My Favorite 5 Self Care Tips

Self care is something that is very important to all of us and these are some of my favorite self care things to do.

My Favorite 5 Self Care Tips

Self-care is something that helps us to feel better but it is also something that isn't talked about enough. Many people still get shamed for wanting some self-care in their lives and that's what I am trying to express. So, these tips are something that we all can use and even help us to find new ones as well.

1. Bubble Baths

Baths in general are a way that many women unwind after a hard day, letting themselves soak in the warm bath water after a hard day. Baths can be anything from simple to extravagant. You can add bath bombs, bath salts, bath bars, flower petals and so much more to allow yourself to feel the best version of yourself. This kind of self-care helps me to wind down after a long day and just be able to sit in my thoughts, which is something that we all need to do at times.

2. Face Masks

Face masks are so much fun! You can do face masks to help your skin with all the problems that it may have and even feel better in your own skin. It's so much fun to find new recipes for homemade face masks and do them with your friends. This is one of my favorite self-care tips because it allows me to be creative and helps my skin feel better. It's a way for me to help myself feel and look better.

3. Painting My Nails

Now getting your nails done is one thing, but painting them at home just adds another layer to the self-care genre. Now I am a broke college student and so I would rather paint my nails at home, which allows me to have control over my own nails. I love being able to just delicately paint my nails and spend that time with myself, even if they don't turn out 100% every time.

4. Journaling

Journaling is something that allows us to get our feelings out on paper and not allow us to hold our feelings inside. This is one of my favorite self-care tips because it has helped me through the hardest times of my life. It allows for us to express ourselves creatively, express our feelings and so much more with the power of words. It can do so much to not bottle our feelings on the inside and express them on the outside.

5. Listen To Music

Listening to music has been something that I have just recently picked up on for self-care. I love getting in the car and just blasting my music, it helps me to get my feelings out and just free my mind. All you need to do is find the perfect song or playlist, which is something I know we all need help with.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
