We all live our lives sleeping until the very last second until we need to actually get up. As a college student, we strongly believe there is not enough time in the day to get everything done.

Well, I’m going to tell you seven reasons why you should get up early in the morning.

1.You time


If you are a busy person, you can use this time to really spend time with yourself before you have to go out and deal with things. You use this time for however you want to spend it. Meditation, watching your favorite show, reading a book, whatever you want to do. This is your time!

2. Get stuff done


If you have so much to do in a week and you feel there isn’t time in a day to get it all done, you can use the time that you wake up to do it. Doing some of the things that will take the longest time is what could be ideal for this time. It’ll wake you up and get you even more prepared to conquer the day.

3. Go to the gym


Working on your health is very important, but when you have more on your plate and errands to run, its hard to find that good time to go the gym. This would be a perfect time to go to the gym and get that workout in for the day.

4. Take your time getting ready



There are a lot of times when some of us who work early in the morning looking our bare minimum. We put on the most basic outfit and just take it as it is. Well within this time, you can really pick out an outfit and take a shower and still take your time getting ready. You can look your absolute best and rocking the day!

5. Meal prepping


I don’t meal prep, but this could be the perfect time to meal prep for the week. Make your meals on an early Monday morning. Make a list on Sunday and then look at it on Monday morning and prepare it. What better way to start your week off right?

6. Good for your mental health


Waking up early helps you stress less and how you start of your day impacts how the rest of your day is going to go. Wake up relaxed and smooth, that’s how your day will go. You won't be rushing around your place trying to make it on time for work or class.

7. You’ll be even more happy with life


Most people who wake up early and live their life seem to be more happy than someone who sleeps in. They are living their best life and I feel like that starts with getting up early and getting ready to conquer the day.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
