I know I need to exercise more often, but I'm very good at making excuses to skip my sessions. In the Western world, life is always busy and many of us struggle to fit even 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week into our schedules. I had even prioritized getting fit as part of my overall goal for improved health and well-being this year, but admittedly, I've veered off track. My sore arms from playing frisbee on the weekend confirm that I've got to do something more to improve my overall physical well-being.
Although we currently renters and don’t yet own our home, we like to make the best of our living space.

Everyone who has completed high school has taken the ‘What learning style am I?’ quiz. Generally, there are four types – Visual, Auditory, Read-Write and Kinesthetic. Most of us don’t think much of it at that time, but it is extremely important to understand your learning style because much of your successes or failures can be related to how you interpret and understand the world around you. And knowing your preferred learning style not only helps you in school, but in life, work and personal relationships – a lot of things are linked to how you perceive and understand information.

I would say the majority of us have [often more than once] been told the following: cherish your youth and value this time in your life – it will go by fast. And once you graduate and enter the adult working world, you start to think that person knew what they were talking about. Once you move out and start paying your own bills, it dawns on you that life a student was definitely simpler with less financial responsibility (for the majority of students that is)… but certainly not as rewarding as adulthood.
