Siblings often come with pressure to perform well, which can be both a source of both eustress and destress. Accor...

So, lately in these blogs I’ve been telling you ideas on what to do for workouts or places to make it fun, but sometimes at least for me it isn’t fun. Lately I’ve been having trouble working out, or at least go up in weight. Overall, I am a short and tiny person so my body can get overly...

When you workout, you have to make it fun for yourself, otherwise you are not gonna want to keep up with it all the time. I have done some fun things that have made me sorer after doing it. Over summer I went to the city museum downtown, if you don’t know what it is it’s a whole building that...

7 a.m. Your alarms beeps, forcing you to get up out of your warm, comfy bed sheets and get ready for the thing we all dread to even think about: the ACT.

Some of you may know this, but I am in the introduction weight training class at our school and it's a 45 min class usually, if I'm lucky. Whenever I go to the gym on my own, working out can last 2-3 hours sometimes. I would be doing upper body and then leg day, every other day. I somehow have to make...

A couple weeks ago I made the decision to start a no soda or coffee diet. I decided to do this because I wanted to be more energized without caffeine and to be more healthy, obviously.

Stay fit. This involves small diets one can do, workouts you can do, fun activities and so much more. Being active is tough, I am not gonna sugar coat that one bit.

The process. I refer to it - it being finding self-acceptance and practicing self-love - as a process because that is how I can best describe it.

For most players, their pre-game can affect the way they perform in a game. I am one of those players. For soccer, we always play a CD that the captains made for all the home games. My teammates and I stayed up for days to cut and edit the music to ensure we would have it done for our home opener. Surprisingly,...
