than staying up late cramming.
Even a simple 20-minute stroll can clear the mind and reduce stress. But some people prefer vigorous workouts that burn stress along with calories. That's one reason ellipticals are so popular. And the same stretching exercises that help relax your muscles after a hard workout will help relax your mind as well.
Sleep Regular and restful sleep is essential for good health. Sleep helps you feel less stressed and even helps you to maintain a healthy diet. While all-nighters and late-night study sessions may appear to give you more time to cram, they are also likely to drain your brainpower. Sleep deprivation hinders your ability to perform complex cognitive tasks like those required on exams. And it is unlikely that you will retain much information that you study while sleep-deprived. It is better to sleep the night before

STAYING SAFE IN THE SUN Adapted from: https://www.ec.gc.ca With the weather rapidly warming up, weâ€™re all excited to spend more time in the great outdoors. But while we might still be in for a few chilly days before summer hits full force, remember that fresh white snow can increase the amount of UV radiation you receive by up to 85 per cent. In the spring UV radiation from the sun can be very strong, especially when ozone depletion is of concern.
Elene Ueckermann In the late winter and early spring, fresh white snow can increase the amount of UV radiation you receive by up to 85 per cent. Protect yourself on the ski slopes or on the trails by wearing sunscreen on your face, and sunglasses to protect your eyes. In the summertime, consider doing outdoor activities such as swimming before 11 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Remember too that water and sand reflect UV radiation. Also, try to spend less time in the sun by finding shade. When you are outdoors, wear clothes that cover your skin such as hats, shoes, long pants and long-sleeved shirts. Protect your eyes with sunglasses that are UV rated and wear a lot of sunscreen on skin that is not covered. Your sunscreen should block both UV-B and UV-A and have a SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 15 or more. Be sure to reapply it every two hours or after swimming or exercising. In the spring and fall, UV radiation from the sun can be very strong especially in the spring when ozone depletion is of concern. When outdoors, wear protective clothing, sunglasses and a hat. Put on sunscreen to protect any exposed skin. Burns and skin damage can occur quickly and stay with you for a long time.
When should you start taking these protective measures? As soon as you know youâ€™ll be in the sun. We now know that it takes very little time for UV rays to damage your DNA, and increase your risk of skin cancers, weakened immune systems and eye damage.
REMEMBER Sunscreen expires! Sunscreens have a shelf life of 3 years. Never use expired or old sunscreen â€“ check the expiration date!
Sunscreen alone might not be enough! No sunscreen fully blocks UVA/UVB rays from the sun. If you have sensitive skin, wear a t-shirt over your skin to better protect against sun exposure.
Repeat, Repeat, Repeat! Sunscreen should be applied 20-30 minutes before contact with water or sweat, and it should be reapplied every 2 hours.
Ears, feet, hands and lips need sunscreen too! Each of these sensitive areas is prone to painful sunburning! Be sure to rub sunscreen onto the tops and bottoms of your feet and hands (especially when lying out in the sun). Always use a chapstick with SPF, and never forget to get your ears; the tips are extra sensitive to sun and can burn easily.
50 is the max â€“ 15 is the min SPFs higher than an SPF 50 have not been proven to be more effective. SPFs between 30 and 50 have been proven to be most effective when reapplied as needed/directed. Never use a sunscreen with an SPF less than 15 as it does not protect against skin cancer or skin aging and certainly does not protect against painful burns!

