A Quick Self-Care Guide

Life can bring around some very stressful things that we can all use a break from. If you're overcoming some tough situations or even just finishing up on finals, these are some tips that you can easily do at any time!

​1. Do a face mask or hair mask.

Not a need, a MUST

Whether it's a DIY or one from your favorite store, sit back and pop one on. I normally apply either a face mask or hair mask on while cleaning and doing chores, but it's one simple act that your body will for sure thank you for! Some of my personal favorite face masks are the Mint Julep Masque and the Clearing Sweet Tea + Lemon Peel-Off Clay Mask. As for hair masks, I look for products with a little coconut oil for a more hydrating feel!

2. Make time for friends.

Friends always make things better

Giphy

If you find yourself bouncing back and forth, bring yourself back down to Earth just by hanging out with some friends! It's okay to just take a break and relax. It could be by grabbing a bite to eat, watching a movie, or just hanging out to enjoy each other's company. Friends can always make the mood better!

3. Listen to your favorite playlist.

JAM OUT

Giphy

Throwing on headphones and playing some of your favorite tunes could bring your mood up from 0 to 100 real quick! Whether it's jamming out to my Spotify playlist of favorites or something thrown together by others, it can always turn my mood around. One of my favorites is a Hawaiian playlist to always drag me away from real life here in Jersey for a bit! Click here to check it out!

4. Stay hydrated.

I know this may be redundant, but this is probably the EASIEST ways to care for yourself! Drinking water and staying hydrated during the day goes a long way without even thinking about it. Some quick tips might be just carrying around a personal water bottle to continuously fill up!

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month.
