Healthy Eating Tips for Stressed University Students

One of the first New Year’s resolutions that students abandon is the promise of healthy eating.  Indeed, as January progresses, and exams, essays, labs, and assignments mount, student vows to stick to whole foods and nourishing beverages are dismissed.  It is well-established that stress is a primary trigger for overnourishment.  Alternatively dubbed ‘stress eating’ or ‘emotional eating,’ students drift from eating salads to pizza, and toss the protein shake in favor of energy drinks.   University cafeteria and food services staff can certainly testify to this phenomenon. Due to the amount of stress faced at university, students are more likely to snack, binge eat, eat late into the night, and generally overeat.  Many students are so overstretched, divided between work, class, study, and extracurricular activity, that they fail to eat much throughout the day, depleting their reserves of stored energy, resulting in intense late-night cravings.  When the body is thus depleted, it sends signals for high-calorie replenishment, which the student meets through sugary and fatty foods.  These are precisely the kinds of foods that do not serve the intense intellectual requirements of university studies.

The following recommendations will help students maintain the cognitive functioning and energy levels required in higher learning.  First, the student should focus on a breakfast high in protein and fiber.  Every two- to three hours thereafter, protein should be consumed, and coupled with healthy fats and fiber.  High-fat and high-sugar meals should be avoided, since they both result in sluggishness by shuttling blood to the digestive organs, and spiking insulin levels, respectively.

Students should also attack the stress which triggers over-nourishing.  By adopting specific stress-reduction strategies, students can easily learn that stress can be reduced by means other than overeating.  The first, and most pragmatic, method is simply to remove ‘comfort’ foods high in fat and sugar from the home.   Next, the student should strive to meditate daily.  Eating may, in itself, be meditation, when the student focuses entirely on the food consumed, eating slowly, and reflecting on its nourishing power.  Finally, the student should also exercise daily, perhaps focusing on a physical activity that is also meditative in nature, such as yoga.

Dating Advice for University Students

Whether it be Channing Tatum’s split from Jenna Dewan, Jennifer Aniston leaving Justin Theroux, or Johnny Depp dumping Amber Heard, stars always seem to be breaking up.  But celebrities aren’t the only ones who have trouble maintaining relationships in today’s faced-past society of instant gratification.  Longevity in relationships is especially fragile in environments susceptible to stress and scrutiny.  This is why celebrities, high-powered executives, police officers, and students are particularly prone to breakup.  Campus dating, however, is further imperilled by the simple fact that both parties are necessarily novices, and are therefore unpractised in handling the vicissitudes entailed in dating and partnership.  The fragility of a campus relationship need not foretell its doom, however.   The following useful tips can help university students navigate new, intimate terrain while mitigating risk of falling into the chasm of freshman heartbreak.

Being young, the following tip might be difficult, yet it is foundational to a healthy relationship:  first find yourself, and then be yourself.  Do not waste time on wondering what others might want you to be.  It is only when you are genuine that you can have a real and enduring relationship with another.  Second, never write someone off quickly.  Take time to get to know them, as friends first. Without pressure, you will get to know someone better and see clearly where they fit in your life.  Next, always begin gradually.  Do not jump into bed with someone, no matter how much they beckon your hormones.  Such indiscretion is unlikely to provide the solid base on which a fulfilling relationship can be built.  Also, be very careful not to conform to others. They may well be hooking up; or, alternatively, they may also be shaming others for doing so.  Never compare your life to others.  Always seek to be genuine and follow your own path.  This last tip hearkens back to the first, for good reason: this is the ultimate commandment for student dating. It is voiced best by Shakespeare’s Polonius: ‘To your own self be true.’

 

Borders and Barriers: Over the Essay Wall

 

Many Presidents have campaigned on platforms verging on the absurd; however, no American President has made such an infamous promise as Trump, whose border wall now looms much larger over public debate than it does the Mexican-American divide.  In 2016, Trump demanded Mexico pay for the barrier.  In 2019, this ridiculous notion has been abandoned by Trump, in favor of coercing budgetary concessions from the Democrats through government shutdown.  Despite having asserted that the wall solution is ‘medieval’ in character, Trump is now compelled to follow through on his preposterous plan to halt immigration at the southern border.  Thus deeply entrenched by his original, 2016 commitment, any solution falling short of a full wall will be deemed a severe political setback for an already beleaguered Donald Trump.

