1. Explore UBC

The UBC campus is so vast and beautiful, so  go out and explore! If running isn’t your speed, just go for a walk and enjoy this scenic campus that we are lucky enough to study on. Check out Pacific Spirit and explore the trails; by taking the stairs down to Wreck Beach, you can sneak in a quick workout up those 500+ stairs.

3. Dance during study breaks

This isn’t your typical workout, but don’t underestimate the power of a dance party. When studying has got you down, turn up the music and dance! It’s a great stress reliever and gives you a fun workout, while still being on top of your school work.
