How to Beat Bad Feelings

Every once in a while, we all have those days where we can’t get out of a slump.  Whether we’re tired, grumpy, overwhelmed, etc., it’s sometimes hard to snap out of the mood we’re in, no matter how hard we try.  Here are a few different ways you can beat the bad feelings that are bringing you down!

  • Feeling tired? Although you most likely just want to stay in bed, get up and get moving!  I suggest chugging some water and fueling your body with a snack that’s healthy and will give your body a boost.  If you absolutely need a nap, only allow yourself to sleep for 20-30 minutes for a quick recharge!
  • Feeling insecure? Instead of thinking negatively, write down a list of characteristics that you love about yourself.  Change your focus from popularity or appearance and think more about your personality and the people you surround yourself with that love you more than you know!
  • Feeling stressed out? Between school, homework, and a social life, this is an easy mindset to slip into.  Take a deep breath and prepare yourself for the work you have to do. It helps me when I break down all I have to do into smaller pieces. This way, your work will present itself more manageable and less overwhelming.

I hope these tips help you snap back into a better mood ASAP! 🙂

Love, Chelsea

Coffee, A Girl’s Best Friend: Pros and Cons

If your city is like mine, then there is a Starbuck’s on every corner!  It’s quite tempting and pretty hard to say “no” to a hot coffee or icy frappe when it’s right there!  It’s also hard not to make when you’ve got a coffee maker and creamers in your own kitchen.  Nevertheless, coffee is almost unavoidable!  So is this girly drink good or bad for you?  Let’s break down the truth!

Surprisingly enough, coffee has a handful of health benefits!  Coffee contains an abundance of antioxidants that actually prevent brain cell damage.  It helps fight diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.  Even the risk of brain cancer and diabetes drops!  Coffee is also heart healthy!  It keep arteries from becoming inflamed, which lowers the risk of stroke; but be careful, too much coffee can have the opposite effect! Chelsea Crockett- coffee pros and cons

While coffee has a lot of pros, it can also hinder your health.  If you get stressed easily or can’t sleep at night, then lay off the coffee.  Coffee is high in caffeine, which can make certain people very jittery and/or anxious.  If you’re one of these people, but love coffee, just drink one cup a day!  It’s also not a great idea to add a large amount of heavy creamers and sugar to each glass.  All in all, coffee isn’t too bad for you (unless you’re having 5 cups a day)!

Drink up Insiders:)

We all have our bad habits: gum chomping, nail biting, constantly fidgeting around, you name it!  There are hundreds and hundreds of bad habits that we perform each and every day; but did you know that some of these habits can actually be bad for your health?!  Keep on reading to see if you have a bad habit and how to stop it!

Food is one of my favorite things in the whole world.  I mean who doesn’t love a good snack?!  Unfortunately, many of us tend to snack when we are bored or when we aren’t even hungry!  Eventually, these snacks add up and can cause unexpected weight gain.  Also, if you are constantly snacking on junk food it can lead to diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.  Instead, try snacking on fruits or vegetables.  Make yourself perfectly portioned meals and limit yourself to one or two snacks a day!

Shopping is a girl’s best friend and worst-enemy.  Spending hours in the mall can run your wallet dry!  Most of the time, we end of buying clothing items that we don’t need or will only wear once.  Next time you go to the mall, bring a limited amount of cash; that way you won’t spend your life’s savings.  Also, before purchasing an item, try envisioning multiple places you could wear it.  If you can only think of a couple, then put it back on the shelf. Chelsea Crockett- shopping habit

A bad habit that I am guilty of is over-thinking and stressing about everything!  When life throws a million things at you it’s hard not to worry.  These stresses can start to take over your life and daily thoughts.  It’s horrible!  Instead, try to focus on the positive and make a list of everything you’re thankful for.  In no time, you’ll realize that most of the stuff you are worried about is small.

Everyone has a bad habit or two.  Once you learn how to get rid of them, life gets a little easier!

XOXO,

How to Fix a Bad Haircut

Imagine you’re in the moment, “I want bangs and lots of layers!”  Oops, bad mistake. Your hair already has a lot of layers and you have a small forehead already. …

Imagine you’re in the moment, “I want bangs and lots of layers!”  Oops, bad mistake. Your hair already has a lot of layers and you have a small forehead already.  Now it’s just a mess!  The bangs are too short and you look like you have all different lengths of hair.  What do you do now?!  Don’t worry; I’ve got a few brilliant tips to save you from a bad haircut.

  • If you have too many layers, making your hair look really choppy, avoid the flat iron.  Try curling your ends, curling some more than others to make pieces Chelsea Crockett- bad hair cutshorter or longer.  This gives the illusion of blended hair.  Also, slipping on a headband will camouflage stubborn short layers.
  • Hate your new bangs?  No problem!  Lucky for you, there are so many cute half up, half down hairstyles to get those pesky bangs out of the way.  Try twisting your bangs and pinning them up or wearing a hair scarf as a head band.  If you like your bangs but wish they were longer, try blow drying them from above and brushing them straight down.  Once straightened, they will appear longer.
  • If your cut is uneven, avoid the flat iron at all time.  Try curling your hair or call your stylist.  They will usually fix that for free!

Don’t freak out if you hate your new hair!  There’s always another options!

Love,

Chelsea
