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!

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

1397

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.
