HealthyTip
Get Active Your Way!
We all know that exercise has many benefits including keeping our heart healthy, but 80% of Americans don't make exercise a priority. Trying to help break that cycle, the American Heart Association gives us 5 steps on how to start incorporating exercise into our daily routine:

1. Find an exercise that best fits your personality
2. Try to exercise around the same time each day to make it a habit
3. Build an exercise routine around your lifestyle
4. Try three 10-minute workout sessions a day to get in your 30 minutes
5. Keep going - if you miss a day, just start again tomorrow 

If there is a topic you would like to know about or a tip that you'd like to share with us, please email Jamie Randolph with your suggestions!
Announcements
Infant & Toddler Care on Campus
The D. Scott Hudgens, Jr. Early Education Center on campus offers unmatched early care and education for children ages six weeks to 8 years. There are currently a few spots open in the infant and toddler classesFor more information, please email or call 678.226.6510.

Collecting Corks
The Rad Tech program has collected over 12,000 corks, caps and foil from wine bottles for Clothes for Souls. Each is worth 2 cents so we can financially support this global non-profit institution dedicated to fighting poverty. Besides helping the charity, it also helps the earth. The corks are recycled and not put in landfills. Did you know that it takes over 1,500 gallons of water to grow the cotton required for just one pair of jeans and each American discards over 65 pounds of clothing per year? Help us by continuing to donate your corks! Drop off is in bldg. 200, room 245. 
Collecting Aluminum Can Tabs
The Future Cardiovascular Technologist Club and the Association for Radiologic Technologist are collecting can tabs. One gallon of tabs equals a one night stay in the Ronald McDonald House for a family. Together, we've already collected eight gallons, but we can do more! Help us by bringing your aluminum can tab donations to room 121, 245 or 133 in bldg. 200. Thank you!
Feel Stressed?
You are not alone! Going to school can be tough. Life can be tough. Student Life has paid for all of our students to get four free counseling sessions through the Cameron & Associates Life Balance Program. Yes - FREE! Just call 404-845-3727 or visit them on the web and they will give you three counselors close to you to pick from. You are worth the investment!
