A Busy Bee's Guide To Handling Everyday Life And Staying Sane Amidst The Chaos

Anyone who lives a hectic lifestyle knows that it can seem impossible to keep a clear head. Being extremely busy usually goes hand in hand with being extremely stressed. And stress can lead to small spouts of insanity.

However, there are steps one can take to stay sane amidst the chaos of everyday life. The key to keeping one's cool is simple: eat, sleep, and breathe.

During my busy days, which is pretty much every day of the week, I often forget to eat. I'll be running around from class to work and back and will forget to take a moment to grab a meal. This leads to nausea, weakness, and other things that have me feeling loopy by the end of the day.

I started packing on-the-go snacks and meals, which I recommend to anyone with a crazy schedule. Now, instead of rushing to find a restaurant on campus without a line or back to my apartment to grab some food, I can eat while I'm going from one destination to another. It's also important to make sure you're eating plenty of protein to keep your energy up while you're taking on the day. And of course, coffee helps.

Also, you must be getting at least seven hours of sleep per night. As someone who is slammed with assignments and projects from five classes and an internship, I understand how sleep can fall to the bottom of one's priorities list. However, lack of sleep will only add to your stress and anxiety from your everyday endeavors. Try to finish work and assignments ahead of time by making progress during the weekends or take naps throughout the day to keep your body and mind going strong.

Lastly, remember to breathe. You should never be too busy to focus on yourself. Make sure to allow yourself time to relax when needed, spend time with friends or just with yourself binge-watching your favorite show, and to just take a deep breath every now and then. This is crucial for any busy bee to be able to stay sane.

Keep going and believe in yourself, because hard work always pays off. Those who fail never had a plan to succeed.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
