The Importance of Emotional Health and Mental Stability

By Zaneta Chuniq Inpower

Emotional health is an aspect of mental health that encompasses stress management, depression and other mental/emotional factors that can slow you down or damage your overall health. Every day, many of us deal with babies, co-workers, baby’s mama’s/daddy’s, husband/wife, in-laws, nosy neighbors, roommates and more.

A Letter to my Freshman Self

By Jakita M. Criswell

All of those in favor of dragging themselves out of bed for long hours of blah, about God knows what, say ‘I’! Yeah, that’s what I figured.  Really, who’s really ready to give up long, hot summer days at the beach and just playing around with friends to sit in a classroom?  Almost no one.

College is completely different and how you manage that “freedom” makes all the difference in being a successful college student. Therefore, I conjured up a letter that I would leave for myself, if I could go back in time and be a freshman again.  Enjoy!