SPRING CLEANING YOUR FINANCES BY ELENE UECKERMANN
With a hard year of studying behind us, many of us are facing increasingly empty bank accounts and the prospect of a hard summer of internships, minimum-wage jobs or maybe even a vacation that we’re not too sure we can even afford! Spring’s a great time to have a good hard look at our finances, plan ahead for the holidays and new year. It’s hard work, but it always feels great when it’s done.
Get rid of the clutter It's time to take a good, hard look at your spending from the previous year and figure out where you might have spent too much or bought stuff you didn't really need. Cut out impulse spends and you'll save big in the coming year. Organize your expenses by category. Then, set a monthly target for each and track your progress.
Check for cobwebs Monthly recurring expenses like phone bills can build up financial cobwebs fast. Have a look at your plans and see if you can make changes to save some money. If you always have loads of extra minutes left on your cell plan at the end of each month, downgrade and save, all year long.
Donate what you don't need Some people donate the clothes they don't need anymore. Set aside a comfortable amount you can live without and choose a charity to donate it to. Each month, we'll choose a charity to sponsor on our site so you can donate whenever you're feeling particularly philanthropic.
Make a new routine They say it takes three weeks to form a new good habit. Make this the month when one of those is consistent budgeting. If you can spend under your ideal limits all month long, you can do it for the rest of the year, too. Adapted from: https://www.kiboo.com/know-your-money/c/spring-clean-your-bank-account

Food and Agriculture!! Butterfly Banana Cupcakes By: Rya n Sh oot
How to make it What you'll need FOR THE CUPCAKES: 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature 1-1/3 cups sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3/4 cup milk 2 ripe bananas
ASSORTED DECORATIONS: decorators' icing, gumdrops, string licorice
FOR THE FROSTING: 3 cups confectioners' sugar 1 8-ounce package cream cheese 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.Heat the oven to 375 degrees and line a 12-cup muffin tin with baking cups. Use a dry measuring cup to measure the flour, then pour it into a small mixing bowl. Stir the baking powder and salt into the flour and set aside. (Tip: To measure flour precisely, your child should hold the full cup over her canister of flour and use the flat edge of a knife to level off the flour.) 2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and stir in the vanilla extract. Add the flour and milk alternately, beginning and ending with the flour mixture, stirring well after each addition. Peel the bananas, place them in a separate small bowl, and have your child use a fork to mash them until smooth. Measure out 1 cup of mashed banana. Fold it into the cupcake batter until thoroughly combined.
3. Fill each muffin cup three quarters full. (You will have some excess batter.) Wipe off any spills with a paper towel. Bake the cupcakes for 20 to 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle of one comes out clean. Cool in the muffin tin for 15 minutes and then transfer the cupcakes to a plate. 4. While the cupcakes are baking, make the cream cheese frosting. Cream together the sugar and cream cheese in a large bowl. When the mixture is smooth, beat in the vanilla extract. To tint the frosting, mix in a few drops of food coloring. 5. After the cupcakes have cooled, your child can use a plastic knife to slice the top off each one and then carefully cut each top in half. (Tip: To help prevent crumbling, make sure the cupcakes have completely cooled.) For each butterfly, frost the cut surface of the bottom of the muffin top, then arrange the two semicircles into wings on top (with the round sides of the semicircles touching). Frost the wings, then use decorators' icing to squirt on 2!

Spring Smoothies !
By: Rya n Sh oot
PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA SMOOTHIE There are a lot of surprising smoothies that aid in weight loss, and this is one of them. I wouldn’t have believed that a peanut butter based smoothie could be all that healthy, but the protein is what makes it great. This smoothie is ideal as a replacement meal. Thanks to the peanut butter, you get plenty of protein, and all together, it’s like a peanut butter and banana sandwich! Recipe: Half of one banana 1/2 cup smooth or crunchy low-fat peanut butter 1/2 cup of non-fat milk 6 ice cubes 1 tablespoon of chocolate whey protein powder Place all of the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE Strawberry banana is my favorite flavor combination in all of life, so I’m really excited about this smoothie. Making it is simplicity itself. Cut up a banana, toss in some strawberries, add an orange for flavor, your yogurt, your ice, and voila! That’s all you have to do! Recipe: 1 cup of strawberries 1 banana 1/2 cup of lowfat yogurt or milk 5 ice cubes 1/2 of a sliced
