Adulting Life Hacks (Short List)
  • Buy an air mattress 12+ inches off the ground and a memory foam bed topper or two. It’ll cost hundreds less than a mattress and you’ll sleep just as good if not better. 
  • Wash your sheets once a week if you can. Yes, you will notice a difference. 
  • Never study/read/scroll through tumblr on your bed. Your brain associates activities with places. Associate your bed with sleeping. 
  • Grocery outlets are not below you. You can get the same produce at a steep discount, allowing those on a college sized budget to eat better. 
  • Invest in quality products (laptops, school supplies, clothes, ect) but don’t be outlandish. A laptop that will last you through a doctoral degree is one thing and a $200 pair of jeans is another. 
  • Never go to sleep with makeup on if you can help it. 
  • Cleanse, exfoliate, tone, THEN moisturize. 
  • Tea tree oil shampoos twice a week will heavily combat dandruff and scalp flakes. 
  • Invest in a pair of good sneakers and hiking shoes. Look for pairs at thrift stores and outlets. (I got a pair of leather Timberland boots for $20). 
  • Always carry an umbrella, a lip balm or chapstick, change, and a snack. 
  • Therapy does not mean you are weak or need help. Sometimes talking things out can let your brain focus on more important things. 

Stay positive my darlings.
