The key for a great paddle boarding experience is to make sure you go out when the waters are nice and calm. The last thing you want is for turbulence to knock you down each time you try to get on! Here are some of my favorite things I look forward to when paddle boarding.

You get to watch a beautiful sunset over the water.

Picture this: There's a beautiful sunset over the horizon and you're excited to countdown. The last thing you want is for someone to sit in front of your view. If you paddle during the sunset you are going to get the best views on the beach!

If you get lucky you will see some dolphins.

Being able to paddle far out means you'll have a higher chance to encounter some marine life. If you paddle early in the morning you might even see some dolphins swimming around.

It's a test to see how great (or not so great) your balance can be!

Do you think you have good balance? Test it out by trying to stand on a paddle board. It may look easy but it requires more balance than you think!

You can make it a party and paddle with a friend!

Paddle boards can fit more than one person. If you do not want to paddle alone, bring a friend! It will require more balance coordination but that makes it even more fun and adventurous.

Makes for great Instagram pictures.

If you didn't take a picture while paddle boarding did you even go? Check out Pinterest for some great paddle boarding picture ideas!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
