Berry salad. Yum! 
So I read this wonderful article that discussed how to become healthier. I’ve never had such a struggle with my health, but now more than ever I need to take control. I could easily blame the stress of going to college, having my life change and what not, but I just need to look past the complications and get down to the point. I need to improve. Goals for this week: 
-drink 8+ glasses of water daily
-exercise 4 days 
-repractice yoga!
-set 5 min a day to meditating
-begin my vitamin intake
-sleep 8+ hours a night


if you ever feel stressed or anxious, breathe in for 4 seconds, keep it in for 8 seconds, and exhale for 7 seconds. its amazing what breathing can do for you, and you can do it in a room full of people and nobody will know
