I’ve always loved stretching and meditating. I can attribute this practice to my mom, who teaches Hatha yoga. Growing up, stretching was a part of my daily life. If I were stressed, I would do some stretches and deep breathing to try to calm down. This practice has followed me to college and has helped me calm down many times when overwhelmed with academic and personal commitments. I usually have practiced on my own, but have recently started taking yoga classes downtown at Three Bridges Yoga .

Summer is rolling around and that means heading home from school and finding a new workout routine. While some people might have membership at a gym at home, many people find working out in the house or outside to be a better option. If you are looking for workout inspiration, look no further!

During these past couple of months, campus has been full of prospective freshman touring the campus and attending orientation. Last weekend I was able to take part in an orientation for incoming freshman where myself and Jenna Channel, another Healthy UNH intern, talked to new students about what Healthy UNH is and what we do on campus. While talking to a lot of these new students, a HUGE concern was gaining the “freshman fifteen” and how to be healthy once they were on campus.

Anxiety is defined as apprehension to an upcoming event and as college students, we have plenty of reasons for having anxiety. Anxiety can stem from an upcoming test, ten page paper, an overflowing to do list or even just finding a parking spot in order to make it to class on time. Symptoms to look for in determining if you suffer from everyday anxiety are things like increased heart rate, lack of concentration in school and work, having issues sleeping or just not being your normal self.

Each day I think I lose a few hours of my life due to the amount of smokers here in London. It is not like in the United Sates, where if you walk past a smoker you can just hold your breath and happily breathe fresh air after you pass them. If you tried to do this on the streets of London you would pass out. According to the ASH (Action on Smoking and Health) foundation , one in five British adults smoke, compared to less than a sixth of Americans.

Prawn is something I had not seen before arriving here in London. I came across it in places you would expect such as on pasta or in a stir fry or fried, but I also came across it in unexpected places such as in a salad on a sandwich and as a flavoring on crackers and chips. I wanted to see what the hullabaloo was about.
