Benefits of the Gallon Challenge

Drinking one gallon of water a day can benefit you in so many ways!

Benefits of the Gallon Challenge

You body is mainly water, so it makes sense that it requires continued hydration. However, most doctors only 'require' you to drink eight cups per day (64 ounces) or half your body weight in ounces! Drinking more than the required amount can give you so many extra benefits that you don't realize you need until you get! After only a week of the challenge, it is almost guaranteed that you will look and feel noticeably different and healthier! So why not try?

1. You will have more energy!


Most people are under the assumption that the only drinks that can provide energy are the ones that contain caffeine. However, water hydrates your body and mind, allowing them to be refreshed and energized all throughout the day without any caffeine or sugary drinks.

2. You will feel full faster!


Drinking water is one of the easiest dieting tricks! By drinking a gallon a day, your body will be under the illusion that it is full longer and faster, so that you end up not eating as much and less frequently!

3. Your skin will start to clear up!


Now, drinking a gallon of water a day won't magically erase all of your pimples, but it definitely helps! Along with a proper skin care routine and no extra sugary drinks or foods, your skin should be in pretty good shape!

4. Workouts will be at least a little easier to get through!


Keeping your body hydrated is so important when exercising. If your body is well hydrated, you are less likely to get fatigued as quickly and not as likely to experience cramping.

5. Avoid unnecessary calories!


Another beneficial diet tip is to not drink your calories! Drinking a gallon of water a day allows you to keep your calories for more yummy food.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
