No matter how dedicated you are to staying physically active, sometimes going to the gym or lacing up your shoes for a run can feel like a chore.  The best way I have found to look forward to every workout and avoid the crowds at the gym is to take advantage of the group fitness classes UNH Campus Recreation has to offer.

It is widely known that health care costs are extremely high. Unfortunately in order to reduce the amount of money spent on health care costs, some people go without necessary care as an attempt to cut down. However, there are other options to save money other than avoiding the care that is needed.

The end of the semester is a time of transition. Whether you are graduating or just moving home for the summer it marks the end of one phase and the beginning of something new. Add finals on top of all of that and the end of the year can feel quite overwhelming. However there are lots of fun events to look forward to at the end of the semester. One of these is the May Day Carnival!

Food Bans in the UK Versus Band in the US

Monday, April 22, 2013
By: Courtney Eaton

The United States has a long list of food bans due to negative health outcomes of certain foods and ingredients. The United Kingdom has banned some foods and ingredients but it is not nearly as easy to research as foods banned in the US. This could be a result of the fewer restrictions placed on foods in the UK or perhaps less resources announcing these food bans. The difficulty I had researching this topic could also have to do with my lack of knowledge of British “food regulators” (for lack of a better term).

Battling Anxiety

Friday, April 19, 2013
By: Jenna Lindsey Channell

College is a time of great growth for a young adult. Sometimes, you completely lose sight of who you are. Negative thoughts and emotions can flood your mind, making it almost impossible to concentrate on anything truly important. I know first hand how difficult and lost anxiety can make you feel. It can debilitate you to a point where you wake up in the middle of the night shaking and short of breath. I battled anxiety my sophomore year of college and am proud to say that I am now happier than ever. I lost sight of what I wanted out of life.

By: Gabby Chesney

The end of the semester is approaching quickly and with that comes a mixture of excitement and dread. While everybody seems ready for the change of pace that summer brings, students don’t seem quite as excited about the end of the year projects, papers and exams looming in the distance. While these things are unavoidable, there are ways to prepare for finals while limiting stress levels.

Eating Clean

Friday, April 12, 2013
By: Haeley Stewart

There has always been a ton of focus put on different mainstream diets. Everything from Atkins and Southbeach to paleo and being a vegan are attempted by people worldwide. While I was scrolling through my twitter the other day killing time, I noticed someone posted something about this new thing called "Eating Clean." Since I have never heard of this before, I was intrigued and decided to figure out what eating clean was.
