How to Unwind and Find Catharsis in NYC: Relaxation

Before I start, I’d like to give a quick shout out to the Campus Clipper. The Campus Clipper has been offering awesome student discounts in NYC, from the East Side to Greenwich Village. The company helps support students in so many ways, from their coupon booklet to their Official Student Guide. Now, on to the blog!

This summer, I interned at Student Maximus Magazine, a publication that helps students living in the city save money and express themselves creatively. Cassandra Fox, the founder of the magazine and company, is on a mission to give students creative outlets, and is avid about young adults finding their passions and becoming masters of whatever they are most enthusiastic about. She assigned the interns a challenging and rewarding task: to write an eBook about something they truly care about, and to become a master of that craft.

College life is crazy. Classes can be overwhelming, socializing can be tiresome, extra-curricular activities can be consuming—at times, finding the balance that allows a student to be happy and busy at the same time seems impossible. I try my best to stay relaxed, but it’s often hard. That’s why I’m trying to master relaxation. It may sound a bit contradictory—relaxation, I suppose, should be something natural and unforced. But I believe we really need to designate times and activities that help us to drop everything and cleanse ourselves of the stresses of college life.

That’s why this eBook will focus on the art of relaxation. I will be fleshing out some of the ideas I have compiled from personal experience, as well as my friends’ experiences, and expert advice on leisure and catharsis.

My name is Ryan Forman. I am a student at Washington University in St. Louis, and graduated from Trinity School in New York City in 2010. I am a Manhattan native. I enjoy writing, reading, music, hanging out with friends, sports, exercising, going to the movies, and, of course, relaxing. I hope you benefit from my advice.
