You Should Be Writing In A Diary No Matter Who You Are

You Should Be Writing In A Diary No Matter Who You Are

You're not "too old".

Writing isn't exactly everybody's thing. However, writing about your day should be. The more adult version of a diary would be a "journal". Diary-keeping, journal-keeping, whatever you want to call it, should be in everyone's daily routine. You may ask why, but the answer is pretty obvious: it's good for you!

How exactly is keeping a diary good for you? It gives you a way to talk about your problems. We all have day-to-day problems, whether they're big or small. You shouldn't keep anything bottled up, no matter the issue. Telling someone about said problems may not always be the comfortable option. Although writing them out in a notebook of your choice can be. Essentially, you would write in a diary everyday. Not everyone has time for that or remembers. If you do remember, though, make sure you do it! It has the potential to make you feel so much better. It's a great way to end the night, or maybe even start your morning.

You can pretty much keep whatever you want in it. Maybe it's gossip, what you ate today, or something about your significant other. You don't only have to write your problems in it. It's, honestly, whatever you want! You can even look back at older entries to see how you were feeling a certain day. They are more than just something you write your thoughts in, they're also just a lot of fun!

It may seem quite childish. Keeping a diary is totally a elementary school girl thing. Except, it's really not! I suppose "keeping a diary" is a little off putting for some people. However, that's what it is! I know that's what I call mine. If you want to call it "journaling" then so be it! We are all different and prefer certain things. Something we all have in common though are thoughts, thoughts that need to be shared with another person or yourself.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
