Environment

Your environment includes your residence, the places you visit, your campus, workplace and community.  These environments have characteristics that can support your well-being.  For example, how the community manages trash and human waste influences health.  Walking paths and well-lit sidewalks, roads and bike-paths promote physical activity.  Light, color, aromas, noise, air quality, population density, safety and many other factors contribute to health and wellness.  While some of these factors may seem out of our personal control, we can take actions to improve the environments in which we live, which in turn helps to create a healthier place for those who share our environment.