Since few people make such rash promises as Trump has in committing to the U.S.-Mexico barrier, most of us have difficulty relating to having to deliver on something silly.  While we can’t relate to Trump’s specific predicament, we can, however, relate to his general problem:  all of us have had to seek outside help when we find ourselves unable to fulfil a commitment. This is especially true of students who, experiencing unforeseen crises in health, finances, employment, or other areas, cannot meet a pending deadline.  Many university professors are unsympathetic to students in these circumstances, refusing extensions when faced with evidence of hospitalization or bereavement.

Unemployed Professors prides itself on helping students who, victimized by tragic circumstance, find themselves unable to meet the unreasonable demands of their professors.  Providing custom-written essays, crafted by experienced writers holding graduate degrees, Unemployed Professors has an extensive legacy of excellence, built on the satisfaction of its clients.  It is no wonder that once students find Unemployed Professors, they tend to become repeat customers, find the quality far surpasses that of the competition.

Overcoming Winter Lethargy

Winter is in full force, and overcoming the bitter doldrums associated with this frigid season is proving to be a constant battle. Low energy, sickness, and stationary lifestyles are rampant in winter, and sometimes this combination can add stress to an already hectic life. If you find that winter sometimes sucks all the energy out of you, have no fear; there are steps you can take to not only make your winter more productive, but more enjoyable as well.banner728X90-2

  1. Get a hobby: Winter is the perfect time to explore activities that may have interested you in the past, but you’ve never had the time to learn. With the cold temperatures and short days, this season is a wonderful time to explore hobbies like knitting, painting, winter sports, or even just pick up a book by a new author you’ve been curious about. Boredom often creates a cycle of complacency, which can result in far too many unproductive hours in front of the TV or computer. Pick up a new hobby today, and your days exploring a creative new path will be all the more rewarding.
  2. Be active: Winter’s cold and short days lend themselves to excuses for inactivity; it’s either too cold, too dark, or any other variation of weather blaming, which results in a markedly lower activity rate for many people. Fortunately, there’s a plethora of fantastic winter sports and activities, both outdoor and indoor, that are not only fun, but improve your health. Getting adequate exercise improves all aspects of health, and can certainly offset the sedentary lifestyle that often emerges in winter. There are many ways to incorporate physical activity into your day during the winter, including: joining a gym, doing online workouts at home, and outdoor activities like hiking and cross-country skiing. Remember, it’s especially important in the winter to be prepared for any outdoor activity, so don’t forget to keep hydrated and wear appropriate clothing. Being physically active in the winter is an excellent way to start on that summer beach-body, and to overcome the winter stagnation with progress and improved health.
  3. Improve your surroundings: The characteristics of winter often lead to depleted energy levels, which can leave your motivation to do non-necessary activities waning. One thing that suffers is housework: often the last thing you want to do when coming in from the cold is deep clean the house and fold five loads of laundry. Since you’ll be spending more time indoors during the winter, it’s important to make your home a place you enjoy. Spend some extra time cleaning, or do some decorating, you’ll find that your organization and sense of peace will improve. This is especially true of students, who often have to juggle several classes and dozens of assignments, and improving their living area is ignored. Websites like Unemployed Professors can help with that by taking on some of those assignments and projects, freeing up some of your time to do the things in this list. A healthy and happy winter is an excellent start to the New Year, and it is never too early, or late, to make is an amazing season for you.

Grades in college: Do they matter?

banner1tempLots of people wonder if striving for excellent grades in college affects the rest of their life at all. After all, depending on whom you ask, “B’s (Or C’s, or D’s) get degrees.” However, did you know that a low GPA can also affect your lifetime earnings? A 2014 study of pay data and college GPA’s found dramatic differences among different GPA’s. For investment banking professionals three years into their career, a 2.8 or lower GPA correlated with an average salary of $65,000 USD. Those with a GPA of 2.9 to 3.1 earned an average of $77,700. Meanwhile, those with A grades earned an average of $115,700. Although this study relied on self-reported data and on a fairly specific career, it highlights the importance of a good GPA in earning a good salary.

Although there’s scant data, GPA can also impact hiring, especially for entry-level jobs. Imagine you’re working in human resources management and have two nearly identically qualified job applicants: Both have the same degree from the same school, similarly good references, excellent cover letters and resumes (Those are things Unemployed Professors can help you with, by the way!), and both interviewed well. The only difference? One applicant has a GPA in the 2.8 to 3.1 range, and the other boasts of a GPA in the 3.2 to 3.8 range. Which do you think they will hire? That’s a rhetorical question. The same situation applies to graduate school applications as well. A great GPA won’t necessarily get you in the door to your dream job or into grad school, but a mediocre one can be used to rule you out.

