How to connect with your spirit

9 things you should do every day to connect with your spiritual side

For the less-spirited folks out there.

Kaitlyn Moore

We all know that being in touch with your mind, body, and soul is the only way to be a completed balanced human being. A little bit of personal time every day will help you become a happier person. After years of trying things out I have found what I think works best for me to enjoy my spirit.

1. Read a book

Even if it's just 6 pages a day. It'll help get away from your current day-made and focus on something else

2. Go outside

Sitting outside and literally just listening to the birds or the cars driving by on the road can help you focus and realign your mind.

3. Scroll through Pinterest

I know it sounds so strange, but scrolling through Pinterest makes my soul so happy. It gives me great ideas and makes me feel like a creative woman.

4. Diffuse oils

I use my dōTERRA diffuser which can basically lull me to sleep or wake me the hell up depending on which oils I diffuse.

5. Do yard work

This one might not work well with everyone but yard work to me is so satisfying and makes me feel accomplished and happy.

6. Hang with your grandparents

Hanging with gram and gramps makes me feel like a kid again, and there is nothing wrong with putting life aside for a hot sec.

7. Put your damn phone down

Spend time in your bedroom, living room, make a meal, chill outside...without your phone. It's gonna feel funny as first but living without a constant ring or feeling like you are waiting for something is great.

8. Go on a hike by yourself

Sometimes going into the woods and experiencing a quiet time with nature can be so fulfilling. You might feel like a new person after this.

9. Drive without any music.

This might be one of the only times you have not a single noise around you. Take advantage of it and use time to think

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
