How Do You Stay Healthy During the Holidays?

Heaps of turkey (or tofurkey). Stuffing. Sweet potato and marshmallow bakes. Mashed potatoes and gravy. Pie. Pie a la mode. More pie.

Oh, the temptation of sinful holiday season food. With Thanksgiving and winter break quickly approaching, many UCLA students will make their way home to indulge in gluttony way beyond going back for seconds of everything at De Neve. The TV blasting football and the comforts of home on our minds, we’ll abandon our gym and workout routines and potentially build up nice coats of “winter insulation.”

That being said, there’s always plenty of ways to try to stay healthy with diet and exercise. Mojo asked some students around campus for tips on how to stay healthy during the holidays. Here’s what we found: (more…)

#tbt: ’90s Workout Playlist

If you’re getting a bit tired of your current gym playlist (or your workout for the day just isn’t quite “Wrecking Ball” status), why not throwback to some older tunes? Whether it’s the title or the chorus that jogs our memories, all of us who grew up during the ’90s are pretty much guaranteed to know every one of these songs. And let’s be real, whenever we hear “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake at the gym, it’s hard not to run straight home, get out our Walkman players and listen to our old *NSYNC “No Strings Attached” CDs … unless that’s just me.

Nevertheless, we’ve compiled some tunes that will get your heart racing during a trip to the gym or a nostalgic look back through your elementary school yearbooks. Happy Throwback Thursday, UCLA.

What would you include on your ’90s playlist? Comment below or tweet us @dbmojo.

But if you’re a procrastinator, you might find a sudden interest in everything except what you need to do.

One of the leading modes of procrastination is Netflix – where you can mooch off of your parents’ account and waste the day away living vicariously through a zombie slayer or a damsel in distress. Fun as it may seem to ignore your responsibilities and engross yourself in a scripted world, it does come with some drawbacks. Here are a few reasons why college students and Netflix have a love/hate relationship.
