Stress Management Tips in Time for Busy Holidays

In an ideal world, the holidays are meant to be a time of light, love and laughter. We hope that, along with friends and family, you will get in the holiday spirit by joining in the festivities surrounding Life University’s Lights of LIFE holiday campus-wide lights displays, which run from Thanksgiving Night to New Year’s Eve. But despite the colorful decorations and general sense of goodwill, the holiday season can often become a pressure cooker for stress, as familial obligations, financial worries and more start to build up.

A bit fit? Examining Fitness Trackers’ Effectiveness

Have you ever had a friend who complained that they didn’t want to work out because they forgot their FitBit or Apple Watch at home and therefore their efforts ‘won’t count’? I have seen this, and I am also guilty of kicking myself for forgetting my beloved fitness tracker watch in the charger at home. This obsessive and seemingly counter-productive fixation on tracking steps and fitness begs the question: Is all this emphasis on digital fitness tracking and wearables even helping people?

My First Quarter- Keely Nguyen

I would honestly say it’s the close friend group that I made. I made all my best friends at orientation. We are all still really close now. But because I was part of the ‘Covid Quarter,’ I had classes completely online. So, I didn’t get the full Life University (Life U) first-quarter experience, but because I had all of them in my cohort going through the D.C. program, they made my first quarter more memorable because we got to study together, [sit] through lectures together. It created a really great sense of community even though we weren’t in classes on the ground.

The Sigafoose Family is synonymous with Life University (Life U). Dr. Selina Sigafoose-Jackson’s parents, Dr. Jim Sigafoose and Patsy Sigafoose, are both co-founders of Life U. Their daughter continued the family tradition, graduating from the College of Chiropractic program at Life U in September 1989. Sigafoose-Jackson was born and raised in York County, Pennsylvania and never expected that she would end up back there, but that is exactly where she and her husband Dr. Kevin Jackson have lived since moving from Florida some 31 years ago.

Club Spotlight: Blair Upper Cervical Technique Club

The Blair Upper Cervical (Blair UC) Technique is a specific system of analyzing and adjusting the upper cervical vertebrae of the spinal column. These vertebrae can misalign in such a way as to interfere with the brainstem and spinal cord as they exit through the skull into the neural canal. Special attention is given to the first two cervical vertebrae, the atlas and axis, as they are the most freely moveable vertebrae in the spinal column and the ones most commonly misaligned.

Faces of LIFE- Paul Boss

Native Floridian Paul Boss spent a fair amount of his early years with family and friends outdoors, at the beach and on the water. He lived with his mom, his brother Kyle and sister Lauren, and he also has a long-term girlfriend named Mackenzie currently studying Optometry back in his home state. Reflecting on his past, Boss remarked that it was inspiring for him to see how his mom “worked hard to pour into [them] everything that she had to watch [them] succeed.”

My First Quarter- Cortney Blake

I honestly never got to see Life University campus before I came here. It was a really quick turnaround for me. I was wanting to go to medical school originally but then when Covid19 hit, I completely changed career paths and within a few months, I applied and committed to going to Life University and the Chiropractic program. The anticipation built up a bit, not knowing what to expect. It was a little bit of a whirlwind going into my first quarter. It was more exciting not knowing what to expect.