Grades matter. Even if you get nothing out of a make-work, time-wasting class other than the credits on your transcript, unfortunately the grade you earn has an undue impact on your future. Yeah, nobody will carve your GPA on your tombstone, but the grades you get have meaning. When you’re stuck with an impossible-to-please pedant of a professor, what can you do to maximize your chances of success? Obviously, you can study 24/7 – but who has time for that with other classes, jobs, and personal obligations? That’s why Unemployed Professors exists. We’re your personal tutors, with advanced degrees in everything you can imagine – and experience writing in even more. Unlike the competition, we’re the real deal, with vetted, verified academic credentials and teaching experience.  If you’re worried about your GPA and ready to invest in your future, let Unemployed Professors help.

Powerball vs. a college degree: Which is more likely to make you a millionaire?

imagesK2RQ71JL            If a college degree costs a fortune and sometimes has a questionable ROI, you might be tempted to forego school and play the lottery instead. Last week, the American Powerball lottery hit $440 million, which is enough to pay for four years of full tuition and room and board at Harvard for approximately 6,981 people. With numbers like that, one might wonder whether playing the lottery is a safer bet, as it were, than going to college. This past August, Investopedia crunched the numbers, comparing long-term investing to playing the lottery. Investopedia reported that an average, non college-educated person would spend, on average $250 a year on the lottery. Yet if that same person were to just invest the same amount of money in an IRA, and if historical stock market trends continued, that same person would have more than $30,000 USD. Not bad, right?

While there’s nothing wrong with the occasional “idiot tax” (as my dad was fond of calling lottery tickets) and the ensuing daydreams that can happen when you’re holding a destined-to-lose lottery ticket, it’s clear that informed financial choices win out, time after time. And one of the best ways to ensure that you are in a position to make informed financial choices is to get a college education. Despite bad press and scorn for those who major in esoteric subjects like the consistently beleaguered Women’s Studies, college degrees almost always increase lifetime earnings (that is, how much money someone earns over the course of their lives), usually by about one million dollars compared to those without such degrees. Some counter that it is barely worth it given the cost of college, but until the overall cost of four years in college exceeds a million dollars, it is still a positive return on your investment.

College degrees, no matter what the subject, expose you to a network of people. Even those much-despised art or whatever degrees give you valuable skills in research and writing, which will help in virtually all careers. With a degree and the hard work it entails, you are showing potential employers you can stick with a tough commitment and see it through. Sure, nobody can predict the future: Maybe an enormous asteroid will wipe out the entire earth tomorrow (and perhaps we would have known about it if you had majored in astronomy. THANKS!), but one of the best things you can do for yourself is to earn a degree (And to do so ideally on time, with good grades, and with minimal debt). Keep your eye on the prize – and the prize is not a winning lotto ticket. Completing the degree is important, and you should make it your absolute highest priority. Sometimes that might mean making a tough choice between socializing and working – or outsourcing and socializing.

Unemployed Professors understands, and is here to help you increase the odds that your investment will pay off! Post your college project today and see how we can get you closer to that credential.

Should College Education be Free?

banner3-300X250One of the most expensive things most people will ever pay for is a college education. Gone are the days when people could live comfortably with a high school education, and the competition for jobs is fierce. Careers are requiring more advanced degrees than ever before, and tuition rates are higher than they have ever been. Most people are not blessed with families who are able to pay for an entire college degree, which puts students in a stressful situation. Astronomical student loans are burdening people, making it hard to build a comfortable life after the completion of a degree. People today lead incredibly stressful lives, and college tuition just piles on to the sources of anxiety. This is why college education should be free. It would allow for everyone to achieve the level of education they want, which can only benefit society. Having a society filled with highly educated people can help progress, as education can be seen as an overwhelmingly beneficial thing. It can broaden not only academic knowledge, but encourage diversity and social tolerance, as more people could experience different interactions. All fields will benefit, as students will be given the resources they need to reach their full potential by facilitating access to creativity, communication, and information.  Because of high tuition rates, fewer students come from low-income families, and the economic gap becomes wider. Student loan debt is proving overwhelming for a large portion of the population, burdening degree holders.

