3 Reasons Why You Should Live a Healthy Life in College

Despite what the movie industry is telling you, college isn’t just a time for reckless fun and binge drinking. True, college means more independency, but with this so longed independency, comes great responsibility. It’s time you started living life on your own, and it is your responsibility to learn how to take proper care of yourself, both inside and out.

Diet related illnesses

We know how overwhelming starting college can be. You’re registering for classes, meeting new people, keeping up with school assignments and stressing over exams. Undoubtedly, these changes are affecting your diet behavior. You go from home cooked meals to frugal canned noodles dinners, binging on junk food or anything else that gets the job done-keeping you full. Did you know that besides gaining weight, a bad diet could lead to more serious health problems? For example, if you give your body too much sugar and refined carbohydrates, you’re doing nothing but let candida be part of your life, because what sugar does to you, is that it lowers your immune system and impairs the ability to fight infection. Also, according to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, unhealthy eating and inactivity cause almost the same number of deaths as tobacco does, and 13 times more than are caused by guns.

A poor diet and a stressful lifestyle could cause serious harm to your health. You may not see it now, but it is true. Have you heard of the Leaky Gut Syndrome? It is an increased intestinal permeability that happens when the tight junctions in the gut don’t work properly, thus letting potential harmful substances leak into the bloodstream. Main symptoms include chronic diarrhea, abdominal pains, throbbing headaches, skin rashes, joint pain, anxiety and in worse cases, autoimmune diseases such as lupus, celiac disease or Chron’s disease. For more information on how to prevent and fight this, watch this video about leaky gut.

Try and maintain a healthy diet, including plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit and try to cut down as much as you can from processed foods that are oh-so-delicious but oh-so-nutrient-empty. Make a schedule and exercise two times a week for a better immune system and for increasing your concentration levels.

Alcohol related problems

The time has come. You are now faced with countless partying options, never-ending fun-time possibilities, your social agenda is full and you’re thinking to yourself, “This is the life!’’. Frat parties are a real thing, and they are part of the experience. However, you should be aware of the dangers. Huge amounts of booze can be tempting and they could easily get you hooked on binge-drinking. No one said anything against enjoying the occasional beer or cocktail, but be careful: your body is young so you may not be feeling the immediate effect that comes with drinking, which is hangovers, but you needn’t forget about long term effects, such as liver illnesses, heart disease, pancreatic problems or even cancer. Also, studies show that drinking and memory loss go hand in hand. Drink responsibly because what you do now, will affect you later on in life.

3 Tips to Making the Most out of Your Summer Vacation

College is a time where we step back and focus completely on learning, more than any other period in our lives. However, this is also a point where we need to look at how to make our time count. If you ask any professional what’s the most important skill to have, it would have to be making time count from every corner. Being able to look at exactly the best way to maximize your time in the summer is the key to getting opportunities that others may not receive.

1. Check Your Network!

Network

Did you know that most opportunities aren’t even published? That’s right: in order to get the really good internships and other opportunities, you’re going to have to get really close to your network. You should already be doing this, to make sure that you sound as authentic as possible. After all, no one likes to feel like they’re just being used for their connections.

On the other hand, people also want to be useful. There is no point in knowing a bunch of people if you feel that you can never ask them for advice. Having people help you find the perfect summer job may take some time, so you should be looking into it all the time. Even though we’re talking about this in the middle of summer, right as school is about to come back into session, you might be surprised at how a quick summer job can turn into something you can take to school with you.

2. Volunteer!

Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to add stuff to your resume because a volunteer is often given tasks that you wouldn’t get anywhere else. They know that you’re young and trying to get as much experience as you can. So the challenge here will be to volunteer somewhere that’s going to be a help to your career. The good news is that even if the charity you pick seems unrelated, there are some basic functions that you can always do. For example, if you’re studying technology in some way, you could always volunteer to build new functionalities into the charity’s web site. There is always an ongoing to-do list involved for charity organizations, because they want to ensure they can reach out to a new crowd of people and also get donations coming in. Without steady contributions to the charity, they can’t stay afloat. Your support position as a volunteer helps them grow, since they don’t have to pay you any money.

Preparing Yourself for Law School

One of the most frequently asked questions aspiring lawyers have is how do they best get prepared for law school. That can be a challenging question for several reasons. Those entering law school may be doing so right out of undergraduate school. Others may come to law school after years of professional experience elsewhere in the real world. In addition, there are ultimately, many legal disciplines to choose from. There are differences in how to best prepare to become medical malpractice lawyers in Oregon or to be become international law specialists elsewhere.

Law School

What the American Bar Association has to Say

The American Bar Association (ABA) states that they do not specifically recommend undergraduate majors to prepare for a legal education. In spite of that, they do mention some courses that have traditionally served as majors for those ready for law school. These traditional subjects include history, philosophy, political science, business, economics, and English. The type of law that interests you may help you decide undergraduate courses. Medical malpractice lawyers may find taking nursing or science courses of value.

For those still pursuing their undergraduate degree, a Pre-Law Advisor at your school may be able to help you select appropriate courses that suit your interests. Remember, while you are certainly looking to broaden your education, you are also trying to develop certain skills like problem solving, critical reading and writing, oral communication skills, and improved research skills. These skills will serve you well in law school and in your legal career.

Don’t Become a Beauty School Dropout: Important Dos and Don’ts for Students

Interested in enrolling in beauty school? If so, then of course you want to prepare yourself so that you have the best chances for success. The last thing you want is to become a literal beauty-school dropout. Fortunately, there are all kinds of steps you can take to help prepare yourself for success in beauty school and well into your career. Just be sure to keep a few important dos and don’ts in mind.

DO Gain Relevant Experience While in School

Formal education is only going to teach you so much, which is why it’s good to expose yourself to as much relevant experience in the field as you can while in school. Yes, this might mean taking a less-than-glamorous job as a hair-washer or front-desk worker at your local hair salon or spa, but you might be surprised at how much you learn about how such facilities run. This is information that could be extremely useful to you not only in your studies, but in your practice as well.

DO Know How to Network to Your Advantage

Networking is key when you’re in school and when you’re practicing as an esthetician, hair stylist, cosmetologist, or anything in between. It’s never too early to begin working towards building a client base, so begin practicing your networking and marketing skills early on while you’re still in school. You never know how many clients you could have waiting for you when you graduate! You might even consider networking now by ordering business cards and passing them out to prospective clients; just be sure not to make any claims that aren’t true (such as claiming you’re licensed). Until you can actually start practicing, building an online portfolio that’s complete with pictures of your work can also be a great idea.
