15 Leslie Knope Quotes That Will Make Every 'Parks And Rec' Fan Feel Like A Beautiful Tropical Fish
NBC

No matter where you are in life or what is happening, I have come to find one thing to be true through it all: there is a Leslie Knope quote to get you through anything.

"Parks and Recreation" was for sure a gem that will live on through its hilarious gifs and fans who re-watch it every few months (like myself) for a long, long time, but the true wisdom of the show lies in the words of this incredible colorful rainbow tiger of a woman (nope, it only sounds good when Leslie does it).

"I care. I care a lot. It's kinda my thing."

Not caring about anything is not cool. Caring and being conscious of things is cool. Okay?

"We have to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, and work. But work has to come third."

Take time for the important things in life and spend time with those you love and eat all the waffles you want because life is too short not to.

"I am big enough to admit that I am often inspired by myself."

Work hard! Inspire yourself! You are a beautiful talented capable powerhouse!

"Why would anyone ever eat anything besides breakfast food?"

Seriously. Probably the wisest one.

"If you want to bake a pie, that's great. If you want to have a career, that's great too."

You can do whatever you want in life. Don't ever feel pressured to be someone just because it's who others think you should be.

"I am a goddess, a glorious female warrior."

Wear your metaphorical tiara everywhere, always, you magical breathtaking princess of a woman.

"I stand behind my decision to avoid salad and all other disgusting things."

A nightmare? I'm sorry did you mean salad?

"When you love something, you don't threaten it. You don't punish it. You fight for it. You take care of it. You put it first."

Love whatever you love with as much intensity as Leslie loves Ann.

"If I seem too passionate, it's because I am."

Passionate is good!! All the time!!

"One person's annoying is another person's inspiring and heroic."

Be über passionate about what you're uber passionate about and don't let others make you feel like you don't have every single right to be uber passionate about it!

"Do it. Fierce. Power."

"I have the most valuable commodity in America: the blind, stubborn belief that I am doing what is right."

Do what you feel is right, always, and if you need that extra powerful boost to do it, get bangs.

"What I hear when I'm being yelled at are people caring loudly at me."

New outlook on being yelled at.

"Guys love it when you can show them you are better than they are at something they love."

It's true. They do, and even if they don't, do it anyway.

"You are a beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk ox."

You are beautiful and can do ANYTHING. ALWAYS.

See what I mean, there's a Leslie Knope quote for just about everything, but honestly and seriously, channel your inner Leslie everyday and you can do just about anything.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

8088

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

4851

- 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.
