Movement

Messaging Considerations


  • Frame benefits of movement around increasing energy levels, self-esteem, memory and concentration, connecting with others through group movement and supporting mental health.
  • Emphasize that all types of movement are beneficial, and exercise doesn’t have to always be rigorous or intense.
  • Avoid messages surrounding weight, shape or size as reasons to exercise.
  • Be sure that your language is inclusive to people of all different abilities and experience with movement.

Activities


  • Invite Recreational Sports to stream a virtual exercise class for your residents. Access it here.
  • Organize outdoor events such as hikes, yoga, or stretching sessions with residents, while accounting for the different abilities and needs of every resident.
  • Encourage residents to go for walks, or organize a group walk. Find campus routes.
  • Promote scheduling time to move on a regular basis through posters, flyers, social media messages, etc. Make messaging accessible by including a time factor, such as suggesting 20 seconds of neck movements while sitting and studying.
