    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Relief From the Rigors of PT School

Sometimes school, especially graduate school, can be overwhelming. Sometimes it can be one week of horror followed by a week of sunshine and daisies. The Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) program has been very much like this over the past 2 months. It has been extremely busy and has been what I like to call “a grind”.

Although it has tested me from time to time, I’m doing well and thoroughly enjoying what I am learning about. As a college student it is essential to give yourself a break from schoolwork during these rigorous weeks. This can be going out for an hour with a group of friends, working out, going on a hike/run, watching some TV, baking, eating one of your favorite snacks, playing a video game, calling family or friends, etc. There are so many things you can do to take your mind off of school. I think this is essential when it comes to staying organized and not getting bogged down over the course of the year. I have to confess that I have a strong desire to eat ice cream when I need a break from a busy week. It reminds me to take a few scoops and just chill out. It is also delicious and is my go to for stress-relief. I’m not saying to bury yourself in junk food, but take time to treat yourself once in awhile to remind yourself of the good/tasty/beautiful things in life during those busy and stressful weeks!

Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream is my weakness, but also my strength when it comes to taking time to disengage with schoolwork during a busy week.
