We've all learned a lot from our teenage years, but there's still so much life to look forward to. When I turned 20, I promised myself that I would accomplish more of my goals and would be more open to experiences and honestly, just find ways to live my life better. Now that I'm 20, this next decade is where life really picks up and gets "roarin'."

1. Take more risks. Be more open. Live in the moment.

Don't live with "what ifs". Stay out late, make stupid decisions... (just don't lose your common sense). Don't be afraid of what "could happen" rather focus on enjoying yourself, even if it means doing something stupid and laughing about it later.

2. Appreciate the little things in life.

They're not always noticeable and we all take advantage of them too much.

3. Let go of what you can't control and let life happen.

Sometimes life's just a b***h.

4. Be more adventurous.

Make a day trip somewhere fun. Do something you've never done before. Travel the world. Try a food you never have. Join a new club/organization because it sounds cool. Learn when to say yes instead of no.

5. Be more decisive.

Speak up for yourself. Be your own advocate. It's okay to say no. No one else knows what you want/need except for you. Take a day for yourself or surround yourself with friends. You're not going to be alright if you don't feel like yourself.

6. We're in college. Please for Pete's sake don't act like you're in high school.

Grow up.

7. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

You're your own best advocate. It's okay to ask for help when you need it.

8. Exercise. 

You'll thank yourself later. Or don't. It's your life.

9. Thank those in your life.

We wouldn't be who we are without our friends and family. Don't take friends or family for granted either. More importantly, don't wait for others who don't wait for you. Boy bye.

10. Don't pretend life is better than it is.

It's okay to struggle.

11. Create traditions.

Whether it's with friends or family, they're something that'll give you a reason to see family and/or friends every year even when life gets busy and hectic.

12. Don't be afraid of meeting people.

Whether it's through friends, at a party, in a class, or an organization meeting people is something that brings the potential for new relationships (not just romantic ones).

13. Take every advantage you can to put your best foot forward.

Whether academically, career-wise, or in your personal life- do what's best for you. Make yourself known to professors (past and present), employers, and within your future or current career.

 14. Don't let other's judgment stop you from living your life.

Enough said.

15. Live life in the moment, but don't forget to capture the moments that matter.

Take photos. Lots of them.

16. Learn to love yourself as you are.

After all, there's only one you in this world.

17. Love has its own timing.

18. Learn when you need to recognize that you're wrong.

But also stand up for yourself when you know you're right (but be gracious). No one wants someone yelling at them attempting to prove that they're right (even when they're wrong).

19. Work towards your goals and accomplish them.

Goals aren't any good if they don't have a result- whether it's good or bad.

20. Embrace life.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

2099

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

2733

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.

Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
