Improve Your Life With These 15 Healthy Habits

Improve Your Life With These 15 Healthy Habits

Greatly change your life in small, simple ways.


Improving your life can be a hard transition, but these 15 habits can help!

1. Wake up early

Although it may seem a like a very difficult task to wake up early, especially if you're one of those people that likes to sleep in longer, it has more pros than cons. Not only will you more likely be on time to class or to work, but once you make it a daily routine, you will find that you have more time to do things when starting the day earlier.

2. Prioritize

Find what's most important on your to-do list and do what needs to get done.

3. Be organized

Have a plan for the day or the week and follow through with it. Through planning and organization you give your life and responsibilities more structure, and this may reduce any overwhelming stress you have about the tasks you need to do.

4. Exercise

One of the best things you can do for your body is condition it. Dedicate some time to physically take care of yourself. The good thing is that there are so many ways to do so, whether through walking, running, playing sports, etc.

5. Eat healthy

Another aspect of maintaining physical wellness that ultimately affects every other area of your body and your performance in your daily tasks is food. Make sure to be conscious of what you eat and try to incorporate whole foods into your diet that energize you and improve your overall health.

6. Challenge yourself

Challenges are not always negative. In fact, they bring your life more excitement and enable you to expand your horizons and try new things. Don't be afraid to do something you've never done. The best way to get to know yourself is not through living within your comfort zone, so challenge yourself and see how high you can reach.

7. Be efficient

Don't stress over working hard. Instead, find ways in which you can work smart. Being efficient allows you to get more work done in a non-overbearing manner.

8. Stay engaged

In other words, be open to meeting new people and exploring new experiences. Be present in every moment and show a genuine interest in getting to know others. This will allow you to build strong relationships, deal with different types of people and discover what you like or don't like.

9. Be curious

Never stop learning about the world in which you live. Aim to be more knowledgeable about as much as you can.

10. Set goals for yourself

Setting realistic goals for yourself is a good way to establish clearly what it is that you want to achieve, and it can motivate you to not only pursue your short-term goals but also create bigger ones.

11. Save your money 

Be wary of what you spend your money on. Sometimes we buy things that we don't really need, so it's important to make sure to think before you decide to buy anything.

12. Show gratitude

Being grateful has a lot of powerful in your life and in the lives of others. It allows you to focus on the good, and this can be very uplifting.

13. Have fun

Life isn't always about work, work and more work. Having fun is part of a healthy, balanced and happy life, so never feel like you're missing out on any responsibilities when you're hanging out. In fact, having fun should be one of those responsibilities.

14.  Read

Reading is one of the best ways to gain knowledge about any given topic, and it's something that definitely has the power to change the way you think.

15.  Relax

It's so vital to find time to unwind and simply relax. We find ourselves in a cycle of studying, work, and other obligations that we often forget to just chill out. Relaxing in the form of meditation especially is a good way to rejuvenate and temporarily forget about the rest of the world. By relaxing, you will find yourself recharged and more able to work effectively.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
