In part one of a two part Dave on the Mall we find out what Appalachian students are doing to take care of themselves.
Dave: On this Dave on the Mall, the first of a two-part series, we ask Appalachian State University students, “What are you going to do this week to take care of yourself?”

Voice 16: This week to take care of myself, I’m going to brush my teeth.

Voice 23: I’m going to eat healthy and work out.
Voice 24: I’m going to sleep for at least eight hours every night.
Voice 25: This week to take care of myself I’m probably going to do more stuff for me. You know, take time to withdraw and recuperate, and then go do stuff because I have a lot to do and you don’t want to overdo stuff.
Voice 26: Well, today I’m going to go take a nap, so I think that’s one of the things that’s going to take care of myself.
Dave: So we’ve now discovered what some Appalachian State University students are going to do to take care of themselves; next time, we’ll find out what Appalachian State Students are going to do to help someone else. I’m Dave, and that was Dave on the Mall.
