How To Host A Friend

We've all been in that embarrassing situation where there's nothing to do with a friend. Don't go there again! 

Even if you're an introvert, provide a List of Fun to your BFF and let her pick (or if she says, "whatever." then you pick!) which one to do. I have done this multiple times. Once, It ended up being pretty random, but a few years ago we made a music video/movie about our fun Valentine's Day. The point was that we had fun, thought beyond the ordinary, (such as watching TV all day, being on SM, etc.) and made the most most of our time together. 

Listed below are some ways to make the most of your time with friends:

Draw or paintMake up a danceWrite a song Preform a playMake cookies or other fun treatsMake a movie (My personal favorite!)BoardgamesPlay outsidePlay an instrument
Take a walkWatch a favorite movie (then get up and act it out!) 
Make friendship bracelets (an old but good way to keep a friendship throughout summer!)

Take June 1st

Summer is rush season...not just for you, but for most people. It's a season when studies lay off, and there's time on your hands for extra daily requirements. People are extremely surprised because   there is so many "to do's" on a daily basis. There's no doubt things have to be accomplished, but are they really necessary? Simplify your life in 10 easy ways: 
1: Actively.  You weren't made to be doing something every second of the day. Your body needs rest. Say no to the yoga class, or the swim team. Leave time in your day to sit on the porch swing and read a book. According to Scholastic, children who have imagination playtime will strengthen their social, emotional, language, and thinking skills of a child. Be a thinker, and don't bother attending activities. Learn on your own! This is true for all of us. The more rest, the more clarity. 
2: Socially. Turn off your phone for an hour of the day. Read or write a paper. Give your eyes, mind, and though…

5 Keys to a Happy Summer

It's summer Y'ALL!!!

Look back at your year...how have you changed? What new friendships did you make? How much have you achieved? Whatever it might've been like, now is the time to put on your extravert self and jump in the pool!

1: Step Back. Take some time away from stressful things: electronics, confusing books, cold showers, early mornings, late nights, etc. Maybe for you its missing a scroll through Social Media to take a nature walk, or swimming with a friend instead of snap-chatting her. Give it some thought! God wants us to be refreshed...so don't feel guilty if you sleep past 8, or eat breakfast in your pajamas­čść

2:Organize. Summer is the time to get done what you want to during the school year.
-Organize your drawers.
-Vacuum your room.
-Clear the porch leaves for your mom.
-Dust your room.
-Clean your shower.
-Get rid of that item that keeps bothering you!
For me, it felt good to change my sheets and switch some things around in my room. If you think organiza…

3 Tips for Overcoming Fears

Image
Have you ever been so scared to try something that you backed out and missed an experience?
I think everyone has at some point in their lives. You are so uncertain about the outcome of something so you shrink back from an opportunity. I'm not here to tell you to always "step out" because sometimes it's best to listen to your spirit and not participate. Honestly, it's really hard to know when you should sign up for that club or go to that event. Below are some practical tips to help you evaluate the situation.

You’ve got to face your fears to become someone greater. If you’re trying to improve yourself, you’ve got to step out of your comfort zone! Take risks! I've faced so many fears this past month and i have matured greatly. Here are two (to name a few) ways I pushed through. 
#1 New Environment. I was so nervous to travel with my family for a couple weeks, It meant leaving my friends and all of my weekly activities. Plus, I didn’t want to leave my dog. I wa…
