After high school, I went to a university that was far away from home. I could only visit my friends and family every six months. Of course, I missed them, so I started using social media. It enabled us to keep in touch with each other. When I was in my second year of university, a friend in my hometown and her husband had a baby girl. The very same day, I was able to see pictures of their daughter. A year later, on my dorm room computer, I watched a live video of her taking her first steps. What had the biggest impact on me, however, was following my sister’s adventures while she studied abroad in Spain. I hate to say it, but I started to feel envious of them because their lives seemed so perfect. This is one of the problems with social media. People only post the good things that happen to them, and without thinking about it, we compare ourselves to them. Social media allowed me to experience things I otherwise would have missed. However, it is also necessary to be aware of all the good things in our own lives.

Jason : Hi, Bella. Nina and I were just talking about how excited we are about our ski trip this coming January.
Bella : Me too, but I’m worried whether my body can handle skiing for two weeks. I’m stretching every day to improve my flexibility, but I don’t think it’s enough.
Nina : Why don’t we start an exercise program to help us prepare?
Bella : That’s a great idea, Nina, but what do you recommend? Should we focus on muscle strength or stamina?
Nina : Well, I think the most important thing is to improve our stamina. We’ll be skiing on some of the most challenging mountains in Canada. If we’re not well-conditioned, we’ll run out of energy
quickly. What do you think, Jason?
Jason : Exactly. I think we should start jogging … maybe five kilometers a day, and gradually work our way up to ten. What do you think, Bella?
Bella : I agree, but I think we should also focus a little on strength. If our legs aren’t strong enough, we won’t be able to make sharp turns … or stop quickly. It’s good to be able to ski all day, but if we
get injured, our trip will be over! If we only focus on stamina, we won’t have enough muscle.
Jason : I guess so. Nina, do you have any suggestions for building up strength?
Nina : Well, in addition to the jogging, maybe every other day we could do weight training. I recommend squats. That’ll really make our legs stronger.
Jason : Bella, are you OK with Nina’s idea?
Bella : I think every other day is too much. We have only six months before our trip, and I think stamina has to be our priority. What do you say, Nina?
Nina : Sounds good.
Jason : OK. Let’s go running on Mondays and Fridays, and then go to the weight room on Wednesdays. This would give us the best mix of stamina and strength.
