10 Easy Habits To Practice Each Morning That Will Have A HUGE Impact On The Rest Of Your Day

Good morning, good afternoon, and goodnight — or whenever you end up reading this.

A lot of people, especially in college, are not morning people, and trust me, neither am I. I enjoy sleeping just as much as any college kid. However, I know a lot of people who tend to not look forward to the morning or even the next day. I have started doing a couple of things that make my mornings... just easier.

Some of these have been harder for me to implement in my life compared to others, but all have made a difference in my life someway, somehow, and I hope that you will try to form some of these habits yourself and see how it makes a difference in your own life.

1. Drink water

I am an avid coffee drinker and I have noticed that drinking water first thing in the morning makes your body run much smoother. Nothing wrong with a little health and hydration!

2. Start with three things you are grateful for

I do this every single morning and it has helped me have a more positive outlook on life. I promise it will put a smile on your face, too.

3. Don't forget to check the weather

You do not want to be that ONE person who does not dress appropriately for the weather, trust me — I have been there.

4. Avoid the "snooze" button at all costs

I know this is almost the hardest thing to do in the world, especially when we are groggy, but holding yourself accountable first thing in the morning feels so good. Plus does that extra five minutes REALLY make a difference?

5. Make your to-do list

Making a list of what you have to do throughout the day is beneficial in not only making sure you have everything done, but that feeling of checking off a box is SO rewarding (unless I am the only one who gets excited from doing that).

6. Eat some food and prepare snacks for the day

OK, I use to be the person who could never have time to eat in the morning, but now I can not live without it. EAT — it is crucial for your mind and body in order to function. Also, being hungry in between classes is the worst thing ever, so make sure you bring snacks.

7. Wash your face

When we sleep, our pillows can be dirty and also our face can get extremely gross from sweat and oil, so make sure you wash your face with cleanser or just water. Oh, and don't forget to moisturize!

8. Make your bed

Making your bed does not mean it has to be in perfect condition without a single crease, but it should be done. It will feel nice to have the first task of the day completed.

9. Remind yourself what makes you happy

A lot of things in this world like to try to bring us down — we cannot let that get to us. Remember happy memories and do things that make you happy, such as reading or working out.

10. SMILE

You are alive and breathing. Be happy that you are walking on this planet being able to reach your dreams and goals. Many people end up taking this for granted and that is a huge issue.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
