Take the time to reevaluate certain situations and how to act in them.

A lot of us tend to forget that sometimes, you need to take a minute and relax your mind and body. Nowadays, people are typically so busy that they barely have time to even sleep (Seriously, some people get a total of 4-7 hours of sleep over the course of 2 days). Not only is that awful for your body, but your mind is also negatively affected. Society has shifted to where getting pretty much no sleep and working endlessly is the norm.

Even though many people struggle with time management, little changes over time can have a longer lasting positive effect on the mind and body. It sounds slightly silly and a little obvious, but we all need to slow down when things seem to not be going our way, or when we feel "out of it". Taking a moment to reevaluate what you're doing and how you're doing it could really help with getting things done more efficiently.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
