Find Your Chill

Listen, I understand life gets crazy.  Between balancing school, jobs, a social life and relationships life can easily get the best of you. You work hard everyday to get that much closer to reaching your goals and you deserve to treat yo self! I've had to take this advice almost too frequently this past year. It's so easy for your mind to be consumed by what your next move is, what birthdays are coming up on the calendar, or what test you forgot to study for (This has happened to me before. You know that meme that says 'when you’re in the club and you remember you have a test tomorrow'. Worst feeling ever). But don’t let your selfcare take a back seat.

There’s been so much talk about selfcare on social media nowadays which is great, but its important for YOU to figure out what selfcare means for YOU. For me, it means unplugging, listening to music, + working out. There are so many things that you can do to revitalize your mind, restart, and relax.

netflix + chill

This is nothing new, everyone loves Netflix. During your self care time, try something new! Dabbling in a series other than Grey's Anatomy will have you obsessed with something you never thought you'd like. Put on your favorite fuzzy socks, pop some kettle corn, watch netflix...and actually chill.
