Learning To Cope With Anxiety

The topic of mental health is one that many are afraid to approach for fear of being judged or misunderstood. Anxiety is just one of those mental health issues that can cause one to feel a vast range of emotions. Believe it or not there are a few things you can do to help manage these moments.

Writing is one of the easiest ways to express your emotions when you are feeling anxious. You can write down what is stressing you out at the moment, what your feeling in the moment or reflect on a moment that brought you joy.

Take a walk

Nature is a natural healer, so there's no other place to be when you're feeling anxious. Put on your shoes and head outside for some fresh air. The sounds of nature fuels the soul and can help clear your mind.

Talk to someone

This is probably the most challenging one. When it comes to having anxiety talking about what's causing your anxiousness can be challenging, but the benefits are worth it. Whoever you have in your support system to talk too, give them a call or shoot them a text. Let them know that you need someone to talk too.

Watch a movie

Whenever I am feeling anxious I tend to turn on something that makes me really happy. Find one of your favorite television shows or movies and rewatch it. This will take your mind of our reality for a bit, and into the world of your favorite story. It could also provide a good laugh which is always a joy.

Limit Alcohol

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11514

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
