The Importance Of Working Out

Why we should all be working out.

The Importance Of Working Out

The gym became my oasis in the tenth grade and I immediately figured out that it was one of the best feelings in the world.

Before working out extensively in the gym, I went to dancing school for about twelve years. I've been active my entire life, and there's never a day where I'm not active. I really believe in the power of working out and the beneficial effects it has towards our bodies. Working out releases endorphins which make you happier. Feeling stressed? Feeling nervous? Feeling mad? The answer to all of these questions is working out!

Of course, I'm not saying to go run a marathon. Even I haven't ever done a marathon. However, I do believe that every person should push themselves and exert themselves to workout and to set goals for themselves. It doesn't matter what type of goals you personally have-- make them and stick to them. Trust me, if you eat the right foods and work out consistently, you will achieve the goals that you truly want to achieve. Whether your goals are to lose weight or to gain muscle, you can definitely achieve those goals.

Working out has many health benefits that will make your life better. The first thing many people want to ultimately achieve in life is happiness. A study that was conducted at Penn State University concluded that people on average who worked out versus who didn't were significantly much happier.

Working out helps people to be able plan and achieve success in other vectors of their life. Working out reduces your risk of health disease. People who have suffered a stroke already are recommended to workout because it is much more effective than taking medicine.

If you are someone who suffers from lack of sleep then working out should be able to help you. Working out gives you the extra energy to complete tasks throughout your day! I'm not even joking, it really does! For me personally, I love working out in the morning because then the rest of the day I have a lot of energy.

Working out increases your strength and flexibility. It is very important to stretch after each exercise and before because it sends more blood to your muscles. Working out improves your memory. Working out increases your life span by 3.4 years!

If you already don't workout, I would highly suggest starting today! It is never too late to start improving your life. Once you make the changes that are necesary, you can then help others around you.

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.
