Advice is a very tricky thing. It can be both positive or negative, good or bad, helpful or useless. But getting advice means that person cares for you enough to try and make your life easier. Everyone receives and gives advice often, but they are two very different things. Sometimes giving advice seems to be much easier than receiving it.

So, here are 11 pieces of advice you may hear that you should absolutely apply.

1. Do what feels right

Listen to your gut. Don't let outside distractions change what you think is right or what is best for you.

2. Always take time for yourself

Taking time for yourself is crucial to knowing who you really are. It gives your mind and body a time to restore and relax.

3. Life will never be fair

Once you have fully accepted this, it will truly change your view. Life will never, ever be fair and others will always have something you don't and there is nothing wrong with that.

4. Never assume the worst

Never, never, never! You never know what the future will hold, and going into something with a negative attitude will only make it worse. It could be the best thing that has happened to you.

5. Be patient

Patience is key to just about everything in life. Patience will set you apart from others in this world.

6. Trust your gut

If your gut is telling you this is a bad idea, it probably is. Intuition is almost always correct.

7. Love yourself before loving others

If you don't truly love yourself, it is impossible to fully give your love to someone else. Self-love is the key to success.

8. Never give up on what you want

Just because your dream seems far off, doesn't mean that they are impossible to reach. Work hard for what you want to achieve.

9. Pay attention

Always be aware, the more you pay attention in life the more you will learn.

10. Don't worry about what other people think

This is really the downfall of human society. Everyone is so focused on others opinions that they loose who they truly are. Be yourself because there is nobody out there just like you.

11. Always believe in yourself

What you see is what you get. When you truly believe in yourself confidence will show, and confidence will get you anywhere you want to be.

Advice can come in a variety of ways, but if you've ever heard these pieces of advice, take them.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
