Commit to Well is a campuswide incentive challenge hosted by UARK Wellness during the month of February. The purpose of the challenge is to encourage the U of A community to explore the wide variety of wellness opportunities around campus while focusing on the eight dimensions of wellness. The eight dimensions are social, environmental, occupational, spiritual, financial, emotional, intellectual and physical.

Participants earn points for doing any type of physical activity and completing a variety of wellness challenges. The fitness and wellness points earned will determine the prizes awarded at the completion of the challenge.

"Participation in the challenge introduced me to the various dimensions of wellness and helped me improve my overall well-being," said Carolyn Shoemaker, program coordinator for University Recreation. 

"I also enjoyed the competitive side of the challenge and the point system encouraged me to stay committed in order to win prizes."

Participants may sign up for the challenge and log the completion of the fitness and wellness activities beginning on Feb. 1. at fitevent.uark.edu or urec.uark.edu/fitness/special-events.

"This event is free and open to all university faculty, staff and students," said Casey Fant, assistant director of fitness wellness for University Recreation.

"We want to encourage and promote health and wellness across the campus community."
