Make Sure To Think About Your Mental Health

Easing stress in your household is easier than you think.

Make Sure To Think About Your Mental Health

With finals coming around the corner I find myself wanting to pull out my hair. I find my best friend crying over one single exam that will determine the rest of her life. I also find myself biting my fingernails in anxiety trying to tame my stress level. This got me thinking, I need to deal with my stress better.

I started doing these 6 things to help me!

1. Face mask

After a long day of work, school, or just a stressful day put on a facemask and put all your worries away. Pamper yourself just for 15 minutes and once you take off your mask, you'll feel like a new you.

2. Bubble bath

Skip the shower, and draw a warm bath filled with bubbles and smells. Sit there and don't think about anything but you and let all your stress escape. I think this is one of my favorite remedies. I usually pair my bubble baths with a cheap little bath bomb that you can find at Walmart, Target, or CVS.

3. Music

Start your morning off right, get up a little early open the doors and windows and blast some nice fun music that you can dance your heart away too. If you start your day happy then chances are, the rest of your day will be too!

4. Essential oils diffuser

If you have no idea what this is, you should. This is probably one of my favorite things in my house, in fact, I have two. All you do is plug it in the wall, put whatever essential oil you chose inside, and then add some water and turn it on. Certain scents can help with certain things, its all about what you like. My favorite is lemon oil it relaxes me beyond belief. I would definitely invest in one of these.

5. Clean

I know this probably sounds dreadful, but trust me it feels kind of nice. Cleaning out your room can help with your stress and eliminate that stress and anxiety when you walk through your room. Once you've cleaned out a little it feels empowering to throw things away that you don't need in your life.

6. Candle and wine

I think this one is everyone's favorite, just because it's so simple. Yes, you heard me, grab your favorite cozy blanket, a bottle of wine, and light that candle you have sitting in your room. Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy some TV. Turn off that phone that you don't need and that is causing you stress.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
