It’s that time of year again – after you’ve probably just recovered from all your crazy Christmas shopping, now it’s time to turn around and Valentine’s Day shop for the meaningful people in your life. While Valentine’s Day typically tends to get a bad rep for being annoying + cliché, I know there’s a handful of us that find it fun to be able to express our gratitude for the ones we love and care for and to have en excuse to be cheesy and crack some bad puns.
Usually one of the first things I notice about someone is their smile. For me, as an avid coffee drinker, sometimes the stains that remain can take away from the brightness of my smile. I’ve tried turning to toothpastes and mouthwashes, but they just don’t seem to completely do the trick when it comes to deeper stains – and whitening strips have led to increased sensitivity. Then I turned to White with Style.
Even the most happy-go-lucky people run into bad days – not that I’m saying that’s particularly me, because Lord knows I definitely hit my wit’s end. My point being, we all experience some not so desirable days/situations, and we all search for ways to alleviate the frustration. Everyone has different ways they like to destress, but here’s generally how I cope with my less than perfect days.
It’s about that time that those of you who are still students have to start coming to terms with the upcoming semester and determining a plan of action to make sure you keep your head above the water and make it through successfully (I know this is the same song I’d sing to myself prior to each semester, anyway).
There are four different learning styles to keep in mind when it comes to determining your plan of action for the semester. I am a combination of a visual + verbal learner, meaning I have to be able to see images/processes + hear/use words, whether it be through speech or writing. However, there are also aural (auditory) or physical learners. Figure out what your learning style is here!
Eating seasonally is certainly not a new concept, however it should become more common. Shopping for your produce while it’s in season is not only more beneficial for your health, but your wallet as well. In terms of your health, foods that are in season are better tasting + more nutrient dense; and the reason you save money is because the cost of growing/distributing the produce is cheaper, and are generally grown more locally. Produce that is out of season is more likely to be coming from other countries, which means they are harvested before they are fully ripened so they don’t spoil by the time they reach the store or your kitchen (Henry, 2014).
It’s that time of year again when we reflect on the year and focus on the things we want to change with the upcoming excuse to start over with a fresh slate. And while we all write up our New Year’s resolutions with good intentions, some of the most recurring themes when it comes to the obstacles we face are feelings of obligation, remaining consistent, and setting unrealistic expectations for ourselves.
