Get your Vitamin D!

Most of our Vitamin D comes from the sun; but the diminished sun can cause fatigue, muscle pain, bone and back pain, and even depression. An easy fix can be participating in fun outdoor activities this winter. This will boost your immune system, mood, and ensure a healthy Winter!

Well-Being Corner: Study Prep

The best study prep is to prepare to study. Set your study goals and make a plan to stick to, but remember to take breaks. The brain is like a muscle in the sense you can work it until it needs a break to recover from all that knowledge!
