ResaRelaxation

As the last two weeks of the class have begun their count down, many of us have started prepping for the battle of finals, paper, group projects, evaluations, and presentations that lay ahead of us. This might include buying as much K-cup coffees and monsters that your budget can allow, completely annihilating your sleep cycle, officially moving into the library, or dawning the same sweatpants and T-shirt that you have been living in for the next week and a half. However you plan to tackle your finals week, besides worrying about how sound your grades for your classes will be, remember to make sure your mind is sound too.

Mental Awareness is one of our two impact areas this semester and it is bringing attention to the fact that we have to bring to light mental health problems and do our best to keep safe sound minds within our community. This, ladies, includes finals week. Stressing yourself to tears is not a good sign. Pulling all nighters in expectations that your grade is directly correlated with how much time you put in studying, is unfortunately a sad myth. You need to make some time in your day to allow your brain to rest and retain what is being thrown at it.

For all of you lovely sisters that are still in Resident Halls, RSA (Resident Student Association) is hosting three events this week. There will be puppies on Monday, a pancake social on Tuesday and massages on Wednesday! ūüôā

Enjoy and good luck on finals ladies!Relaxation

Healthy Relationships Are Important, Too!

Hello again lovely sisters! This week’s healthy living tip is all about relationships. Not just romantic relationships, but all the relationships we¬†have in ¬†our lives, with parents, loved ones, friends, professors, ANYONE we interact with. It’s important to take time to be thankful and recognize all the great support that we get from our friends and family! Take a second to tell these important people that you appreciate having them in your life, and maybe treat them to a little something special. By treating these people with positivity and kindness, you will feel happier and more secure in your relationships! Spread the kindness and Gamma Love!

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!

Happy November Beta Gamma!

November is finally here! Although that means Thanksgiving is around the corner and that it is socially acceptable to start listening to Christmas music, this is a very busy time of year! Keep yourself motivated throughout the week! Be sure to¬†keep track of all of your assignments and deadlines in a planner, go to the gym to relieve stress, and study hard! After you push through these next few weeks,¬†you’ll be able to treat yourself to a yummy Thanksgiving dinner and a week off from school. You got this!G7UWo

 

 

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.
