5 Tips To Stay Healthy
https://pxhere.com/id/photo/624428

There are already so many things that we have to deal with on a daily basis, is it fair that we must also deal with keeping ourselves healthy. I mean can't our brains and bodies just take care of all our needs and if we do happen to abuse our bodies with unhealthy foods can't our organs just make do with it. Like that's their only job.

Staying healthy is never easy and staying healthy, especially in college, is almost next to impossible.

You can have so many excuses to eat out or eat something absolutely decadent and ridiculous. Forget about trying to maintain healthy eating habits but there are literally a million excuses to not exercise or maintain any sort of physical activity. The world is your oyster to remain an unhealthy blob that is always too busy, stressed, or "out of it." You will always have a million reasons to not convert to a healthy lifestyle, but truthfully, you only need one reason to try your utmost to live your best healthy life.

Here are some ways in which you can maintain a healthy life:

1. Keep Impulses At Bay 

It is often very tempting to give into sinful impulses especially if you have been hungry for the whole day and haven't had the chance to eat yet. In this situation, try to keep yourself away from the grocery store, fast food restaurants, or even the kitchen. If you enter any of these places on a hungry stomach then you are bound to purchase or cook impulsively and impulsive cooking leads to unhealthy choices. Food is the best way to monitor and maintain a healthy lifestyle and often can be the hardest one to control, but you just have got to push through and instill a discipline.

2. Try One Thing 

It is important to get into some sort of physical activity. It's not necessary to have to do something highly intensive as long as you are doing something at all. It can be as something as simple as just walking everywhere you go to running three times a week.

3. Work Out With A Friend 

Working out with someone is a very effective method of working out. You don't necessarily need to do every physical activity with another person but working out with someone gives you an opportunity and motivation to head to the gym in the first place.

4. Don't Try Crash Diets 

Crash diets or diets that promise weight loss or something dramatic in a short period of time is a health hazard. Healthy living is an ongoing process which requires time. Don't indulge in crash diets that might often lead to frustrations when results are achieved in the given limited time frame.

5. Find Something You Love 

Finally, when trying to involve yourself in a physical activity try to engage in something that you find an interest in. It can be something like dancing, boxing or any other thing that interests you. As long as you are engaged you will be more encouraged to stay involved.

Healthy living is hard but not impossible. As long as you keep your wits together you will come out on the other side being healthy, wealthy and wise.

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
