Summer is typically the time when most of us make those ever lasting memories and as always, it comes and goes so fast Warhawks! We have only a couple weeks left till school starts and for most of us, we are trying to soak up the last Continue reading

I Think We Need to Take a Break…

…from social media. “I think we need to take a break” gives you anxiety by just reading it in your head, so it’s fair that when someone tells you it’s time to take a break with social media, you freak out. I’m not saying you need to take a break because social media is “toxic”, because it doesn’t have to be. Just as anything, you have the power to make your social media experience nontoxic. I am telling you to take a break because of the benefits it has! Continue reading

Heavily Meditated

Meditation…one of the hardest and confusing things I’ve tried. Meditation is such a weird concept. How can sitting still in one place, and breathing deeply help you? Don’t we already do that in class? Yes BUT it’s different, I swear. In order to begin understanding Meditation, you need to know the textbook definition of it.

It’s All About A Happy Medium

As a college student, the summer time usually means meeting up with old friends, spending time with the family, or vacation adventures. Although these are all the perks of summer, these couple months off of school also usually mean saving up money by working as much as humanly possible. College is undeniably one of the first places young adults learn how fast money really goes. As important as it is to save money, it is equally as important to find that happy medium between work and leisure.

 

Let’s take a step back into the past, right around the beginning of May; You just finished up that stressful week of finals and cannot wait to head home for the summer. After that first weekend home, you start working every day and the thought of school has become extinct in your brain. Before you know it, it will be the end of August and you will be repacking up your things to take on this next semester of homework, quizzes, and finals. That being said, it is important to take some time this summer for yourself to help rebuild that mental fortitude you will need to finally get that 4.0 in the fall.

 

At this point, I know exactly what you’re thinking, “I want to have fun this summer but I’m trying to save money for school.” Although it may seem that way, enjoying this summer doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. There are so many options for activities this summer that are either very cheap, or even FREE. Yes, free. Who ever said we’re too old to go to a local park and play catch or soccer with some friends? Or what about catching some rays at the closest beach? There are endless options for you to take advantage of this summer to relax your mind.

 

Many people neglect the mental health part of your overall health. Keeping your mind strong will help you see improvement in almost every other thing you do. In order to do that this summer, it is important to take that step back from everything you have going on and just devote some time for yourself in something you love to do.
