Ever feel like there's not enough time in your day? Here are some incredibly stupid time-wasters that you can easily cut out of your schedule.

1. Stop folding your underwear and pajamas. Seriously - nobody sees that stuff. Or if they do, it probably means you're in a close enough relationship that they shouldn't be judging you for wrinkly clothing.

2. Change up your morning routine. You probably set your morning routine years ago - the way you get ready now almost certainly isn't the most productive way to do it. Try brushing your teeth when you first get up and go to the bathroom, not checking your phone until after you eat breakfast, or picking out your outfit the night before. If you plan carefully, you can score an extra half an hour of sleep.

3. Time yourself when you go on social media. Do you ever plan to go online for only a few minutes, then find yourself wasting hours scrolling through facebook? Set a timer. When five minutes are up, get off the internet.

4. Take "productive breaks." Everybody needs to take a break sometimes. But that doesn't have to mean drooling over pizza and Netflix. Is there a book sitting on your shelf that you just never got around to reading? Do you like taking walks? Everyone enjoys certain activities that are "healthy" or "productive" while still being fun. Find yours, and incorporate them into your schedule.

5. Clean up after yourself as you go along. Everyone has experienced that moment when you dump dirty underwear on the floor or leave dishes in the sink and tell yourself, "I'll get it later." This inevitably leads to monstrous piles of Stuff accumulating in terrifying abundance. Go ahead and walk the extra two steps to put your underwear in the laundry bin. Take five minutes to wash the dishes. You'll thank yourself later.

6. Don't look in the mirror so often. Yes, this goes for guys too. Going to the bathroom takes two minutes, but it can take a lot longer if you spend an extra ten minutes trying to get your hair exactly right. At the end of the day, you're going to look exactly the same as you did in the beginning. There's nothing wrong with looking in the mirror, but try and limit it to once or twice a day. Trust me, nobody cares whether or not your every hair is in place.

7. Set a bedtime. It can be 11:00 pm, it can be 3:00 am - you know your body best, you know what sleep schedule works for you. Set a time and stick to it.

Changing your routine just a little bit can increase your happiness a lot. Make the time for the things that matter - because, at the end of the day, you only live once.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
