Stress Reduction Consider how likely you would be to agree if one offers you the opportunity to better your health and your physique while at the same time getting rid of the everyday stresses. I once read that for college students, minor hassles, rather than major life events tend to maintain stress at unhealthy levels. But exercise is one of the essential elements to help lower stress. In an effort to help students, and teachers, to lower stress levels, I analyzed the ambiance found at Miami Dade South track facility. MDCC track offers a 400 meters facility with seating capacity for about 450 people (in permanent concrete bleachers) and additional temporary bleachers suited for 200 more. The track is located behind the pool (building 7000) and between the baseball and soccer fields.
The track is made out of red clay, consists of eight lanes clearly separated by white lines, and painted with their respective numbers. The hours of operation of the track are from Monday thru Friday 7:00 to 2:30 PM and 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM; Saturdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 PM and Sundays is closed. Advantages of working out at the MDCC track are that the track is well lit and the students can go right after classes. In the middle of the track there is a well-trimmed grass area that can be utilized while warming up or cooling down. It is favorably recommended for any MDCC student to make use of the campus facilities, especially the track. Not only one will get natural stress reduction while jogging running for walking, but it is also free.
In order to enjoy. MDCC track and avoid potential for injury here is a small list to utilize in order to get better results: 1) Start out by wearing comfortable shoes 2) Drink plenty of water throughout the day and try to eat healthy 3) Warm up for at least 10 minutes before starting your exercise (running, jogging or walking); make sure you give your muscles a good stretch without over exhaustion. 4) Start your exercise (run, jog or walk) and continue it for at least 15 minutes. Enjoy the view at MDCC. Look at the people around you and try to get “pepped-up”. 5) Finish your exercise by cooling down for at least 5 minutes in the same way you did your warm-up.
I am by no means a true expert on fitness and health but I am giving a fist hand account of what turns out to be a very relaxing experience at the track of Miami Dade. I hope you can enjoy it too!.