Although universal free education is an ideal, making education more affordable could also be a good way to unburden society in a lot of ways. Institutionalized changes as momentous as this will have a lasting effect on society, and often are done in degrees. The burden it would have on the government is hard to predict, but long term it would have a clear benefit on society. This benefit, in turn, would manifest as general progress in all facets of society. Also, this type of change can inspire progress with other areas, including medicine. Everyone has the right to education; it is the only way to continue advancement and eradicate ignorance. There are some areas who have instituted a free community college recently, and so far, there’s been a high demand of faculty to work in these colleges. Free college not only benefits students, but it provides jobs for educators. Although initial costs may seem daunting, the overall economic benefit of free college education will be positive. In addition to the economy, free education will have a beneficial psychological effect on the population. Money is a highly stressful part of life for many people, and student loans provide their fair share of anxiety for a large portion of the population. If education were free, people would be less stressed, and stress has a direct correlation to health issues and general lower quality of life. Basically, if college were free, society would be smarter, richer, happier, and healthier. The pros far outweigh any cons, and making education free should be one of society’s priorities.

How to Write a Thesis/Dissertation Introduction

banner728X90-2

For some Master’s degree programs, and all Ph. D. programs, require some type of thesis or dissertation for completion. This is one of the most important steps in attaining a higher-level degree, and it requires significant time and research to complete. A thesis must investigate something concerning your field, and demonstrate expansive research. Then, these works must be defended in front of an examining committee. This is generally a time of high stress for students, and writing the introduction is often the hardest part. The first choice you will be faced with it picking a subject. When thinking about what you want to write, make sure it’s something that interests you, but that you can research with relative ease. You’re going to be with this subject for a long time, and it really helps if you genuinely enjoy the topic.

First of all, relax. Writing a thesis is a long and involved process, but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Approach your thesis confidently, as this is the culmination of your education thus far, and you are well-versed in your area of study. If you’re having difficulty choosing a topic, there are many steps you can take to facilitate this process. Firstly, do your research. If you don’t have a topic picked, keep abreast of past and current publications regarding your area of study. This will not only help you have a well-rounded wealth of information, but it can help to inspire a great idea of your own. Additionally, take advantage of the resources provided you. Keep an open dialogue with the members of your thesis committee, as they can help lead you to your topic. These are the people who will be overseeing your progress, and they want to see you succeed; do not hesitate in picking their brains when writing your thesis introduction, that’s what they’re there for.

Once you have your topic and are ready to write, introduce the topic in a way that gets the reader’s attention. This will set the tone for the rest of the work, and will be appreciated by those both reading and listening to your argument. A working title should also be created, and a hypothesis or research question should be formulated. This will be the basis of your thesis, and all research will be made to support your main argument. Then you need to create a description of the argument you will be making, and the description of the type of research will be used. It’s important to remember to proofread and edit every step of the way, and try to get others to read your introduction and provide constructive criticism. When writing a thesis introduction, it is also highly recommended to have an outline for the thesis; this will help you stay focused and organized. Your introduction will set the tone to the rest of your thesis or dissertation, which is the crowning achievement of your education and this step will help you attain your goal of higher education.

How to Stay Happy in the Cold Season

AsianBlogFall is almost upon us, and with that comes the shortening of days and frigidity in the air. Gone are those long, hot, and sunny summer days, and people are often left depressed in its wake. There is a name for the blues some people experience in the colder months; seasonal affective disorder (SAD). When left unchecked, it can lead to serious depression and a whole host of issues, so it’s best to be avoided. Here are four tips to beat SAD, and to make fall and winter just as fun and exciting as summer:

  1. Vitamin D: this vitamin is vital in maintaining good mood, and it’s most readily available through the sun. Long, dark days make it harder to get sunshine, so make sure you go outside for at least ten minutes a day in the sun. If not possible, pop a Vitamin D supplement, your mood will thank you.
  2. Go on vacation; having something to look forward to does wonders for the mood, and a change of scenery and pace can defeat the cold season doldrums. Plan a trip, it doesn’t have to be extravagant or exotic, and see how your perspective changes.
  3. Exercise: activity of all forms, especially cardio, has been proven to boost endorphin production, a hormone responsible for good mood. Working out outside can provide the double whammy of activity and sunshine, but the gym is an excellent resource when it gets ugly out there.
  4. Pamper yourself; with the nasty weather, short days, and holidays of the colder months, people often neglect themselves. It’s important to take care of yourself on a personal level, be it massage, a pedicure, or even just a hot bath. Make sure this fall and winter you don’t forget about yourself, and if a schoolwork-overload is preventing you from some pampering, visit Unemployed Professors, who specialize in your well-being.
