Summer is for fun activities, vacations, swimming, and also some relaxation. While summer is hectic and can have a lot of rushing around at times, it also is a time to slow down and re-energize. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a summer night curled up on the couch watching a movie. I personally love watching movies with my friends and family. I live for movie marathons. So I decided to give at least five of my personal favorite movies for your viewing pleasure this summer!

1. Any Marvel movie.

I realize most people have seen most of the Marvel movies, however, having a Marvel movie marathon is perfect for summer! You can stretch the movies out and watch them with your family and friends! These are perfect for families to watch together! There are loads of laughter, action, adventure, and some heartwarming moments through all of the Marvel movies! Plus if you finish the marathon in time, you can go see Endgame in theaters at the end of it!

2. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

This movie is hilarious! It is perfect for any movie night. This movie is guaranteed to make you laugh. The cast is perfect together and everyone gives a great performance! Gather the family around and enjoy this modernized Jumanji!

3. How To Train Your Dragon

This is probably my favorite animated movie. Usually when an animated movie takes off and then they make a sequel to it, the sequel is never very good. However, with How To Train Your Dragon, that is not the case. The trilogy gets better with every movie. This movie is great for kids and adults! Another great movie to watch with the family!

4. The Greatest Showman

This is a great movie! It might be iffy for some people because it is a musical, but I promise this is so entertaining! The music is fantastic, as is the choreography, and the acting! Another great movie for the family on a summer night!

5. Harry Potter

Giphy

Another great option for a movie marathon would be the Harry Potter movies! Again, most people have seen these. However, if you have a rainy weekend or a weekend to relax these are great to have a movie marathon on those types of weekends. The magic, friendship, love, and sense of wonder in these movies make them perfect to watch with the family or even by yourself.

These were just my personal favorite movies! Hope you enjoy them!

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. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

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, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

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.
