Watermelon is the best fruit

Don't get me wrong, I love all types of fruits! However, I've always had a soft spot for watermelons. They are just so delicious, juicy, and fulfilling. Here are some of the ways that I think that this fruit is the best one of them all.

They are amazingly hydrating 


Don't have a water bottle? Just go ahead and take a big bite out of your watermelon and your thirst should go away. I mean the word water is included within the word watermelon.

Do you even lift bro?


Doesn't it suck when you work out hardcore and the next day you can't even walk properly? According to a recent study, potassium and magnesium-rich juice of the watermelon has the ability to relieve muscle soreness. This means that watermelons will help you walk normally the next day after your workout.

They're your low calorie best friend 


Did you know that watermelons have a very low-calorie count? They aren't just really good, but you can enjoy them without worrying about all the calories you take in. According to LiveScience, they're actually one of the lowest calorie fruits.

Arts and crafts is a big possibility 


Watermelons are not just for eating. They are also a good canvas for anyone who is good at carving. These fruits are a great way to express your creativity.

This fruit demonstrates color at its finest 


Watermelons are so cute because they have a unique red to them. Their base color is green, and these two colors compliment each other so well. I don't know about you, but I am a big fan of the colors it contains.

Variety is a given 


There are so many ways that you can enjoy your watermelon. There isn't just one way or the right way to eat it. For example, you can cut it by slices, cut it up in cubes, blend it, or incorporate it in juices.

Who said it was just made for eating?


If you didn't know, now you do. People tend to use watermelons as organic scrubs for their body. You can enjoy the hydration of the fruits once you apply it on.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about this majestic fruit. For some people, it is just a regular fruit, but it is my number one fruit on my grocery list.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
