Some ways in order to fight against exhaustion.

Four Ways To Combat Student Exhaustion

As students, whether we are in high school or college, we have all been at the point where we have been on the brink of mental and physical exhaustion. Sometimes, our schoolwork can interfere with are social and family life as well as our jobs and other commitments, hindering those relationships since education is a big part in advancing up the social and American ladder. But, again, as students we know how to manage our time and juggle the thing we call life as best as we can. Though there are times when are gauge is on empty, and so we all needs ways in order to distress and get back into the groove after a well needed break. So, I am going to a few ways that we can do this.

1. Relaxation.

Now, the first method is pretty obvious and is something that is easy to do. Relax. Grab a good book, watch one of your favorite shows, or anything that helps you let the stress you are feeling go away.

2. Hang out with some friends.

We have all had that moment where we decided over schoolwork than going out and having a good time with friends. Its our education that comes first before social interaction is something that we tell ourselves sometimes. But, when you do get all the work that you do then to get done, then go out with those friends or family and just enjoy being with people that care about you and having fun to forget about the overwhelming pressure of grades and assignments.

3. Don't Procrastinate.

Even though we don't like to admit it, we all procrastinate at times. Especially on our schoolwork. However, if we create a schedule of what we have to get done, and do them on specific days or times then we will be able to have more free time for oneself.

4. Sleep.

Sleep, for college students, is a luxury that we all treasure. To be able to go to bed and rest, knowing that we have everything done is a pleasant feeling. We will be able to feel more rejuvenated and alert for the next day ahead.

These are only a few ways in which someone can fight against the exhaustion we all feel, but we can all figure out how to balance the very aspect of our lives and be able to efficiently have a successful life.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
