Many of you are either college students, or parents of students. Did you know that college can be one of the most stressful and unhealthy periods in life?
This is a time when many of us create habits – many not so healthy – that stick with us for a lifetime, plaguing our adult years with poor habits, stress and illness.
How many of us actually take into serious consideration the choices that will be made when for the first time ever a college student is making their own food choices? Fast food, highly processed foods, sugary drinks, alcohol combine with long hours, lack of proper hydration and a more sedentary lifestyle, all have an impact. Partying until all hours doesn’t count as exercise. The average freshman gains 15 pounds.
Another factor that may play a part in all this is that many teens are going from fairly small high schools with several hundred to a few thousand students, to universities with over 10,000 students. This can be a challenge for anyone, but for any student who is sensitive to the energy and stress of others, this can be overwhelming, to say the least.
Little attention is given to teaching coping techniques or even awareness of this as an issue. This is where the BioElectric Shield can be of help. The Shield helps deflect the stress, anxiety and fear of the other students and teachers and rebalances the entire energy field. Many find they are less stressed and more focused, able to stay on-task more easily and make better decisions.
