We all get stressed sometimes and recently I've found that a bible wrote can relieve my stress and give some well needed motivation. It's 2019 and time to be our best selves.

1. Psalm 37:23-24

"The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand."

To me this says, "don't stress because God's got your back." It's so easy to get caught up in work and school and forget that God's always looking out for you! This is so comforting to think about.

2. Romans 8:18

"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us."

You can't have a rainbow if there's no rain first. We go through tests in life, our bad days make us appreciate the good days even more. Any suffering now will be worth it in the future.


3. Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

God has his own plan for all of us. It can be frustrating when things in life don't seem to be going your way but everything happens for a reason. If you trust God's intentions, you'll be okay.

4. John 15:13

"Greater love has no one than his own: to lay one's life for one's friends."

Sometimes you may forget how much God loves you. No matter how you feel or what you're going through, you're never alone.

5. Philippians 4:13

"I can do all things through him who strengthens me"

If you're ever overwhelmed, remember that you can do anything! This quote is a great confidence booster. You can do anything you put your mind to.



6. 1 Peter 5:7

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

There's no need to be anxious. Instead, be faithful. "The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety." It has also been said, "Worry is unbelief in disguise."

7. Luke 6:31

"Do to others as you would have them do to you."

We all probably learned this in kindergarten or sometime around there, "Treat others the way you want to be treated." Several years have past since kindergarten but the quote is still relevant. Everyone deserves to be treated with nothing but kindness, sometimes we forget this.

8. Ezra 10:4 

Rise up... take courage and do it."

This is another go to quote for motivation. If you're struggling with something or having trouble getting started, just do it! Trust God's plan. Go out today and conquer what is holding you back.

9. Psalm 34:4

"I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."

When I think of this quote, I remember that there is truly nothing to worry about. Worrying about an issue is a waste of time, worrying gets you nowhere. There is also nothing to fear. If you keep your faith and trust the process, everything will workout in the end.

10. Colossians 3:2

"Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things."

This is probably my favorite quote of this whole list! It's so easy to be caught up in the materialistic world and want to have the best clothes and fashion sense but these things don't even matter. When you're older and looking back on life, you're not going to even remember the types of shoes you wore when you were young. Nothing we have now is permanent, it's all temporary. So why be so obsessed with things that won't matter later?

11. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing"

We should all be encouraging each other as much as possible. The world would be a better place if there was no more negativity. We can help by lifting others up. The simplest thing can make someones entire day.

Even if you've never read a page of the Bible in your life, I hope these verses can bring you positivity. Remembering your faith can relieve all stress and bring you great happiness. Stay faithful, hopeful, and confident in God!

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

30502

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
