Summer Bucket List Ideas
Start writing a post

As soon as school gets out, summer sounds like practically the best thing to exist. However, for those of us unfortunate enough to not be going anywhere during these few months, summer can be insanely boring, and most days are spent sitting around doing absolutely nothing but complaining about how bored you are. During one of those days, I decided to compile my ultimate summer bucket list to refer to whenever I have one of those "bored out of my mind" moments and share them to anyone else who may be suffering from nothing to do (besides summer work of course, but who's gonna do that until the day before school starts again?).

5 At-Home Therapy Tips You Need, No Matter What Your Therapy Routine Is

Whether you're in a Zoom session or live-chatting, make sure your home therapy space is good to go.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire. Having a safe space to discuss what's going on in your life, worries you have, and struggles you're facing has become a very normal thing for individuals' mental health.
