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.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
