- Why Are Our Core Values Important?As we’ve grown, it has become extremely important to define the Core Values of Honor Society. This is to explicitly and implicitly help all of our members and national committees to flow together cohesively, rooting themselves in the culture and values of our organization. It is important for us to give information on how we lay the foundation for decision making, what our mission is, and how our culture can help members to be the best they can be in everyday situations. You can find our page outlining our Core Values here.

- Tips for MotivationIt's sometimes difficult to motivate ourselves, or even to be motivated by others. A lack of motivation causes us to feel stuck and uninspired, which can take a toll on our productivity. First, get fresh air. When we're not feeling motivated, it is usually do to a lack of stimulation. The best solution? Nature. The best way to become engaged with the world around you is to go on a 5-10 minute walk, without the distraction of electronics. Second, work in chunks of time. Break down projects to schedule 5 minute breaks in between each tasks. While this may seem to stretch the time out, it will actually cause much less of a burn out. Also, focus on the feeling of it being done, rather than the time it takes to get there. This provides a "light at the end of the tunnel" feeling early on.

Every year, thousands of people from over 20 different countries manage to raise over $400 million for cancer recovery and prevention.

Not only was Relay for Life another night of victory over cancer, it was a night I'll never forget. (The cover image was downloaded from NAU's Relay for Life Facebook page.)
