The Health Promotion Office logo represents the reality of a well-balanced life.
We often get messages suggesting we should find the “perfect balance” in our lives. The problem is that “perfect balance” is un-achievable, un-sustainable and un-desirable. The Health Promotion Office (HPO) promotes a resilience-building approach to life balance that acknowledges that being off-balance is part of the human condition – our natural state of being. It is a requirement for growth, learning, loving, serving and improving. HPO promotes critical thinking and engagement with resilience-building practices to bring a sense of purpose and intention to our individual daily choices and into the very design of our university community.
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.
-- Albert Einstein
