Day after day, you are sitting at your desk and closed off from everything. You can feel the stress piling on as the day continues and there seems to be no end. You hope that when you get home it will not follow, but it does. You often go to others to talk about your day and how stressful it was. This may feel like a constant therapy session with your friends, but the benefits of being social have been proven to lower stress and improve mental health

Durham is alive again with the buzz of returning students! Campus is back in full swing with classes starting and friends reuniting. With so many changes happening, it can be hard to keep your head on straight and manage your stress. Maybe you’re an incoming freshman and are having a hard time adjusting to dorm life or making new friends. Maybe that first day of that Biochemistry class made it seem like it will be way over your head. Maybe you’re not comfortable in your dorm yet and don’t feel at home.

Ever feel like something’s on the tip of your tongue but you just can’t recall what it is? Or feel like you have so many things to remember, you have to write everything down or else your thoughts will be completely lost? Being a college student, I often feel overwhelmed with the amount of information I have to process, retain and recite.

Looking for a cool new workout during the hot summer? Why not try swimming? Swimming is fun and can be a great workout, not to mention it's way better on your joints than pounding the pavement. It's a low impact activity that uses your entire body against the water resistance. Swimming continuously keeps your heart rate up and builds endurance. The activity combines cardio training and muscle strengthening for a total body workout. As you are pushing yourself through the water, you are also improving balance, posture, and coordination.
