All The Things You Have To Do When You Visit Nashville, TN

September 17, 2018, is officially International Country Music Day and there is no better way to celebrate than going to Nashville, Tennessee which is considered the home of country music. If you love this genre, this is a must-see place for you to go.

Here is a list of some of the things you should do to get the most out of your trip to Nashville.

1. Walk through the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

The museum shows various artifacts and history starting from country music's beginnings all the way to now. Learning more about the roots of country music was really neat. My favorite part was looking at various clothing items from stars such as Dolly Parton and the original scraps of paper where Alan Jackson created one of his most famous songs.

2. Take a tour through the Grand Ole Opry

There is a video at the beginning of the tour that explains how the Grand Ole Opry got started and about the process of reconstructing the new building. While in town, you can look to see if there are any artists that will be playing there during your stay. If there are, you can buy tickets to see the show which is an amazing experience. It is an honor for artists to be invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and is an accomplishment many aspiring musicians dream of.

Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert, and Luke Combs are just a few of many that have had the opportunity to perform there.

3. Go downtown to listen to live music and enjoy food or drinks at the world famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge.

This is the only building painted purple on what is referred to as Broadway. There are also a variety of other bars and honky-tonks located downtown where you can enjoy upcoming artists and have a great time.

4. Hattie B’s Hot Chicken is a very well-known restaurant to both the locals and people visiting.

The only thing to keep in mind is that there can sometimes be a very long wait to eat. This restaurant focuses on making chicken and is famous for the extremely hot chicken that they serve. Try it if you dare!

5. Walk to the Gulch which is right outside of Downtown.

This neighborhood area is considered to be very trendy with a variety of shopping options, cafes, and food choice within walking distance of each other. When at the Gulch, make sure to stop by and eat at Biscuit Love. This is a wonderful restaurant that serves a variety of brunch foods. My brother ordered chicken and waffles that was amazing and a great portion. It was the best breakfast I ever had and was definitely worth the wait in line!

We went during December right before Christmas and an employee at Biscuit Love offered everyone free coffee so we could keep warm while waiting outside.

If you want to experience what it's like to be in a country music town, then this is the place to visit when you get a chance. Go ahead and visit Nashville to see all that this town has to offer!

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
