May is officially National Barbecue Month. As the weather starts getting nicer, it’s the perfect time to try some new recipes to share (or not) with those at home.
Feeling stir-crazy at home? Now is the perfect time to try out some new recipes. If you’re tired of making the same old mac n’ cheese, here’s some tried-and-true recipes that can help you shake up your meals and make your stomach (and heart) happy.
Now more than ever, focusing on our well-being is essential as we adjust to our new routines away from campus. Over the past few weeks, I sought to find out what dental students around the country are doing during their social distancing when they aren’t attending class online.
During these times of uncertainty and anxiety, where we are forced to stay in and social distance ourselves, I’ve learned the value of self-reflection, living in the present and embracing the stillness. As dental students, our minds are always racing and preparing for the next big exam, practical or clinic. We seldom have a chance to soak it all in and self-reflect.
Dental school is tough. And in the moments when you’re doubting everything, remember that you can do this.
Many of us are studying for finals and looking forward to the holidays as this year starts to wind down. Over the past 11 months, we have grown astronomically, pushed ourselves to overcome obstacles, stretched our minds and (hopefully) taken a step back when we needed to remind ourselves what the bigger picture may be.
Starting something new, such as dental school, is exciting. But in the moments where you’re struggling, rediscovering your “why” can help you persevere.
