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

Who doesn’t love a trip to the beach?!  It’s the perfect place to unwind, get a tan, and have some fun!  Many don’t know this, but going to the beach has a handful of health and beauty benefits.  Check out how a trip to the beach can make your body happy and make you feel even more beautiful!

Taking a few days vacation from your busy schedule is extremely important. Sometimes, we try to accomplish too much and let ourselves get overly stressed.  This can lead to lack of sleep, weight gain, and mood changes.  Our brain and bodies need time to relax!  Sunlight is even proven to decrease depression!  As to our physical appearance, the beach is our best friend.  The sun is a natural source of vitamin D, which leads to healthy skin.  The salt in the ocean can also help clear up acne. (HINT: go all natural at the beach. NO makeup!)  You can even accomplish the perfect beach-wave hair!  If you haven’t gotten a pedicure in awhile or have seriously dry feet, heading to the beach can cure the problem!  Sand naturally exfoliates dead sin off your feet, leaving them smooth and soft!

I think it’s time we all pack up and head to the beach.  Who’s with me?!

Love,

Hey everyone!

School and work are two of the main causes of stress nowadays.  Homework, grades, work, friends, and relationships are just a few of the endless reasons teens and adults are exhausted and highly stressed out.  In addition to long, tiring days, stressing can lead to negative behavior.  To help change your mood from negative to positive, here are a few ways to help you boost your mood!Chelsea Crockett - Boost Your Mood

  • Soak up the sun!  Research shows that the sun actually does boosts your mood!  In fact, the sun can even help with depression.  Getting at least 30 minutes of sunlight a day will guarantee a change in your attitude. 
  • Catch some ZZZ’s!  No one likes to go through a day of school or work exhausted.  Lack of sleep often leads to irritations and carelessness.  I know how hard it is to attempt to do your homework if you continue to doze off!  So, next Saturday, don’t be afraid to sleep in!
  • Eat some chocolate!  Sounds crazy, right?  Scientists say that chocolate can release mood-boosting chemicals in the brain that make us happier.  Even the taste and smell of chocolate can help give your mood a lift.
  • Keep busy!  I don’t mean to be booked every hour of the day, but finding something you love to do can keep your mind off things that bring you down.  Take music for example.  If you love music, try learning the piano or guitar.  Discovering something you find passionate will open your eyes to new things and boost your mood!

How do you keep happy?  Let me know below!

Love, Chels

Wake up, go to school, eat, sleep, repeat.  Sound familiar?  The school week can be exhausting!   Although it’s only 5 days, it can feel like a lifetime!  I put together a few tips to help you look awake when you’re running low on sleep.  As a high school student myself, these tips can be a lifesaver!

The biggest struggle after rolling out of bed is figuring out how to cover the dark circles formed under your eyes.  Such a pain!  Although there are ways to prevent them, such Chelsea Crockett - Too Faced Concealeras eye creams, drinking lots of water, and reducing stress, you can’t always find time to keep up.  With that being said, concealer is the most obvious way to go.  One of my favorites is the Absolutely Flawless Concealer by Too Faced.  Click here to check it out!

Another option is to grab a quick coffee on your way to school.  If you feel awake, you look awake!  A little caffeine doesn’t hurt and can serve as a little pick-me-up before starting the day.  Try to avoid huge energy drinks and quick energy fixes.  They’ll give you the energy you want but will lead to crashing later in the day!

Did you know that having a positive mindset can change your entire attitude towards the day?  So what you might be a little tired… count the positives!  I know whenever I have a better mindset I feel happier and more thankful about the day.  This will change your tired and sluggish mood to a brighter, more upbeat attitude!  Give it a try :)!

Hi Insiders,

            As the saying goes, “You are what you eat.”  I couldn’t agree any more with this statement!  If you eat fast food every day, your body and mood will feel the effects.  You’ll feel sluggish and down.  It’s important to feed your body foods that will make you happy.  Surprisingly, there are certain foods that can actually boost your mood.  It’s an all-natural way to go from sad to happy!Chelsea Crockett- greek yogurt

  • Greek yogurt: This type of yogurt is packed with more calcium than milk and studies show that a high intake of calcium can boost your mood.  Low calcium levels can produce anxiety, depression, and slow thinking.  Eat your yogurt!!
  • Dark chocolate: Of course chocolate is a mood booster, duh?!  I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate?  Dark chocolate, especially, improves blood flow to the brain.  This makes your body more energized and vibrant.
  • Asparagus:  This vegetable has the highest concentration of serotonin, a mood regulator for the brain.
  • Honey:  Although sweet like sugar, this sweet treat can reduce inflammation and reduce depression.
  • Eggs:  The fatty omega-3 acid found in eggs can give your body enough energy to make it through your whole day.  When you’re energized, your whole body will feel alive!

Make your body smile and eat for a body you’d be proud of!
