15 Self Care Remedies For When You Don't Feel Like Going To The Gym

For the typical gym-goers who like to stay in a routine, what do you do when you just don't have the motivation to go? I know one thing, you shouldn't punish yourself. Taking care of your body can come in many forms, not just pumping iron. Here are some that will make you feel better doing one or all of them.

1. Eat balanced.

A balanced lifestyle is key to happiness ladies and gentlemen. Make yourself a nice salad, or pizza, start from scratch, get ingredients, turn up the music, and enjoy yourself.


2. Listen to music and light a candle.

Just laying down, listening to music in bed is peaceful.


3. Face masks.

These are probably one of the most soothing and liberating things you can do for yourself.


4. Stretch/Yoga.

This is so good for your body, and extremely relaxing.


5. Take a hot shower/bath.

Stay in there for a while and shave your legs too.


6. Drink green tea.

I recommend the Yogi brand: Green Tea Kombucha….hits the spot.


7. Write.

Write down your thoughts, goals, or schedule for the week. Writing relieves tension built up in your mind.


8. Go on a walk/hike.

Nature is beautiful, don't take it for granted.


10. Color/Draw.

Art is the silent language of the world. Even if you can't draw...doodle. It works.


11. Watch a movie.

This might not seem like self care, but girl when you're stressed, a new TV series or movie is a great distraction.


12. Watch Youtubers

LOVE this. Some of my favorites are Gabby Scheyen, Jen Bretty, Whitney SImmons, Macy Eleni, Olivia Vargas, and Kenzie Brenna.


13. Coffee.

Because it makes everyone feel better.


14. Drink water.

I've come to learn that water is your best friend. It does many good things for you, so please hydrate yourself.


15. Online Shopping.

Retail therapy is my best friend and could be yours too.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
