College can be a time of self-discovery and experimentation, and many college students choose to experiment with alcohol or attend parties where drinking is expected. Keep in mind that it is always safer and smarter to take a taxi than to drive a car after drinking. Here is the college student’s guide to drinking responsibly:
Avoid Drinking Games
Drinking games may be a staple of college parties everywhere, but they tend to force you to drink at a more rapid pace than normal. When it comes to drinking responsibly, it is best to avoid games like beer pong and flip cup that encourage you to drink excessively. If you still want in on the fun, try playing altered versions of these games, such as water pong. You can still play the game and have fun without drinking irresponsibly.
Make Your Own Drinks
When it comes to mixed drinks, the only way to know how much alcohol you are consuming is to make the drinks yourself. This is especially important if you are in a new environment where you don’t know many people; you may have a different tolerance to alcohol than the other people at the party, so you should make your drinks yourself. If you feel like you are drinking too quickly, use less alcohol and more mixers in your drinks.
Your body typically processes alcohol at a steady rate; one standard drink takes about an hour to be metabolized. Thus, one drink per hour is a responsible rate of alcohol consumption. If you finish your drink in under an hour, have a glass of water before filling up again. This will rehydrate you and add extra time between drinks, allowing your body more time to process them. Alternating your drinks with water also allows you to judge your level of intoxication more reasonably, because your drinks have time to “catch up with you.”

Who says flying has to be so stressful? Instead of spending an entire day stressed out because of your travels, take your next trip into your own hands. Keep reading for some advice on how to simplify the art of flying:
The way you pack, and what you pack, can make or break your trip. Instead of checking a lot of bags that might not make it to your destination when you do, try to fit everything into carry-on luggage. You’ll also avoid the costs of checking extra luggage. Follow TSA regulations to ensure that your bag will make it through security and travel with you inside the plane without issue.
Get to the Airport Early
One quick way to make air travel more stressful is to cut yourself short on time. Call a taxi service to take you to the airport with plenty of time before your flight so you can check in, find your gate, and relax before you get on the plane. Organizing airport transportation helps you minimize the stress associated with traveling.
Bring Some Useful Extras
If you are about to embark on a long flight, prepare for it with plenty of reading materials, music, and movies to keep you entertained. Staying pleasantly distracted during a flight takes your focus from how much longer it will be until you reach your destination. Packing these modes of entertainment can help you de-stress before and during a long trip.
