11 Things That Are Easier Said Than Done

"I wish it was the other way around."

Marilyn Palmer

We all have something that we wish we could do or say in the snap of a finger. But often times, they’re much easier said than done. Whether it's something that you don't have the confidence for or something that you’ve tried before and just can't seem to stick with. Believe it or not, a lot of us are in the same boat. So in hopes of one day having the confidence, courage or whatever it may be to take action, rather than keeping quiet, here's 11 things that are easier said than done.

1. "I’m going to worry about myself and my own decisions instead of focussing on what everyone else would think.”

2. “I won’t hold any grudges.”

3. "I won’t care what others think of me.”

4. "I’m totally going to stick with the gym...for real this time.”

5. "I’m over him/her I won’t be sad anymore.”

6. "I am DONE with the junk food.”

Okay, maybe one more donut wouldn’t hurt.

7. "I’m done overthinking everything, I’m just going to let life take its course.”

8. "I'm going to walk right up to him/her and tell them exactly how I feel.”

That is, after a couple of drinks first.

9. "I won’t get emotionally attached to fictional characters in my shows that I watch on Netflix.”

Try watching Grey’s Anatomy and then tell me how you feel.

10. "I’m not going to sleep away my life.”

Ugh but sometimes it's just so hard to get up after a long week of school/work or a late night out with the girls.

11. "I won’t stress out.

Ha ha, right. Wouldn't that be nice?

But as some of my favorite girls from school would say, “It’s fine. I’m fine. I’m going to be okay. I’m not worried.” We all run into things like this at one point or another, it just comes down to being able to take action instead of keeping quiet or staying frozen in our bubble of safety. Trust me, all of these things up here are things that I do/have struggled with, I guess it’s just nice to know that I’m not alone.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
