it's easy being green smoothie | Journey for JessiHello beautiful souls.

healthy and smart--Journey for JessiCollege is back in full swing–meaning, that it is more difficult to keep up my healthy intentions when I have other things like studying, group projects, and club meetings to focus on.  I admit, lately my health and fitness has been put on the back burner, but I am back in action.  Here are some things I have learned over the years about staying healthy, both mentally and physically, in college without sacrificing my studies.
