A Trip All Our Own

The Start of Summer.

It seems as though Memorial Day weekend was the perfect chance for people to get their grills warmed up for the next three months of sun and happy times.

Summer festivities have always involved ice cream, grilling and never ending trips to the shore. But what happens when you find yourself, dare I say it, sick of the usual? Take a trip out of the country, of course! Since flying first class to places like France, or Istanbul is out of the question I opted for the next best thing, flying coach in a wndow seat to Toronto!

In's and Out's of Stress


We are all humans. Thus, we are faced with stressful situations day to day. This kind of stress can ruin a whole day if not dealt with properly. Being a college student, I experience times of stress on a regular basis, the kind that makes me want to rip my hair out! But I do try and practice some strategies that help minimize its affects. 

My Stress Remedies

Prior to spring break, I was faced with midterms and papers that seemed I’d never be able to tackle. The amount of stress I was experiencing was normal for a college student balancing school and work, but I had enough. Usually when I experience an overwhelming amount of stress I try and sort through my daily activities and find that they are all small stuff. You know that saying, “don’t sweat the small stuff”? That is a mantra that everybody should live by. We are all faced with feeling like there aren’t enough hours in the day, or that what is demanded from us is unrealistic. But, the key is realizing that you are in control of your life is the foundation of managing stress.

To Gym or Not to Gym

Timing is Everything

We’ve all done it- procrastinated hitting the gym, saying we will simply “get to it later. “ Or, the ever so popular excuse that we, “don’t have time.”  Going to the gym can be a hassle, yes, but its benefits are life-changing if maintained along with a proper diet. Now, I am no doctor or personal trainer, but I do know that with even moderate exercise (it doesn’t have to be at a gym!) and a few tweaks of an unhealthy diet, the results can make a huge difference. With mothers especially, I am aware that time is precious, and most of it is devoted to the family (kudos to you moms!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze in time for yourself and your health!
