10 Benefits Of Owning A Fitbit

Fitbits are the biggest fitness tracker out there right now. And nothing compares to hitting 10,000 steps. Don't you agree?

1. Nothing feels better than reaching your step goal. When your wrist starts vibrating, it's (almost) like you won the lottery.

2. You'll sleep more. It makes you realize you really don't need to lay in bed and watch episodes of Hawaii Five O because that's valuable sleep time. Gotta meet my goal.

3. You literally never take it off. Never. Just to shower and charge it (which you do when you're sitting, so you don't miss tracking any activity).

4. "Friendly" competition keeps you movin'. The fact you can challenge your friends on who gets the most steps is the best and worst thing to happen, especially if you're competitive. You'll walk around your house like a madman just to get those last 200 steps (Thanks Ashley).

5. When you do take it off and forget to wear it, life is over (but kinda). That's thousands of steps. So many floors. Gone.

6. You are more aware. Seeing stats of how many calories you're burning, how much activity you're getting, your quality of sleep, how much activity your friends are getting, etc. opens your eyes. I've been sleeping better because instead of falling asleep to Netflix (which, can people actually do?) I listen to a boring podcast that knocks me out in a few minutes.

7. You don't have to remember to log workouts, this thing somehow knows what kind of workout you do and tracks that too. Unreal.

8. Eight-hour workdays go so much faster. Taking two, five-minute breaks and walking around the building, up and down the stairs, or maybe around the block not only adds steps, but gets you away from a computer and gives you more energy and focus on work.

9. (If you have one with heart rate) You get more out of your workouts. You can see if your heart rate was in fat burn, cardio or peak mode, so you can see if you're pushing yourself hard enough, or if you need to change it up.

10. It's a one stop shop. One app where you can track your water intake, what you eat, your workouts, sleep, heart rate, weight, distance traveled, and more. Instead of going between apps to stay on top of your fitness regime, it's all in one place. Convenient, simple, and fast.

With Spring Break right around the corner, why not give up a few hungover brunches and weekend trips to the bars and invest in a new best fit friend? You won't regret it (I promise).

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
