With a show as emotional and complex as Grey's Anatomy, you can always count on your favorite characters to have become as unmotivated and diffident as you may feel at times. The wisdom of Dr. Webber, bravery of Meredith Grey, power of Christina Yang, strength of Bailey- each character inspires in different ways. So, whether you're re-watching the entire show or are coming back to your favorite episodes, here are a few outstanding messages of advice from the show's most memorable characters to re-motivate you!
In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.
1. Finding out that they're going on tour
2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets
3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets
4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat
5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them
6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you
7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...
8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you
9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets
10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor
11. Managing to actually get the seats you want
12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it
13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true
14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)
If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
I view the summertime like I do New Years -- a fresh new start to myself and my behavior. I find myself far more productive and willing for change when the sun is shining and I haven't got a million class assignments to think about. Summertime is the perfect time to delve into new hobbies, new habits, and overall new memories in the making. Here are several habits and/or activities YOU should pick up this sunny season to make this summer yours:
Get Into DietingGiphy
And no, not necessarily to lose weight (Although, this is an option if it works best for you!) Look into healthier alternatives for the foods you already eat, swapping almond milk for milk or honey for sugar. Little changes like this in your diet will have your body thanking you in the long run.
Diet choice and exercise go hand in hand. It's never too late to get that "summer body" you've always wanted. Even if you don't invest in a gym membership, a walk around the neighborhood is absolutely free of charge. Just remind yourself that slow progress is better than no progress.
Get Into SkincareGiphy
Sunscreen. Sunscreen. Sunscreen! Now that the sun is out, the last thing you'll want is to let your skincare slip. That summer glow doesn't come so easily, so now's the time to invest in some skincare that'll rejuvenate yourself. Do your research and look into the best products for your skin type.
Get that summer chop at the salon you've been hesitating on for the longest time. Don't be afraid to even get some summer highlights as well! Get your nails done that perfect bright shade and buy yourself the cutest outfits. Now's the time for you to really go out and shine.
Pick Up A New HobbyGiphy
Read more, paint more, write more, anything. We often find ourselves way too busy during the school year to do anything we love. Summer however, is a different story. Busying yourself with something that makes you happy not only prevents you from being bored, but also boosts your mood throughout the season.
Get A JobGiphy
After a brutal school year, your money may be a little too low for your liking. Look into seasonal jobs to get your money up. You can never have too much money, and exercising good money/budget habits now will save you in the long run.
Make Plans With Your FriendsGiphy
Let's be honest, you have far fewer excuses to not hang out with your friends in the summer than in the school year. Catch up with those people you haven't spoken to in ages. The best way to spend a summer is to spend it with the people you love, so don't forget to maintain your relationships
I don't know about you, but I have the worst time drinking enough water per day. Virtually every function in your body requires water, and it's important to keep your water levels high, especially during such a warm season. Try carrying around a big water bottle at all times -- seeing water in front of you will have you more likely to drink it. Your skin, your body, and your mind will all thank you.
Travel Out To Places You Don't Normally GoGiphy
Whether it be a different country, state, town, or even area, exposing yourself to different environments can serve to be an extremely fun experience. Getting out of your comfort zone, staying in new places, and immersing yourself in the unknown are all different ways to
Practice Gratitude & WellnessGiphy
When all else fails, instead of focusing so hard on the new, reflect and admire the old. Whether you utilize mindfulness, or write down 5 things you're grateful for daily, there are millions of ways to practice gratitude and wellness. Find methods that work for you, and always remind yourself that
