College students choosing tea over coffee?? Crazy, I know!

Why I'd Choose Tea Over Coffee Any Day

Let me start out by saying that I am not here to say that there is anything wrong with coffee, in fact I used to love coffee (be addicted, if I may). And when I came to college, the stigma was that everyone drinks coffee, and while I do enjoy my occasional cup, for some reason I have really taken to tea instead. Oddly enough, I am not alone in this. Many of my friends prefer tea and it's benefits over those of coffee. Here are a few reasons why I would take tea over coffee any day.

1. The health benefits

There are so many health benefits to drinking tea. There are antioxidants and less caffeine than coffee. It can protect your bones, immune system and heart. There are so many more.

2. There is still caffeine in tea

Many people may not like the taste of coffee, so they drink it for the caffeine. Well rest assured, because there is still caffeine in tea. Black tea actually has 60-90 mg of caffeine compared to 150-200 mg in coffee.

3. It tastes amazing

Yes, some people do enjoy the taste of coffee. But for those who don't, tea is a great alternative. Tea can come in all different flavors from fruity to earthy and everything in between.

4. It's a lot easier to prepare tea

When you're making coffee, you need some sort of coffee pot and then you need to have already ground coffee beans. Let's just say it takes time. While when making tea, all you need is hot water.

5. Tea doesn't stain your teeth like coffee

Coffee is one of the main reasons people have stained teeth and then turn to whitening products. When the coffee touches your teeth, it leaves a stain because of the dark pigments. Tea comes in several types, therefore not all of them are dark and will leave stains.

6. Tea can help reduce stress

Studies show that people who drink several cups of tea a day, are more likely to be less stressed than those who choose coffee.

7. It will help to hydrate your body

Tea is one of the most hydrating drinks you can have and it will help to nourish your body.

8. Tea just helps you feel all nice and cozy

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
