6 Crystals All College Students Need

When there is nothing else to alleviate the stresses and anxieties of higher education.

6 Crystals All College Students Need
Conscious Lifestyle Magazine

As college students we undergo a boatload of stress, anxiety, and sleepless nights. Many of us turn to various remedies that we have deemed adequate to alleviate these stresses and anxieties. For me, I find my remedies in healing crystals. Now, I understand that most people would mock or dismiss using a handful of rocks to solve all of your problems. And some people would question the sanity of someone who believes that these said rocks have any healing powers at all. I can understand that. I myself am not even quite sure that these crystals have healing power. I am sure, however, that if you believe that these crystals will solve your problems, they will. The power of suggestion can be everything and more when you are stressed, anxious, or sleepless.

How I look at it, is that the crystals work almost as a placebo to calm or "heal" you of whatever seems to be bothering you. And, in my experience, it has always seemed to work. I have composed a list of six crystals that I think would benefit most college students during the intense, emotional school year.

1. Amethyst

Purpose: Amethyst is powerful in protecting the mind from negative thinking that so often happens during your college years. Its so easy to fall into a daze of negative thoughts when you are ties of up in a handful of exams and a few essays. It also works to alleviate stress related to work, by emanating prosperity and success. To increase our work effectiveness in college, it can also be used to facilitate cognition and communication

2. Aquamarine

Purpose: College students often get caught up in their everyday routine of going to class, doing homework, going to club meetings, and rarely finding time to themselves. Aquamarine helps to liven up sluggish behaviors. By encouraging personal time to enjoy life and appreciate the wonders of the world. It is also powerful in encouraging self-respect and inner peace.

3. Blue Lace Agate

Purpose: Blue Lace Agate works to calm and sooth emotions by reflecting images of peace and serenity. Peace and serenity are both scarce during your college days, especially during finals week when the only peace and serenity you find is in that cup of coffee you chug down before you 8 A.M. Human Anatomy final. By protecting us from negative emotions, Blue Lace Agate leads us on a path of understanding and learning, away from any and all anxieties.

4. Clear Quartz

Purpose: Like it is described, Clear Quartz is powerful in clearing away negativity and toxins with in the body. It is used to open up the mind to new and enlightened perspectives, clearing any communication or cognition blockages. For college students it can work to suggest new insights when suffering from writers block. It can set you on a new track when you have hit a dead end.

5. Jade

Purpose: Not only can jade be useful in riding the face for wrinkles and tension that can become early onset in anxious college students, it can also be used to inspire you to push past any limitations and give you the wisdoms you need in order to succeed. Jade can also help to bring you prosperity in you life. At our age, it is easy to see any obstacle and quit, but Jade can encourage you to push past those self-imposed limitations and prosper in your successes.

6. Pyrite

Purpose: Typical adjectives used to describe college students are "poor" and "broke." Pyrite however channels money and abundance which can be beneficial to those student who are having to beg their friends to meal them in the dining halls. Pyrite also helps to focus your confidence and encourages the belief that "you can and you will." Sometimes a little help in making dreams reality is what college students need in order to succeed.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
