The Cleanse That EVERYONE Needs To Try

The newest type of cleanse that will benefit both the mind and soul.

The Cleanse That EVERYONE Needs To Try

Everyone has heard of all of the cleanses out there: The Juice Cleanse, The Master Cleanse, Skin Cleanse, so many detox diets that it's hard to keep them all straight. But there is one cleanse that is nearly unheard of, but yet the most important when maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The Ultimate Psychological Cleanse.

For this cleanse, you don't have to live off of spinach or bathe in charcoal, but you will have to eliminate all of the toxins in your mind and life. It might sound a little too 'flower child' for your comfort, so here is a step by step list of how to cleanse yourself mentally.

1. Focus on the positive surroundings

Every day you are surrounded by things that can immediately affect your mood: getting a text from that cute boy, running late to class, spilling your coffee on your new white shirt, etc. A lot of these things you cannot really control: so instead, focus on what exactly makes you happy and surround yourself with it. Your best friend, a certain place in the library, listening to a certain playlist while walking to class, anything! Figuring out exactly what things make you happy is the first step of detoxing that cluttered mind.

2. Out with the bad sh*t

That guy that only hits you up at 2 am on Saturday nights? Those friends that don't love you and all your dumb decisions? The dumb show on Netflix that you watch when you should be studying for that next exam? GET RID OF IT! You don't need any of that negativity in your life. Organize your life so that you are only surrounded by good things and people that encourage and support you. Out with the bad and in with the new amiright.

3. Fix that mental planner

Your life is crazy and full of clutter that you don't need. Start planning out your days, from waking up to showering to sleeping. The more specific your schedule is, the more organized you will feel, and the more positive your days will be. Don't leave any time for that negative juju that has been clouding your mind lately.

4. Spend time focusing on yourself

The best way to cleanse your lifestyle is to focus on self-love. As cheesy as it sounds, you can never really focus on anyone else until you learn to fully love yourself. Take yourself on a date; do yoga, go to the gym, try a new restaurant, treat yourself to a new outfit, whatever you need to do to feel like the badass that you are. Take time for yourself.

5. Stick to your new lifestyle

The hardest part about cleansing your life is to avoid falling back into old habits.Organize your new life in a way that will make you never want to fall back into your old life. Surround yourself with positivity, and make a life for yourself that only encourages you to be your absolute best.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
