  Applying for college, checked. Stress-reduction course, checked
A Principal Who Cracks Down on Stress

Sneak a peek into the next article about how US high school students –particularly seniors about to enter college– are suffering unhealthy amounts of stress. Among the latest measures to fight this problem are scheduled homework-free weekends, stress reduction courses, and even starting classes later so that kids can sleep more. However, while there’s plenty of effort to make students capable of coping with the current model, very little is considered about the cultural imposition of figuring out a life path as soon as possible.

  Eat well, think better
Go ask Alice

Eat locally and sustainably, try to consume organic food, if possible share your meals with friends and relatives. These are some of the principles supported by healthy-eating advocate Alice Waters, who insists on considering a whole set of parameters from where ingredients come from, to how food is treated, and what kind of policies we support with each purchase. Interestingly, this trend proposes that our attitude towards food can be significant not only as regards our own health, but also in relation with individual’s impact on other fields (ecological, political, etc). At the same time, the piece talks about the importance of having a consistent personal care strategy –and the hard work that comes with it–, and in a sense it also encourages a more integral analysis of things…even when it comes to the small everyday actions like buying tomatoes.
