Balancing a full load of classes, a social life, part-time job, and squeezing in that daily workout can be extremely difficult during your four years of college. Whether you have no time in your busy schedule or are entirely too exhausted, finding the perfect workout activity that fits your needs can be a task on its own. Luckily, The Yoga Stand here in Lubbock is a local business that offers numerous yoga classes for a mind, body, and spirit experience. If you have never had the opportunity to practice yoga, you are in for a real treat. Yoga is a total body workout that offers a physical and emotional connection that allows your body to relax and focus on yourself. It is truly a practice that must be experienced to be understood and appreciated. Yoga also is proven to release toxins from the body through its motions and the heavy temperature in the room. The Yoga Stand offers packages for college students that are very “wallet friendly” with multiple classes available each day to fit your daily schedule. If you are looking for the perfect workout with a rewarding experience, sign up for a first time trial class and experience the “yogi” lifestyle for yourself!

Nail polish makes the perfect stocking stuffer. There are so many great colors that can really add a pop to any holiday ensemble. A metallic color is always fun to do around the holidays, especially for New Year’s Eve. Find one that adds just a little extra sparkle to your outfit. Dark blues are always a good winter color, and berry is a very popular color this holiday season. Instead of going with typical, try berry instead. A dark emerald green is another great color for the colder months. An emerald green can add a hint of sparkle, without being overwhelming, to any winter outfit. Of course not all winter nail colors need to be of the dark variety. A pale pink is always a nice way to brighten up an outfit. Try finding a pink in a soft shade that will help accent anything you are wearing. Below are some of our favorite winter nail polish finds!
