Through my Taekwondo training I've learned how to defend myself, but as a Leadership student, I also received advanced lessons with traditional weapons. I never imagined that using something as simple as a Bo Staff could be so empowering! Although I hope I never have to defend myself against an attacker, I now have the confidence and ability to do so.

According to the Mayo Clinic, people eat more when presented with larger portions of food. And oversized restaurant and packaged food portions have most of us tricked when it comes to realistic serving size. Have you ever looked at the back of a bag of chips and thought, “This should serve how many people?” Incredibly, even children as young as 2 are deceived by package sizes into overeating.

It isn’t practical to carry a food scale everywhere, so use these visual cues to keep plates proportionate.
