Five Health And Wellness Tips For 2018
Your Health Solution

It's a brand new year, and that means that there might be some catching up for you to do. While the holidays are a lot of fun, there's also a lot of partying and calories that come along with them. A lot of people have goals to get back on track in the new year, whether you're one of them or not, it's still important to refresh and rejuvenate your body after a few weeks, or months, of packing on the calories. Whether it's by drinking a little too much alcohol, or just munching on a few more cookies than you expected, we're all guilty of indulging a little too much. But have no fear, there's plenty of time to cancel out those calories! So here's some tips to help you get back on track and give your body a fresh start in this brand new year.

1. Take care of your mental health and wellbeing.

Let's face it, if you're not where you want to be mentally, you're never gonna get where you want to be physically. The biggest obstacle to get over when it comes to staying in shape and living a healthy lifestyle is that little voice in your head telling you that you can't do it, or it's not worth it. If you're taking care of your mental health, and valuing who you are as a person, you're already one step closer to living a healthier lifestyle.

2. Try a cleanse.

Whether it's a juice cleanse, or you're drinking some tea (which is what cleanse I'm doing right now) both are great options to flush out all of those toxins and calories that are in your system now.

3. Drink lots of water.

Water is another great way to keep your body running clean and smooth. It's helps to flush out toxins in your system, keep your metabolism going, and keep you feeling good. Staying hydrated is so important to make sure that you're feeling like your best self everyday.

4. Get on a clean diet.

This is one that I'm trying to keep myself on as well. While I love drinking water and focusing on self-care and love, I struggle with following a clean diet. I love carbs. Pizza, pasta, bread, you name it, I'll eat it. And at the same time, I'm not the biggest fan of salads as a meal. So I'll be working hard to follow some of my own tips as well!

5. Get into a workout schedule.

There's truly power in strength and confidence. While mental health is really the first step to getting into a healthy routine, there's no better way to bolster your self-confidence than by working out and seeing change and growth in your body.

So here's a few tips to take into the new year with you to make 2018 your best and healthiest year yet! It's hard to stay on track during the holidays, but there's no better time to get back on the wagon than in a brand new year.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
