our office held our annual retreat at Zions Park in Southern Utah. An optional activity was the hike/climb up to Angels Landing for the 11 of us staff members. I was one of only four people who felt "fit" enough to make the climb. It was a strenuous hike for a total of 41/2 hours up and back but I also found it exhilarating and so worthwhile the effort! The only side effect was some mild soreness in my arms the next day when I came to work on a Friday from pulling myself up on those chains on the trail to the top of Angels Landing the day before. I know that my Wellness workouts for the previous 10 weeks prepared me well enough to have the stamina for a successful experience. Yea Wellness!
