How much should I be moving?

As the end of the semester approaches, it becomes harder to make sure you are still taking care of yourself – getting enough sleep, eating a well-balanced diet, drinking plenty of water and making time to get moving. But it’s just as important as ever to do so!

Check out what Matthew had to say…

What led you to become a therapist?

I like understanding things. I get geeky about a topic and dive in to make sense of whatever that thing is. When I decided to work toward being a therapist, a big part of that was a desire to understand people. The more people I work with, the deeper understanding I get about the human experience.

#DVAM Topic: Financial Abuse

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the The Fontaine Center’s RSVP Peer Educators at UGA have been busy hosting events to raise awareness around this issue and encourage their peers to be proactive in helping friends who may be in need. Click here for an event list and to find out how you can get involved!

Below is a note from one of the RSVP Peer Educators, Hannah Maddux, on a lesser-known aspect of domestic violence: Financial Abuse.

A common question that people leaving abusive relationships are asked is “why didn’t you just leave sooner?”. There are many factors that affect decisions to leave or not to leave, but in particular, financial abuse by a partner can be extremely difficult to overcome in cases of domestic violence.

#FluGA Tips for Dawgs

Flu season is upon us. At the University Health Center we are, as you can imagine, starting to see the signs and symptoms of flu trickle in.  Below are some simple steps you can take to keep yourself and the UGA community healthy.

Prevent the Flu

  1. Get a flu shot. The best way to prevent the flu is to be immune to the viruses. If you haven’t gotten a flu shot yet, you should get one!
  2. Practice good hand hygiene by either hand washing with soap and water or by using alcohol-based gels.
  3. Do not touch your face, eyes or mouth unless your hands are clean.
  4. Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing. An uncovered cough or sneeze can project respiratory droplets 3 to 6 feet or more!
