Dancing alone in your bedroom is seriously therapeutic.

19 Pieces Of Advice On My 19th Birthday
Hannah Puckett

As of this month, I am officially 19 years old, and it is crazy that my time as a teenager is almost over. It seems like just yesterday I was a 13-year-old with bright blue braces, obsessed with Doctor Who, and learning how to put on mascara for the first time. But despite the inevitable awkwardness that comes with being 13, I love the girl I was then. And I am especially in love with how I grew and changed into the girl I am now- a 19-year old who forgets to wear her retainers, is obsessed with Rex Orange County, and is learning how to be an adult for the first time. Every year of life means a whole year of learning new things about the world, other people, and yourself, which is just so, so beautiful. So in celebration of my 19 years of life, here's a list of 19 pieces of advice I learned along the way.

1. Talk in silly voices

2. Let yourself daydream more often

3. If you want the coffee, buy the coffee

4. Take more walks, and look at the grass and the trees and the clouds

5. Exfoliate and moisturize

6. Light a candle every now and then

7. Drink more water

8. Let yourself cry

9. Take a cold shower every once in a while

10. Dance alone in your room to your favorite song and sing along as loudly as you can

11. Take more pictures of things that make you happy

12. Stretch

13. Have more conversations with yourself

14. Take a moment to close your eyes and listen to your breath and the world around you

15. Smile at strangers more often

16. Write down your feelings so they take up space on paper instead of in your head

17. Drive with the windows down and the music loud

18. Do more art

19. Be kind
