Sleep Your Way to Better Health!

It seems like the easiest and obvious way to improve you health in the new year is by making sure you get your sleep. The kind of sleep that leaves you ready to conquer the day. When you can go all day with no naps. However, I can’t remember the number of times I have stared at my ceiling late at night trying to figure out why I can’t sleep. Who else is with me? So maybe it is the great first step toward having a healthier in a new year.

Perc Coffeehouse

I am always a fan of cute coffeehouses. I especially love local business that carry my addiction. (Not that Starbucks wouldn’t do in a pinch) I had seen people raving about this coffeehouse in Old Town Lewisville, Texas. It is right off of Main Street. It is packed with vintage signs and comfy chairs. The back patio is beyond cute. If you need a new paradise, then I suggest trying this place! It is called Perc Coffeehouse. (And I haven’t even talked about the drinks yet!)

World Literature: Discovering The World of Books

Literature is  the stories created or told by authors. The authors bring the readers into their world and ask us questions about our existence that we would otherwise would not ask. They create beloved characters that became icons. So it comes as no surprise to me that for my philosophy credit at The University of Texas at Dallas, I was able to take Introduction to World Literature. 

God Needs No Passport: Religion and Globalization

Spirituality is consider a corner stone of humanity. How we express that spirituality may fall under the organized categories of religion. As the borders between each country and culture blur, how the world thinks of religion has changed with it. The world has become fractured along the lines of our difference but we come together over our similarities. Peggy Levitt explores this in her book, “God Needs No Passport”.

The program is one of a kind. From the friendships you create to the empowering speakers that you hear. As someone who attended for two years, I can say that the results have been extraordinary. I have been able to achieve things such as securing an internship and graduating top of my class. There’s a new confidence and hope for the future that has been instilled me that I owe a lot of credit to the program for. It’s always an incredible experience coming back

Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Doing More Than Policy Action

October is domestic violence awareness month. Recently the podcast at my university, PEP Talk, covered a local organization that assist those that are affected by domestic violence. They talked about how in the year 1994 that efforts were made to help prevent violence against women. Funding was made available and nonprofits were able to expand their operations. However, many still face the crisis of domestic violence. Examples of this crisis can be found in the Me Too movement that spread across the world.
