How to Prioritize God in Your Life

Prioritizing God is a priority in itself.  For me, I always try to put God above everything else in my life, whether it be my friends, my relationship, school, etc.  Although it can be hard, it is so so important and you will see the benefits of knowing God on a deeper level!  Here are a few ways that work for me when I’m struggling with prioritizing God!

  • Set your eyes on the prize and know that you have an amazing reward waiting for you in heaven.  If you think about standing before God one day, you’ll want to truly know him on such a deep and personal level!
  • Set your focus and write it on paper.  I fully believe that writing something down will truly help you stick to it.  Focus on your spiritual goals and how you want to grow in your faith, then write it down!
  • Schedule your time each day or week, and again, write it down.  If you have a planner, write down when you’ll spend time with God each day.  It will really help you stick to your plan and get in your quiet times daily! 🙂
  • Set up accountability.  Accountability is so much more important than you realize.  Go out of your way to find someone that will check up on you and make sure you’re putting God first.  Sometimes having a little extra help isn’t a bad thing!

I hope this helps you figure out how you can put God first in your life!

3 Unique Ways to Spend Mother’s Day

I feel like Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that always sneaks up on me so fast!  Coming up with the perfect gift and day to plan out isn’t easy, but I always get it done in time to surprise my mom with a great day.  I wanted to think out of the box this year, so I came up with a few unique ways to spend Mother’s Day!

  • Buy supplies at the store and plant some flowers together!Chelsea Crockett - DIY Flower Pots  You can even buy pots to decorate with paints, stencils, and other things to customize them.  You and your mom can go to the store together and pick out which seeds you want to plant, too.  Make sure you remember to give it lots of water and sunlight!
  • Take a “staycation.”  This is when you go to a nearby big city (or the city you live in if you’re not close to a bigger one) and create a whole day filled with plans that you and your mom can do together!  This could be anything from going to eat somewhere you’ve always wanted to and exploring different spots around town.  Living near St. Louis, it’s always fun to plan a relaxing day around the city!
  • Now this idea is a little outside the box but perfect for a bigger group of people.  Something called Escape the Room is so, so fun for a group of about 10 or so people.  Grab your mom, aunt, grandma, etc. and work together to make it out in time!  They’re getting more and more popular so look for one in your city! 

What are you doing this year for Mother’s Day?  Let me know below!

As the school year approaches, most of us are dreading getting back into the routine of waking up early, homework, and much more.  There are certain tips and hacks that will help you get back into the swing of things but will also help you throughout the entire school year.  I know it can get hard!  That being said, here are some hacks from yours truly!

For the first week:

  • Plan exciting breakfasts for you to look forward to.  Chelsea Crockett - School OutfitI know if I have my favorite breakfast in my kitchen with some good coffee to chow down the next morning, I’ll be much happier to get out of bed!  It doesn’t make waking up such a dread!
  • Plan your outfits the night before.  It will save you the time and stress of picking it out while you’re rushing to get ready!  Hang it up so it stays unwrinkled throughout the night.
  • If you’re not 100% confident on knowing your new class schedule, make it your phone’s lock screen.  That way it’s accessible for a quick look.

For the whole year:

  • Studying can get old really fast, especially toward the end of the semester.  Try the tip of studying for 25 minutes then a 5-minute break.  And every third break take an extra 15 minutes!  This will give your brain a little rest so you don’t burn out!
  • When writing an important essay, it’s easy to miss the little typos and grammar issues.  Copy and paste your essay into Google translate and it can read it to you out loud!  It’s much easier to hear your mistakes when listening to it.

I hope these help you out and I wish you a great start to your new school year!

Love, Chelsea

College Orientation: Do’s and Don’ts

College orientation is a good place to meet people and get prepared for your first year as a college student. Along with a lot of you, I just graduated high school, so orientation is coming up! There are certain things you must do during orientation. That being said, there are also things you must avoid, as well!

DO’S

  • Dress appropriately for the occasion! You will be meeting a lot of other students and even counselors of your new school.
  • Be social! Depending on where you go to college, there’s a big chance of you not knowing many people. Be talkative and engage in conversation. Everyone else there is trying to make friends just like you!
  • Ask questions. It’s hard to know what to expect when you leave for college. Orientation is supposed to answer some of those questions! Be curious and attentive in the seminars, meetings, etc.Chelsea Crockett - College Orientation

DON’TS

  • Don’t forget to bring all of your orientation essentials (especially if it’s overnight). Pack the right clothes along with everything the school requires. You may need to fill out forms or packets before arriving!
  • Don’t go unprepared. There are tons of things you’ll need to consider before orientation: which classes you want to take, how many credit hours of classes you want, etc. Have an idea in your head of what you want your schedule to look like!

I hope you have a successful college orientation :)!

Overcome Jet Lag…FAST!

If you’re an avid traveler like I am, overcoming jet lag is very important.  If you’re wondering what jet lag is, it’s when your body has trouble adjusting in and out of time zones.  This can consist of disturbed sleep patterns, weakness, and disorientation.  Many don’t know how to respond to their body feeling this way and end up hurting themselves even more.  Keep on reading to find out how to get back on track…fast!Chelsea Crockett- time zones

Before you leave, make sure to rest up!  Sleep as much as possible.  If you’re planning on going to a faraway destination, try changing up your sleeping pattern before you leave to adjust easier.  If you’re traveling east, go to bed earlier and wake up earlier.  If you’re traveling west, go to bed later and wake up later.  Once you journey has started stay hydrated!  Drink as much water as you can.  Also, take caution with sleep medication.  Taking it to force your body to sleep will not help you adjust naturally.  This will cause you to be tired longer.

If you arrive to your destination in the morning, stay up as long as possible!  Forcing your body to get on a certain sleep schedule is the quickest way to adjust.  If you arrive at night, go to sleep right away.  If you’re feeling tired, try to get as much natural light as possible.  This will help your body set its natural clock.  If you’re going away for a weekend or taking a short trip, it’s easier for the body to just stay on its “home” schedule.

Next time you travel, try these simple tips to keep your body fueled…but most importantly, have an amazing time!!
