5 Ways To Stay Happy

At this point in the year, everyone is done. Whether that be with work, school, or just the slow burn out of being half way through the year. No matter how you see it, everyone is at the point of no motivation and I mean -400 percent of motivation. So here are just a few simple ways to stay happy.

1. Look up at the sky.

The sky is filled with wonderful things. The sun shines for everything. It brings warmth and life to the earth. Then, we have the clouds! They are beautiful, fluffy, puffy clouds. The ones that you used to find pictures in. And of course, we have the big blue sky. The clear blue, the bright blue, the blue that grows brighter and darker as the day goes on; the best kind of sky.

2. Eat something yummy.

Yum! Are you a salty person? Maybe a sweetie-pie? Whichever you are enjoy something for yourself." Treat yo Self"

3. Netflix.

As stereotypical as it is, "Netflix and Chill," **by yourself** is some of the best therapy out there. Watch your guilty pleasure, do the binge watch and pop yourself some microwave popcorn. Then, lay on the bed, grab a blanket, sit back and relax.


Sleep is so important and even though it's stressed in our culture, there is a severe lack of it. People are putting their school, work, and everything else but themselves first. Sometimes, you need to take a step back and nap. Naps are bae.

5. Exercise.

Yes, moving. How very anti-lazy. But believe it or not, exercise makes you happy. When you get up and move around, good things happen. Your body releases a chemical, endorphin's, and they make you happy. So get up off of your butt and run wild and free.

If you do all of these and still feel gross.... not possible. These are fool proof. I know this for a fact. And remember, stay happy.

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
