A well-balanced life is a fruitful life. As the saying goes, ‘work hard, play hard’ so should ‘study hard, exercise hard’ be a common practice. All too often the joke about your weight gain during University becomes reality. When your body is in order, so then will your mind follow suit, and vice versa. If you properly care for your body then you have paved a steady foundation for your mind to grow and to be strengthened. The campus of Queensland University of Technology, of Brisbane, is home to a fantastic aquatic and fitness centre which is operated by YMCA.
