10 Simple Ways To Show Yourself  Love This Month

From chicken nuggets to trying something new- try these things every day to express self love

10 Simple Ways To Show Yourself  Love This Month

Take small steps each day to show yourself how great you really are.

1. Sit in silence

Sit in silence and meditate on how far you've come in life. Meditate on the thought that you are amazing.

2. Splurge 

Whether that's on coffee, a manicure, or a new pillow for your couch in the living room- splurge in a simple way that allows you to feel that you are working for more than rent and tuition.

3. Do something bold

From taking a group exercise class to painting your nails neon orange, be bold in one way or another that allows your personality shine.

4. Sit in the sun

With summer coming to an end, take a moment to just sit outside and bask in the warm sunshine.

5. Avoid restrictions and limitations

From food to going to the beach - live your life this month with no limitations on your happiness and satisfaction.

6. Put the phone down

And stop comparing yourself to other girls on Instagram. Put the phone down and learn to love being in your own presence for the time being.

7. Eat the pizza (and maybe the ice cream, too)

Because life is too short to obsess over calories and work outs than to enjoy in moderation, your favorite foods on a summer day.

8. Change up your routine

By adding in morning workouts, meditating before bed, or simply waking up earlier. Switching up small things in your daily routine can help you feel less bored with your life- trust me.

9. Take up a new hobby

Boxing, knitting, reading,.. the options are endless.

10. Thank yourself

Thank yourself for showing up today and doing everything you've done. Give yourself gratitude and compassion- you've made it through another day.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
