Clear Your Mind

Our minds can take a beating in the winter. Scientists have linked vitamin D, what we lack in the winter, as something that helps promote brain function.

Soak up the sunshine to help find clarity!

For those in school, spring brings about conversations on what you’ll be doing with your summer and rest of the year. If you’re graduating, it can be a stressful time. Below are a few ways to clear your mind:
Write a Goal List

Having goals and writing them down can inspire you to do the work to help you keep on track. Think of the big over-arching questions such as 'What can I see myself doing in 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years'. 
Take Up Meditation

Our schedules are often jam packed throughout the week. Sometimes we don’t realize the toll that it takes on our body and mind. To clear your mind and help with focus, you may want to try meditation. Meditation classes are offered under instructional programs in DBAC. The next course will start on May 12th. If you can't make this one, hit up YouTube!

·         Tidy Your Files

All those different files can start to take over your computer. Use spring as a time to go through them, delete what you don’t need, and organize your work. Organizing things by year is a great first step to see things on a macro level. From there, add folders accordingly and stick to your organization scheme!

·         Back Up Your Work

While sometimes computers can be our best friends, they can also become our worst enemies. If you haven’t experienced some sort of dramatic computer saga, consider yourself lucky. Try to keep it that way by backing up all the files you need to keep for the future. You can use something like Dropbox or purchase an external hard-drive.
