"I have met a couple guys from Tinder in the past year. On our first date I can see they are physically attracted to me judging by their body language (hand holding, hugging, tap of hand, and even attempted kissing) but It never leads to a second date and a relationship and I suspect is my lack of personality. What do you advise in that case? How can I work on becoming a more fun person to talk to/be around? or should I just accept myself for who I am and wait for the right guy who will appreciate me for who I am and not just for my looks?"

"I've been having a really rough semester mentally, financially, socially...you name it. My dad calls me about once a week to check-in and I really don't know how to tell him Im not doing ok. I know he'd be worried about me and everyone expects me to be having such a great time away at school. Any advice on how to handle this? Is it ok to lie to him?"

They’re here before we know it; midterms are upon us. For many students, this means prioritizing studying over healthy habits. But exams don’t have to make us set our health aside. There are healthy habits that everyone can pick that not only contribute to overall health but may also improve your brain power while studying.

These tips are twofold: they contribute to your health and could help improve your cognition.
