5 Ways You Can Be Unbreakable
Start writing a post

Adulting is hard. We have so much on our plates that we can barely see what lies in front of us. It is during these times that we might forget what it is like to not be stressed and that's when we let our lives break us down. Here are five words of advice from the unbreakable woman, Kimmy Schmidt, to help you out when life becomes a little too much.

1. Slow down.

Don't think about everything that you have to do within the next three weeks. Just keep moving and take it ten seconds at a time. Trust me, being in the present and taking things in one at a time helps reduce a lot of unnecessary stress.

2. Stay optimistic.

My family has a saying (that I think we stole from Jimmy Buffett): "Attitude is Latitude." If we are positive, then our metaphorical life plane will continue to soar without many problems. But if we let stress and emotion cloud our judgement and become more pessimistic, then we are likely to crash. So just keep Kimmying.

3. Listen to your gut.

Both literally and metaphorically. If you are in need of a food break, then let yourself go and get that food. Also, if you feel like you shouldn't do something or that you should then maybe you should listen to your body and then go from there in a way that makes you feel comfortable.

4. Be confident, even if you just look it.

If you look confident about something, then others (yourself included) may start to believe that what you are doing is good. If you think that your work is absolute garbage all the time, you really aren't going to be happy about it whether or not it is actually good.

5. Don't let life keep you down.

Embrace who you are and what you do and just keep going. Because life gets hard, but it doesn't stop. So why should you?

Now get back out there and be unbreakable!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget.
