I’ve been looking forward to this issue for quite some time. Health and wellness is something I’m extremely interested in — so interested, I’m planning on going to graduate school in public health. But I digress.
This issue focuses on the human body, spirit and mind. We at Wolf Magazine are not limiting ourselves to various exercises and diets, though we do feature both — dorm room exercises (page 8) and eating locally and organically (page 22). On a personal level, we’ve taken a look at natural hair in the black community (page 20). Meditation is a form of stress relief many can attest to (page 24). And this time, instead of featuring an opinion columnist, we’ve decided to include an original narrative on a runner’s experience studying abroad in Istanbul (page 30).
College is definitely a time when students can wear their bodies out. Alcohol, drugs, stress or a combination of the above are at an all-time high for some of us. So, I challenge each one of you to change something about your lifestyle for the better, even if it’s small. Take the stairs instead of the elevator one day each week. Stretch every morning or evening. Laugh more often. Eat fruits and vegetables more often. Smoke one less cigarette, drink one less beer, meditate, reflect.
After this issue, we have two more inserts in The Maroon — a housing guide in March and a finals guide in April. Let us know if you want to see anything in particular in our final issues. Talk to us through Facebook, Twitter or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time,
