Moderation is Key

Hey girls! I know Thanksgiving is coming up soon, which means ALL THE FOOD!!! But that also means it’ll be super easy to get carried away with portion sizes. It’s important to keep in mind that treating yourself is important, which means don’t deny yourself of delicious turkey, potatoes, stuffing, and deserts. This is a time to relax and enjoy family, friends, and food. Don’t stress over the calories – just promise that you’ll get back on track afterwards! And always remember moderation is your friend. You can enjoy all the turkey day goodies to an extent, and save the rest for later. Plus, you can find some time to go for a walk with home friends to catch up while burning off some Thanksgiving eats! Have a happy and healthy holiday, sisters!

Out With the Boots, In With the Booties!

We all love our go-to fall shoe: tall leather boots. However, this season, mix up your look with ankle booties! Heeled or flat, bright or neutral – booties come in all styles, making them the perfect addition to any outfit! Try pairing them with a casual skirt or dress, especially on these (unseasonably) warm days! When the temperatures drop, match your booties to your favorite fall flannel to give your outfit an extra pop of color. Dressed up or dressed down, they’re perfect for your next sister date!

Art Under The Stars

Art Under The Stars

As most of us should know, one of our two impacts areas this semester isYouth and The Arts. This impact area focuses on engaging and inspiring our youth to become involved with art in many of its form, whether it be theatre, painting, music, etc. As Gamma Sig sisters, we should looking for ways around campus to support and encourage this inspiring impact area.

One great way that this impact area was focused on recently around our campus was during a yearly UD sponsored an event on the North Green on October 24th, called Art Under the Stars. This event is sponsored by Residence Life and Housing and it’s intent was to provide UD students with the opportunity to showcase artwork of their own while also experiencing and celebrating others artwork as well. The art categories this year where “most sustainable”, “UD Pride”, and “Most Useful”. Artwork varied from poetry to recycled sculptures, from acapella to canvas paintings. The event lasted from 6 to 9 and really brought a wide range of art submissions as well as attendees. Overall, everyone has a great time and many people left with a broader scope of what art can entail.

Keep your eyes out for more upcoming events around UD that support our impact areas this semester!

 

Get Moving!

It’s the time of year when it starts getting colder and darker very quickly, and our motivation to be active might start to disappear! If you make a routine for yourself to either go for a daily walk, spend a certain amount of time at the gym, or plan to be outdoorsy on the weekends, it will be easier for you to keep active as it gets colder out. It’s very easy to shrug it off and spend another week using your free time to lie on the couch, but getting active and staying active will keep you healthy during cold season, happier during stressful exam season, and take away some of the gloom of the cold, dark winter approaching. So get moving, sisters! I’ll be right there with you.

(Trick or) TREAT YOURSELF

ssssssOnce in a while you need to take a break from your busy schedule and just treat yourself. Always make time to relax and do the things you love because you are worth it and deserve it. Since Halloween is this week, watch Hocus Pocus or eat way too much candy corn (or both). To make it even better, invite some of your sisters to join in on the fun! A little (or a lot) of candy never hurt anyone! Have a  safe and happy Halloween sisters!
