Transcript: Thank You! August Garner HSC 1100 Fishing Fishing is the number one stress management technique that works for me the most. Since I was young, I have always enjoyed fishing. When I get stressed or overwhelmed, I always pack up my fishing rods and tackle, and head out to a body of water to fish. Fishing helps me to clear my head and think about what is going on in my life. Fishing How To: Fish How To: Fish First, decide the location where you want to fish. Gather all supplies: Fishing rod & reel, tackle, bait, fishing line, etc. When you get prepared to go, get to the location where body of water is and do whatever you may need to do, to get the rod & reel ready to cast. I personally like to throw the fish back rather than keeping them. Spending Time with my Family When I am with my family, I don't feel stressed or alone. I know that they will always be there for me. When we all spend time together, we make sure to make memories. I enjoy all of the quality time I am able to share with my family that I love dearly. Spending Time with my Family How To: Enjoy Time With Family How To: Enjoy Time with Family When you spend time with your family, it is always best to have no distractions from family time. Try to relax and make as many memories as possible. Capture a few pictures, so you have something to look at and remember the moments. Try to do fun things together. For example: play games, go to the beach, watch a movie, cook, etc. Hiking Hiking helps me to relieve stress by exercising and staying active. I am also able to see the true beauty of nature, which makes me appreciate where I live more. Hiking How To: Hike How To: Hike First, make sure you have everything you need to be prepared for hiking. For example: water, appropiate clothing & shoes, first-aid kit, camera. Pick the location of where you are going. Always notify someone of where you are going, in case of an emergency. Head to the location. Become familiar with the trail. Enjoy the nature. Capture a few pictures of the trails and or animals that you might see. Listening to Country Music Listening to Music Music helps me tremendously when I am feeling overwhelmed with thoughts going through my mind. I listen to music a lot when I am fishing or in the car. I enjoy listening to country music the most because I can relate to the lyrics of the songs. How To: Listen to Music How To: Listen to Music First, decide what genre of music you would enjoy listening to. Next, pick the best way to access the music. A couple of examples would be, Pandora, Youtube, car radio, Spotify, Apple Music, etc. Then, pick the song you think you would like to listen to. Finally, enjoy the music and allow it to ease your mind or stress levels. Swimming I have always loved to swim. When I swim, my body is able to relax more, which then helps me to have a relief from stress. I also get an excerise when I swim by doing a few techniques, which is very beneficial. It is also another technique that helps me to clear my head and focus on swimming. Swimming How To: Swim How To: Swim Make sure you have a body of water to swim in, such as a pool, river, lake, creek, ocean, etc. Always make sure you know enough skills to swim safely. Wear the appropriate clothing. If you need a life jacket or safety vest, wear one. Be aware of your surroundings. A Good Amount of Sleep A Good Amount of Sleep I have always battled with having a good sleep schedule, but since I have been really trying to train my body to go to sleep at a decent time, I have noticed a huge difference as far as my stress. Not having an adequate amount of sleep can be a big cause of stress. I have been going to bed early and waking up early, and that has helped my stress a lot. How To: Get An Adequate Amount of Sleep How To: Get A Good Amount of Sleep Train your body to go to bed early and wake up earlier in the morning. Shut electronics and lights off 30 minutes before you are ready to fall asleep. Find out how much sleep is an adequate amount of sleep for your age and try to get that many hours of sleep. Try to be as comfortable as possible. Stay active enough throughout the day, so you are tired enough at night.
Transcript: Veronica Roth At age 22, Veronica Roth's career of an author took off rapidly. Her first novel was published and had movie rights before she graduated college. Roth attended Minnesota's Carleton College before tansferring to Northwestern, graduating from the Prestigious Writing Program. Main Characters Summary of Divergent Tobias Eaton- Also called Four, because of his four fears. He is the instructor of the transfer initiates in the Dauntless compound. Beatrice Prior - The main protagonist and narrator of the divergent series. She is a strong-willed 16-year-old girl, who transferred to Dauntless. Setting Presentation By: Kaylyn Dunn Themes Beatrice Prior lives in a society that is divided into five factions. Candor (The honest), Abnegation (The selfless), Dauntless (The brave), Amity (The Peaceful), Erudite (The Intelligent.) On a particular day of every year, all the sixteen- year- olds have to pick a faction where they live the rest of there lives. Beatrice's decision is either to stay with her parents or be herself. She makes the decision that shocks everyone including herself. Be the Person you want to be- The second theme is be who you want to be. This is a theme, because throughout the whole book Tris has to figure out who she really wants to be and how to express herself without letting her secret out. Divergent Choices- The first theme is choices, because the tagline for this book is, "One Choice can Transform You." In Divergent the choice of your faction is one of the most important choices a person can make. Born August 19, 1988 The setting in the book Divergent is portrayed as a futuristic Chicago, because of the transportation and tall buildings. First off, let me just say this was one of my favorite books. The book was so exciting throughout the whole plot. I found myself reading and never wanting to put the book down. One of the main reasons I loved the book was, because the main character, (Beatrice Prior) was supposed to be the weakest initiate, but in the end she was the strongest and bravest. This is why I recommend that everyone should definitely read Divergent. A prominent item in the book Divergent is the hyperbole " ... my heart will burst out of my chest any minute now." This example of figurative language is on page 38. One scene I found very interesting was when Beatrice was in a stimulation to test her bravery. In the stimulation Tris found herself stuck in a box that was filling up with water and she needed to find a way out. Since Tris is divergent the first thing she did was bang and tap on the glass causing the glass to break. After breaking the glass, Tobias figures out she is Divergent. Most Interesting Prominent Item Veronica Roth Recommendation
