Ways To Be Lazy, Yet Effective From Day to Day

We have all had those days that we really just don't want to do anything. They typically consist of lounging around in sweats and eating Ramen or leftover pizza for all three meals. I usually finish a whole package of Oreos or Hot Cheetos during these days (or both depending on how gross I want to feel later on. These lazy days don't have to be completely worthless, believe it or not, you can actually get stuff done without leaving your house! Here are eight things you can do when you just really don't want to see the outside world.

1. Clean your room!

We all have that one chair that collects piles of clothes, shoes, trash, or basically whatever you don't feel like putting away. Instead of laying in your bed the whole day, go through that pile and sort it out! It will make your room look so much better and will give you somewhere to sit on other than your bed. You also may find something you thought you lost!

2. Catch up on school work.

It's easier to suggest doing work on a lazy day than actually doing it. To get motivated, plan on rewarding yourself once you finish your work. Also, turn the TV off while you are trying to get everything done, trust me it will improve your work and will get rid of any distractions.

3. Organize your pantry/ fridge.

Coming from someone who had a hobby of organizing her family's pantry when she was younger, I can tell you, this is actually a lot of fun. While doing this, throw out anything that is old or no one eats anymore. You really feel like your life is put together when your food is organized. Your pantry or fridge will end up looking a little bit like this:

4. Treat yo self.

Treat yo self! Nothing is better than taking a long, hot shower, putting on a face and hair mask, painting your nails, and finishing it all with a blowout while doing some online shopping. You will feel like a beautiful, clean goddess and your skin will be thanking you for the next few days.

5. Read a book.

Yes I know reading isn't everyone's favorite thing to do in this world, it's definitely not mine, but when you find the right book it's actually pretty fun. Plus you won't feel as bad for watching "A Real Housewives of New Jersey" marathon for eight hours straight if you follow it up with a book.

6. Workout!

No, you don't have to go to the gym to get a good workout! Get off the couch and get fit! There are plenty of easy at home workouts that you can find on Instagram, and you can even watch TV while doing most of them. The best part is, is that you don't even have to see anyone you know while getting all sweaty and gross! It's truly a "get the best of both worlds" to workout in the comfort of your own home.

7. Cook!

With your newly organized pantry and fridge, find something good to cook. You don't even have to be the best chef- no one is eating your food but you!

8. Call your grandma.

I know you probably haven't spoken to her in a while and nothing excites grandma's more than getting a random call from their grandchild. Don't you want to make your grandmother happy?

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.

I don't want to point fingers or call anyone out, but it seems as though since the school year came to a close and summer officially started, more and more people began to care less and less about coronavirus (COVID-19).

I understand that eventually you have to get on with your life and cannot live in isolation forever, but people are still dying, cases are still increasing, and COVID is clearly not going anywhere for the time being.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

5 Things That 'Shameless' Got Wrong About Bipolar Disorder

There is so much more than Ian and Monica lead viewers to believe.

"Shameless" is a hit television series that airs across the world, for my own personal viewing on Netflix. While the show is a major hit, people aren't talking about the issues in the portrayal in the "mental health" category. Ian and Monica are both pretty important characters with bipolar disorder (BD). There are, however, five major flaws with what their bipolar looks like.

Dear Grandma,

I wish my words could adequately explain how much I miss seeing your smile and hearing your laugh. You were such a bright ray of sunshine in my life and now that you're gone, I can't help but remember all the times we had together.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.
