My mind matters: Physical wellness

Invest in your mental well-being by learning about the eight dimensions of wellness.

What is physical wellness? Physical wellness is achieved by keeping your body in a healthy state — it's having the ability to carry out day-to-day activities without fatigue. Physical health is also linked to mental well-being. You can promote your own physical wellness through movement, sleep, nutrition and by being aware of your limits.

🦉 Find out what SAIT's student Outreach and Wellness Leaders (OWLs) are doing to promote their physical wellness.

On campus during COVID-19 reminders

If you're studying on campus, here are some helpful reminders to help keep classes on and COVID away from campus.

  • Don’t come to campus if you have any COVID-19 core symptoms, a close contact has COVID-19, you have COVID-19 or you’re being tested for COVID-19, or you’re in quarantine after travelling.
  • Read and complete the daily campus access form before you come to campus each day — and be honest.
  • Remember to use the designated building entrance. Don’t prop or hold open doors.
  • Wear a mask — inside, everywhere, all the time.
  • Follow the traffic flow signs — move in single file.
  • Maintain a physical distance of two meters from other people as much as possible.
  • Follow elevator etiquette and take the stairs if possible.
  • Be mindful of not wandering around buildings or lingering on campus after class.
