11 Things People Wear That Are WAY More Embarrassing Than A Face Mask

It's no secret that Americans are very annoyed by the addition of face masks to their life. By now you've seen plenty of people whine and grip and claim how masks are going to make them pass out, all via the Facebook comments section, of course. While a portion of the population has accepted masks as the short-term solution to the global crisis we're directly in the middle of, others need more convincing.

But come on, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls — there are things we've all been guilty of sporting that are WAY worse than a simple face mask.

Less-than-successful sports teams aside, masks are the last of many of our fashionable worries.

1. Socks and sandals 

Look, you want to talk about how uncomfortable face masks are? Then I don't want to see you in athletic socks while you're rocking flip flops.

2. Matching couple's clothes 

This requires SO much more effort.

3. Greek letters 

Kappa Kappas can wear masks, too!

4. Excessively large cowboy hats 

Save a horse and mask up, cowboy.

5. A white dress to a wedding

Even when it's a virtual wedding, it's still a bad look.

6. Sunglasses inside

You can wear your sunglasses at night, IF you also wear your reusable face mask.

7. Low-rise jeans 

Low-rise jeans are out, face masks are in.

8. Denim on denim 

Do they sell denim-looking face masks? You better believe it.

9. See-through leggings 

You wouldn't think this is as big of a problem as it actually is. Kind of like you wouldn't think wearing a mask is the end of the world, but to some people it is.

10. FBI (Female Body Inspector) shirts

The fact that these shirts haven't been banned is actually shocking.

11. Long cargo shorts

You know what you don't need? Ninety-seven pockets. You know what you do need? Protection against a global pandemic.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.

As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

Instead, see it as an article to help guide you in a healthier direction when finding solutions to minimize your anger. If you are dealing with anger issues, please consult your primary care physician, or reach out to Better Help.

Everyone has dealt with anxiety, stress, and even anger at some point in their lives. For some, it's a daily battle with coping anger issues. In fact, it can be brought on by something rather random, or it could even be caused by a highly stressful job where you are dealing with incompetent coworkers and feeling rather under-appreciated. Although life tends to bring along this type of stress that piles on top of the already raging volcano inside, it is best to learn how to live with it in a healthy way.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.
