Self care is such a vital day in everyone's life, it should be the day where you prioritize you and nobody else.

5 Things To Do On Your Next Self Care Day

When dedicating so much time to other things in life, it's crucial to dedicate time for yourself. To distress and not think about all the other things you're handling. It can be very stressful to manage work life, your house life, and relationships. These are my next five suggestions to do for yourself, for your mind, body and spirit.

1. Book a massage or facial, I was never one to get massages or facials but since being introduce to them. I now know why people love them! It's a great way to get your mind off of stressful surrounding and embracing your mind and body in a spa-like environment. Some spa parlors often run specials for first time guests, so you're not spending a pretty penny.

2. Book a fitness class, with so many different gyms in the world it's amazing to get out there and be active. Being in the gym, or kickboxing, or taking an orange theory class really takes my mind off everything else. In that moment, I'm only focused on setting fitness goals and releasing all the stress and tension I have carried with me. Most gyms offer a free trial for trying them out, and they also offer fitness class or you can directly go to an orange theory or eat the frog fitness and take a heart monitor, coach based class.

3. If you're in an area with beaches, head straight to the beach its a nice way to relax and distress. Whether, you're swimming in the ocean or laying out catching a tan. I can guarantee you're not thinking about work or anything else at that point, its just you, the beach air and the ocean. If not a beach, then head to a park and enjoy some time outside.

4. Head to a local bookstore, or a Barnes and Noble, you don't even have to buy anything just enjoy scrolling through the different book aisles. Pick up a book you like, and sit down and read. I would spend hours at my local Barnes and Nobles reading and drinking Starbucks.

5. Retail Therapy, can certainly, make anyone feel good especially when you know you deserve it. You work hard and every once in a while it's time to treat yourself.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • 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.

Amanda Hayes
  • 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.

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
