People who exhibit type A personalities tend to be very well on top of things, but having this sort of personality actually raises your risk of cardiovascular (heart) disease later in life, as proven by research done a few years ago.

New Hampshire was extremely fortunate not to receive the full force of Hurricane Sandy; however, students here come from all over the country. If you happen to be from one of the hard hit areas, such as New Jersey or New York, do not hesitate to talk to a friend or a support system about it.

After our first week of classes I think it is safe to say that some of us are overwhelmed by our class schedules, afraid of future homework and project loads and are already stressing for the exams that span our whole semester. Instead of making yourself crazy, engage in some of these stress reducing behaviors.

Many students only think about going to the Health Services when they are sick enough to miss class, myself included, but this year Health Services wants to really promote personal well-being. The other day, the Director of Education & Promotion, Kathleen Grace-Bishop, came to speak to a student group that I am involved in. She spoke about what Health Services has to offer, and I was completely blown away. She emphasized that they have recently hired two new massage therapists to keep up with the student demand, and now individual meditation lessons are offered.

This reoccurring emotion has a name and it’s called stress. As defined by dictionary.com, stress is the pressure or tension exerted on a particular object. When your body becomes to feel stressed, it reacts by preparing either to “fight or flee” the situation. When this is activated, adrenaline and norepinephrine are released to focus attention on the task at hand.
