Let’s talk about IBS, irritable bowel syndrome, a  group of symptoms that effect the large intestine. Approximately 20% of US adults have IBS. The symptoms of IBS can be rather uncomfortable such as abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, constipation, and gassiness. Keep in mind, these symptoms could be caused by other factors, and not necessarily IBS.

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.

As finals are here, now is a great time to talk about procrastination. It may seem like you have plenty of time to study and finish all your assignments, but with a full course load, you will probably need all the time you can get. Procrastinating and getting distracted can put you way behind schedule. What may seem like a quick Facebook break, can easily turn into an hour long process of looking through random people's pictures (we all know it happens) or taking countless Buzzfeed quizzes. All this procrastinating can lead to stress and unnecessary anxiety.

For my nutrition class freshman year, I had to wear a pedometer everywhere I went for 3 days. I felt a little silly walking around with it attached to my belt loop but at the end of those three days we were able to average our steps and convert it into miles. It was really cool to see how much I was actually walking, on average about 6 miles a day! That 6 miles was just from my daily activities: walking to classes, to the library, to the dining halls. You may not have time to get to the gym everyday but that's okay. You can get a lot of physical activity in just by walking.

The dentist may not be everyone's favorite place to go and it may be tempting to ditch a few visits but skipping on these appointment could cause much more harm than an uncomfortable visit.  Just think about all the things we use our mouth for, talking, singing, eating. It's important to keep our mouth healthy so that we can continue using it without any pain.

As the ground is finally unthawing and the leaves are starting to grow, it's time to start getting outdoors again! Spring is finally (FINALLY) here and what better way to celebrate than to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air while working out? One of my favorite outdoor activities is hiking. It's a really great form of exercise and can also be good for your mental health.

Mid-semester is often a stressful time for everyone. Midterms, exams, papers, and projects all seem to pile up at once and you are suddenly left with no free time at all. Everyone is tense and worried about their own workload. This can often lead to harsh attitudes and bitter tones even between your closest friends. The best way to avoid this unnecessary drama is laughter. Laughing immediately puts you in a better mood and lightens your spirits. Just think about it, have you ever felt mad or annoyed while laughing?
