Self Care Tips That Will Get You Through The End Of The School Year
Start writing a post

As the school year closes it is so important to continue to take care of yourself every day. Final exams can be super difficult and stressful, but taking time during your day to practice self-care can get you through it. A little bit can go a long way, so remember that any progress is still progress! We all get overwhelmed sometimes, but it is how you deal with that emotion that matters. Be patient and loving towards yourself always. Caring for your own body and mental health should always be a top priority.

I hope you have a great end of the school year!

1. Take frequent study breaks

Don't forget to give your mind a rest while studying for your exams. Taking a short break to focus your mind on something else can relieve major stress.

2.  Treat your skin

Pick a night during your busy week to nourish your skin. Indulge in products like face masks, oils, and lotions. Your skin will thank you.

3. Try something you've been wanting to do

During your free time, try an activity or new place that you have never experienced. It can be a good stress reliever and you might find something new you really like. Consider one of my personal favorite hobbies: bullet journaling!

4. Clean your room

Cleaning is a quite calming activity and it just might help you clear your mind as well. A clean room can help you feel more productive and encourage you to keep getting tasks done.

5. Declutter your papers

The end of the year is the perfect time to get rid of all the papers from the semester you've been holding onto. Empty out your folders to prepare for the next fall.

6. Do a quick workout

Stretch out your muscles and help your body out by getting at least one workout a week.

7. Start a happy song playlist

Collect some of your favorite mood improving music to listen to whenever you're stressed out or feeling down.

8.  Unplug for awhile

Take some time away from your phone to relax and give your brain a break from processing all your notifications.

9.  Make exciting summer plans

Plan something over the summer that you can look forward to as you're finishing school. It can help provide you from motivation to get through the end of the school year.

10.  Spend time with friends

People often travel over the summer, or if you're in college return to their hometown, so it's a good idea to spend some time with them before the school year ends. It can also help you become less stressed and happier.

11. Eat a good breakfast everyday

Fuel your body in the morning to help feel more awake and more productive throughout the day.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
