UMD Wellness - Spring 2007

March 1 - April 30, 2007

All you have to do is keep track of your daily 15 minutes of physical activity and consumption of 5 A Day servings of fruits and vegetables.

Take a walk. Climb the stairs. Work in the yard. Physical activity need not be strenuous to be good for you. Wear your pedometer!

Why 5 A Day? The 5 A Day for Better Health Program is a national initiative to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables by all Americans. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables every day will promote good health and may help reduce the risk of stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, and some cancers. (Source:
