7 Easy Ways To Make Self-Care A Priority In Your Life Today

Self-care is an essential underrated necessity for us to touch "our" abstract idea of happiness – An intention we all endeavor, yet we remain fogged in the trail of optimally achieving it.

Caring for ourselves empowers us to consider our happiness first. It trains us to protect our value, our health, and our happiness; and being happy from within allows us to advance and provide a positive environment for the people we love and care about the most.

Let's start to take better care of ourselves!

1. Exercise

Exercise plays a fundamental role in being healthy. Exercising not only makes you feel good about yourself but also helps you set goals for yourself. It gives you a foundation to further make better.

Setting goals for yourself also serves as a brilliant lifestyle exercise, as it makes "you" a better "you"!

2. Have a Healthy Diet

Being healthy is not about looks or attractiveness, it's about being able to do things, being able to go places, and being able to live. A healthy diet is extremely important for a healthy "you."

Your diet has a very strong correlation to mental health. Having a healthy diet goes hand in hand with having healthy mental health.

3. D-I-Y Beauty

Spend time in taking care of your beauty – appreciate your beauty. D-I-Y beauty is a great way to spend time on ourselves! Put on a facemask, do your makeup, paint your nails.

Fetching the inner girly in you invariably sets a smile on our faces; doing these little things forever makes us nostalgic about our childhood days.

4. Optimize in Spirituality and Mental Health

Discovering your spiritual carriage can accommodate you to be in a more beneficial cerebral volume. Take time from your day, preferably in the daylight, or simply before bedtime, to read and study who you are, your holy scriptures.

Religious books are assumed to hold all the explanations of our mortal perplexities. Optimality in spirituality and devoutness is a transcendental approach to build your self better mental health.

5. Girls Night Out

Being with "your people" ever fits for the most tranquil space. Going out with your girls, and spending time with them, is a transcendent approach to stimulate communication and connection.

A connection is a fundamental ingredient in optimizing self-care. Connection and Communication help us articulate and verbalize our feelings and emotions in the most constructive style. Plus, who doesn't want a night out with their girls – Cheers!

6. Invest in Your "Thing"

We all have things that we love to do during our leisure, but at times work steers the action, and we become unable to do what we enjoy, whether it be art, music, or even dance.

Take time out of your day and invest in your "thing", in what makes you, YOU. Taking timeout for your crafts is an excellent practice for stress relief. Self-care always cheers you for being you and doing those little things that make you happy!

7. Heal

Last but certainly not the least, Heal. Healing serves as the ultimate gateway to happiness. Healing is not only a substantial chunk of self-care but also a necessity for achieving our abstract ideas of happiness.

Spend time reflecting and interpreting, what or who helps you heal. It's remarkably crucial to be there for yourself when you need you the most. Healing also helps you limit dependence on the presence of other people to make you feel content. It makes you a better person for yourself and the people you love and care about the most.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
