Health is important for everyone. We all want to treat our bodies like temples, at least most of the time, because the body we have is the only one we got. We can't just replace our body. As I am trying to maintain a healthier lifestyle, I have learned some life hacks over the years which are actually really simple and can change your overall health status within just a few weeks. So here are some quick solutions to be a more healthy person, because we all want results fast. Future you will be happy with your choices.

1. Are you a coffee lover?

Get black coffee or just add a little almond milk!

2. Do you have to travel to work or class?

If possible, walk. It's so easy and natural to do and carving out ten minutes to walk to work and back is 20 minutes more exercise!

3. Is your pee yellow?

Well, if it is, It shouldn't be. Carry around a reusable water bottle to refill during the day. Some water bottle options are Hydroflasks and Nalgenes!

4. Eat unhealthy during the day?

Pack your meals ahead of time. If you pack a healthy lunch, you are more likely to eat it. I will pack my salad the night before and have fruit in bags ready to grab.

5. Do you eat breakfast?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and if you enjoy eating breakfast, eggs are quick and easy and can be made in a variety of ways. You can also hard-boil eggs the night before to eat at breakfast.

6. Are you a snacker?

If you snack on chips or granola bars, not all are bad for you, but by snacking on carrots, celery or fruits like clementines, grapes, and berries, you are providing your body with more nutrients and less calorie-dense food.

7. Are you constantly sore and injured?

Take a few extra minutes in the morning to stretch before starting your day.

8. Are you constantly overwhelmed and stressed?

Take a deep breath in for four counts through your nose, hold for seven to eight counts, and exhale through your mouth for four counts. Then repeat. This can calm you down quickly and lower your heart rate. With lower stress levels, less fat is stored.

9. Are you constantly tired?

Make sure to get eight hours of sleep. Designate and specify a bedtime and getting eight hours will become a habit and part of your daily routine.

10. Feeling like a daredevil?

Taking a shot of apple cider vinegar by itself of in water has produced great results for many people. It is a brutal taste, but if you can do it, I applaud you. Also, wheatgrass shots are extreme, but have had great results in overall health.

Cheers to a healthier lifestyle. Get after those healthy gains.

Starting My First Job In Over A Year Is A Lot To Take In

After the rough spring semester that I had, I'm glad that I got this job and that now I am getting the experience that comes with it.

The summer between my first and second years of college were both fun and boring, but I would say that it was probably more boring than before. The only reason because of this was because I didn't have a job at the time. I mean, don't get me wrong. Before I graduated high school and the summer after I graduated high school I had a job, but it wasn't a job that I thoroughly enjoyed or wanted to continue doing when I got back the summer after my first year of college.

Also, I wasn't lazy. I applied for a bunch of jobs but at the time only two of the jobs got back to me for an interview.

The first job said that they already had a lot of employees that were in college and while the second job said that they would call me back for another interview with the actual boss, I didn't get a phone call about it. So that summer was mostly spent with me at home doing housework as well as picking my brother up from band practices since he didn't have his license yet at the time. So you could guess that this was not a fun summer.

After that summer and learning that I would be able to move into the apartment complex that my friend Sam and I signed up for, I knew that I needed to get money in order to pay for things like groceries, utilities, and others. With that came finding a job. During the long winter break that I had, I was filling out job applications but no one was getting back to me. At this point, I was losing hope and praying that I could find a job as soon as possible so I don't have to apply to a place I didn't want to apply beforehand.

That was when I applied to two camps that were for children with special needs, and then after it passed the date of accepting applications, I got an email from one of the camps about a job interview. The hard thing was that it was hard to find time to do an interview because I had no time to come home from college and so I had to do a phone interview. But trying to find time to do a phone interview was hard because I had no free time. When I finally had time for a phone interview, I was so nervous about it. Afterward, I got told that I had gotten the job and that when I get home from school that I can go get the paperwork.

Now I am currently finishing my second week as a camp counselor and it is honestly one of the best things that could happen. After the rough spring semester that I had, I'm glad that I got this job and that now I am getting the experience that comes with it.
