May is For Mental Health!

   As we navigate through the ups and downs of this pandemic, it is really important to make sure that we take care of ourselves, not only physically, but mentally as well.  We can do this by participating in yoga and meditation exercises.  It can also be as simple as getting together with friends and going for walks outside in the sunshine, treating yourself to a massage or going to the spa with some friends to get your hair and nails done.  You can play games of basketball outside or play horseshoes with some friends on campus.  We also have a disc golf course on campus for students.  This is a great opportunity for friends to get together while still keeping distance.  

     I will be teaching a yoga session on Friday, April 30, at 2, either outside near the soccer field or in the MPR in the Campus Center if it is raining.  Come join me to relax before you enter into final exam week.    

     The Riverside Farmer’s Market will start the beginning of June on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.  This is such a wonderful market to get fresh vegetables, eggs and meats from local farmers.  Now is the time to get those grills ready to use all summer.  Here is a great summertime grilling idea!  


Chicken Kabobs:

You will need chicken breasts, green peppers, red peppers, mushrooms, onions, cherry tomatoes and whatever you like for a marinade.  I like teriyaki or sweet Thai chili sauce.  Cut up all your vegetables, and then cut your chicken and let it marinate for a couple of hours.  Then put on skewers and season with salt and pepper and cook them on your grill.  This is the perfect low calorie meal.
