Do you ever have a hard time making up your mind? For important decisions, it’s common to spend a lot of time weighing all your options to find you still don’t know what to do! The next time you’re faced with a tough decision, try the following exercise: Close your eyes. Imagine the outcome of making Choice A. How does your stomach feel? Are your muscles tense or relaxed? Now, imagine the outcome of Choice B and repeat. Chances are, the choice that makes you feel less anxious and more relaxed is the right one for you!
It's that time of the year again. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and—possibly best of all—many students can some rest and relaxation during Spring Break!

We can't wait to laugh with you!

Q: I’m trying to grow my hair out, but it’s taking so long! How fast does my hair actually grow? A: Don’t you wish you could just snap your fingers and instantly change the length of your hair? So do we! The bad news is that’s not an option, and growing hair out can take a long time, especially depending on how long you want your locks. On average, hair grows about half an inch each month, or around six inches total per year. This varies in every person, though, so yours could be faster or slower! Help speed up the process by getting a trim every 6-8 weeks to get rid of dead ends. We know it sounds like cutting your hair would only slow things down, but getting rid of dead, split ends will keep your hair healthy…and healthy hair grows quicker! We promise it will help pick up the pace!
Have you ever noticed that you can spot a confident person from across the room? You don’t even have to speak to them to know they feel good about themselves! A confident person:
  • Holds her head high
  • Stands up tall with her shoulders back
  • Looks people in the eye
Even when you don’t feel confident, practicing confident body language will help you make a good impression. You might even find that you feel more confident, too! What makes you feel confident?
