Outrun Cancer

Cancer. It’s a scary word. There’s a lot you can’t control when it comes to cancer, but there are a lot of things that you can. Some things you can do are to make sure you are getting enough exercise and maintaining a healthy weight.

The Department of Health and Human Services recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week, but there are a lot of ways you can achieve this goal! Think about what you enjoy doing and grab a friend to keep you motivated!

Make changes slowly by taking the stairs or parking a little further away than you need to. Keep track of your steps, and join our Tuesday Steps Challenge through Virgin Pulse! Click here for information on how Trilogy offers discounted gym memberships at select Planet Fitness and YMCA locations.

Hydrate Like a Champion

There is evidence staying hydrated can help lower your risk of certain cancers, such as breast cancer. Overhydration and underhydration both have a negative impact, and it is important to strike a good balance.

If you are younger, the best recommendation is to drink when you are thirsty. It’s important to drink water, tea, or black coffee rather than sugar-sweetened beverages to get the best benefit. If you want to spice up your water life, add fruit, or try sugar-free carbonated water. Check out the fruit-flavored water on Water Wednesday (9/15) at your campus!

For more information, check out the Week to Beat Cancer hydration challenge on Wednesday (9/15).

While this is the case for some resources like solar energy and wind, other resources like natural gas and fossil fuels are finite. Unfortunately, in […]

We recycle, I try to always utilize natural lighting in our home by opening the blinds instead of using electricity, Try to use the outside air and sun for heat/cool instead of the unit, utilize reusable containers instead of plastic or foam containers.

Something that I do to help the environment is always keeping reusable grocery bags in my car to avoid accumulating plastic bags at the grocery store. I have also created a habit of carrying my reusable straws with me everywhere I go, in case I want to stop for a Starbucks or a smoothie.

I was given a Soda Stream water carbonator for my birthday this year, which has cut down on the cans and bottles of flavored sparkling water my family uses. Not only are we drinking more water and less soda and juice, but we’re using less materials and buying less from the grocery store. This water carbonator lets us reduce, which has an even greater impact than recycling!

I still live in a college town while working for Trilogy remotely. To get out of my apartment, I tend to do my work at a local coffee shop. I used to drive there every time, but now that the weather is better I walk there. That way, I’m doing just a little bit to reduce the amount of air pollution. I also am very conscious of turning off the water when I brush my teeth!
