Why is self-care so important?

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.

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.
