Last month was very eventful for Jonas Brothers fans, to say the least. Their documentary "Chasing Happiness" was released on Amazon Prime on June 4 (I'm still so emotional about it, by the way, I strongly recommend), their first album in roughly 10 years titled "Happiness Begins" was released on June 7, and they began performing live on June 13. In honor of all this, here are 11 Jonas Brothers song lyrics that everyone should live by.

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".
- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.
- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.
- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.
- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.
The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
I've realized that being nice to myself is actually really important.
I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.
Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
Social media can be a helpful, positive place!
It's no secret that social media can be harmful to our mental health. The barrage of heavily edited photos of Instagram models that we see every day only fuels our insecurities. There is a good side to social media, though. It allows us to keep up with friends and family across the globe. Plus, it provides a platform for mental health experts. Listed below are five therapists on Instagram who will fill your feed with motivational quotes and positive infographics.
Ongoing research is further promoting the fact that engaging in a proper diet and exercise regimen can alleviate many symptoms!
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder that affects young women, especially those of reproductive age. Women with PCOS often exhibit symptoms ranging from increased levels of the male hormone androgen along with cysts in their ovaries. However, ongoing research is further promoting the fact that engaging in a proper diet and exercise regimen can alleviate many symptoms! Here are 25 things I found out about PCOS.
I realized I need to stop blaming myself for staying single. The problem wasn't me. It was you.
I told you I was going to be okay if you said what was on your mind, but honestly, nothing could've prepared me for the words that came out of your mouth. After getting off of the phone with you, I burst into tears. Those words shattered my heart and continuously repeated in my head.
It's okay to take a break sometimes.
Whether the stress of adjusting to online school or losing a job is getting you down, we all know that the effects of this pandemic have been nothing but stressful. While everyone is focusing on not getting sick, finding a job, and keeping up with school, no one has really found time to decompress. High levels of continued stress can not only lead to physical health issues but mental health issues as well. To make it a little easier, here are some ways you can de-stress during a time like this while staying safe and socially distanced.
The absence of others isn't something to be afraid of.
I used to regard loneliness as this misshapen emptiness — one that existed for the sole purpose of being temporarily filled by other human beings, ones who we convince ourselves to make some curious, broken, part of us a bit more normal. A bit more whole. As simple as A + B, to evade loneliness, be incessantly social.
This may be the greatest non-coffee way to get your fall on.
Everyone says pumpkin spice is the superior fall flavor, and I mean, I get it. It is a VERY seasonal flavoring (like pumpkin spice in March? I'll pass). However, personally, I like apple more. It's cozy and it reminds me of being a kid again.
To all of the brides struggling right now, try to see the beauty in it.
Planning a wedding is hard.
