8 Hacks For Becoming A Healthier You, For The Girl With No Free Time

Even if you don't consider yourself a super busy individual, we all get in grooves that are a downward spiral of mental and physical health. When you find yourself pushing your happiness aside, here are a few things you can add to your daily routine that can make all the difference.

1. Keep a journal

Of your favorite quotes, daily thoughts, or things you feel weighing on you.

2. Have in-home workout routines

The worst part about the gym is physically going, so having workouts handy you can do at home will cut your excuses in half.

3. Meditate

Even if you don't consider yourself a spiritual person, a beginners session can be as short as 3 minutes. These couple minutes to solely focus on yourself can turn your day around.

4. Carry a (reusable) water bottle with you 

The more water you drink, the better your body will feel. From helping with digestion to less grease on your face, you'll feel better within the day. Also, it doesn't involve you going out of your way at all! Woo.

5. Read up on happy news stories

Scrolling through Facebook to find cute videos almost counts! It's important to understand what's going on in the world- good or bad, but it's just as important to 'search for the good' (as google nicely put it).

6. Do a face mask while getting ready for bed

Or while scrolling through IG before bed (combine a bad habit with a good!)

7. Use a calendar for everything 

This one's for your sanity. When everything you need to do is in one place, life becomes a lot less stressful.

8. After a long day of studying, reward yourself 

Whether this is watching an episode of your favorite show, listening to music, or curl up in a blanket and do nothing.. giving yourself time to relax is just as important.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
