Three Self-Care Tips for Winter Break

Give yourself a present this holiday season.

Three Self-Care Tips for Winter Break

Don't be fooled by the recent phenomenon of oddly warm weather; it's officially Winter Break. You made it! I'm proud of you. It's time to de-stress from finals week and take some time to take care of yourself. You deserve it!

1. Take yourself on a date.

Give yourself some quality alone time. Put as much thought into it as you would if you were taking the bae out on a date. You have been stuffed inside crowded and smelly libraries for the past couple weeks. Do some things that you enjoy to make you happy. Take yourself to the movies and see a flick that you've always wanted to check out. Get a bomb recipe off the internet and make yourself a great meal. Make a solid Spotify playlist and take a walk through a cute park. Enjoy the scenery. It'll be the most fulfilling date you'll have ever been on. Who knows what you like better than you?

2. Have a DIY spa day.

Take a day to give your body and mind some cleansing. You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars and go to some random spa around the way to make yourself feel good. This is an article about de-stressing! You have got all the things that you need right in your domain. Here's an easy to follow YouTube video to have a relaxing spa day in the comfort of your own home.

3. Explore your interests.

School has been one of your top priorities ever since the summertime. Now, with that out the way, you've got enough time to dive into something that your passionate about. Want to binge watch that one series on Netflix you've been eyeing? Go for it. Buy your favorite snacks and have a Netflix and Chill session where you don't have to share the goodies. Want to take up a creative hobby like drawing or jewelry-making to fulfill your creative spirit? Have at it. Create the world's next trend. Give yourself the opportunity to attempt the things that you've always been interested in. Now that you don't have to worry about the next test creeping up on you the world is your oyster.

I hope one of my tips inspired you to do something to benefit yourself this holiday season. I know it's supposed to be all about giving, but take the time to give to yourself as well. Happy Holidays!

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
