A Healthy Pick-Me-Up

Returning to school in the spring semester can be quite draining for any student. Going from a cozy house, filled with family and friends to waking up at early hours and trekking across campus in below freezing temperatures can tire even the most active person. To even hold your head up you might buy two or three coffees a day. Before you go and purchase that fourth cup, think twice about what other healthy alternatives are out there to help wake you up!

What is HIIT?

Friday, February 22, 2013
By: Haeley Stewart

Losing weight, working out consistently, eating healthy foods, spending less money and making sure to floss are all very popular New Year's resolutions. Ever since the calendar struck January every magazine features some new way to help you drop pounds, clothing stores move their workout gear to the front entrance and every other commercial is about some new diet pill that will transform your body. Instead of feeding into these traps and fads that set you up for failure (whether it is with your body goals or your wallet) why not transform yourself the right way.

My Experience Using England’s Healthcare

Friday, February 15, 2013
By: Courtney Eaton

On Tuesday, the 22nd I went to the Soho NHS Walk-In Clinic of London and was able to experience the difference between the US healthcare and that of London first-hand. Since my arrival in London I have had this cold that I just could not kick. It seemed to be getting worse and I feared a sinus infection, so I eventually went to the Soho NHS Walk-in Medical Clinic. First, let me note that Soho is a fantastic part of the city; my favorite part thus far.

The Snow-Day Workout

Wednesday, February 13, 2013
By: Jenna Lindsey Channell

As I was sitting in my apartment, cooped up during the crazy snowstorm we had this weekend here in Durham and I started thinking about how I can get a workout without having to trek across campus to the gym. I also did not have the tools to ski or snowshoe, so how could I exercise at all?

The cost of healthcare is a huge issue on the national stage as the United States tries to come to terms with its overwhelming state of national debt. Concern is growing especially among young people who will be given the task of dealing with the mounting debt. The nation’s debt comes from many sources, but healthcare is a big contributor.

Relationships Improve Mental Health

Friday, February 8, 2013

Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine's Day is coming, in only a few! Excuse my lame attempt at a poem, but whether you like it or not Valentine's Day is right around the corner.  Some people are excited to take their significant others out for a special date and others are sitting in their room stewing over how this is the world's stupidest holiday. Whether you are pro-Valentine's Day or completely against it, there is no denying that it takes a toll on your mental health in some way.
