It’s time to start decorating. Christmas is closing in on us! If you’re looking to get festive, though you want to think outside the box, here are some easy DIY ideas to bring Christmas cheer into your home.

Yarn Christmas Tree

All you need for this decoration is some yarn, tape, colorful paper, scissors, and felt (though that is optional). Cut the yard into several long strips and tape them in the triangular shape of a tree onto the wall. Using some colorful paper and or felt, craft your own circular “ornaments” and tape them on. This is an easy way to craft your own Christmas tree!

Advent Calendar

Do you like counting the days to Christmas? Well, get some muslin craft bags (or you could make small pockets out of paper), decorate and number them, and then fill them up with small treats. Hang them along ribbons on the wall and there is your advent calendar counting down till Christmas day!

Sweet Centerpiece

This centerpiece is perfect for the holiday season. You’ll need red, white, silver, and green candies as well as an empty vase of some kind. You can probably see where this is going. In the vase, layer the red, white, silver, and green treats. If you would like, you can wrap a bow around the vase. There’s your colorful, delicious centerpiece!

Bottle Candles

Repurpose glass bottles for this awesome decoration! Get some thin candles, festive wrapping paper and ribbons to make some creative candle centerpieces for your home. Cover the bottle labels with a thick strip of wrapping paper, tie a bow around the bottle with a ribbon, and place the candle securely onto the bottle spout. There are your bottle candles!

Dangling Treats

For this sweet decoration, you will need some ribbons, scissors, tape, candy canes, and a wall. Simply cut the ribbons into short pieces and make a loop at the end of them where the candy canes will be hooked onto. Tape the ribbon loops onto the wall, place the candy canes into each loop, and there are your dangling treat decorations!

Cookie Garland

Cookies are practically essential when it comes to celebrating Christmas. This decoration makes use of them in an interesting way. Whip up a batch of cute gingerbread cookies (you can use any shape you desire) and make two holes, beside one another, in the yummy treat. Get a long ribbon and thread it through the holes you made in the cookies. You can keep the cookies as far apart as you would like them on the string and once you are finished, hang it in an entryway or by the fireplace.

Mason Jar Christmas Tree

Do you want to dress up a mantel or table with a small Christmas tree? Well, this Mason Jar Tree is a cute and original way to do just that! Get six like-sized mason jars and fill each with the ornaments of your choosing. You can add tinsel, greenery, anything you like. Stack the jars as a pyramid (three on the bottom, two in the middle, and one on the top), wrap a garland around the jars and place a star ornament (or a cut out) on top! There is your Mason Jar Christmas Tree!

These are all great and unique ideas that can help you bring some interesting decorations into your home to enjoy the Christmas season. I hope you’ve gathered some inspiration for your decorations this year. Happy Holidays!

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

Tuesday's debate had a lot of talking points. (And by that I mean a lot of interruptions... 76 to be exact by none other than Donald Trump.)

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.

As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

If you are dealing with anger issues, please consult your primary care physician, or reach out to Better Help.

Everyone has dealt with anxiety, stress, and even anger at some point in their lives. For some, it's a daily battle with coping anger issues. In fact, it can be brought on by something rather random, or it could even be caused by a highly stressful job where you are dealing with incompetent coworkers and feeling rather under-appreciated. Although life tends to bring along this type of stress that piles on top of the already raging volcano inside, it is best to learn how to live with it in a healthy way.
