So cool! My former prof, Dr. Peper, is featured in SF News! I took his courses in the early 90s and he was an amazing instructor. Taught me loads about both eastern and western holistic health perspectives. Inspiring! Here’s a blurb from this recent piece (can’t reinforce #1 enough!!!):
“For students who have yet to take a holistic health class, Peper has tips that can improve health during midterms and finals.
- Don’t go to class ready to absorb information like a sponge; arrive primed with questions so you’re actively listening.
- Try to snag a seat in the front of the class and take notes.
- After class, find a study group with peers so you can discuss materials in multisensory ways.
- After studying, call a friend and talk about what you just absorbed. This helps the information sink in.
- Consider reviewing materials before going to bed, so it’s fresh in your mind when you wake up.
- Learn a simple relaxation technique, such as tightening and releasing various muscle groups in your body.
- Notify instructors as soon as you have questions.
- Learn a breathing exercise.
- When studying, sit at a desk and avoid checking emails and social media.
- Learn more holistic health concepts and skills by taking holistic health classes.”
