I’m pretty good at taking care of myself physically. I work out, try to eat healthy (often succumbing to a good burger) and place importance on my skincare and haircare routine. But what about mentally and emotionally? There is stigma surrounding mental health that sometimes makes it hard to openly discuss our problems and adress them. These are uncertain and stressful times for many– COVID-19 is affecting our SMU community and the world. A global pandemic is going on, yet a lot of us have to continue working and keeping up with school. With all this stress piling on, I wanted to write a couple of ways to make sure you are taking care of yourself internally. Keep on reading for my wellness tips!
We all know the about the rumours. Maybe it was from your roommate who went abroad last summer, or maybe you accidentally overheard it at a rush party. While you don’t remember if it’s in New York, or Hong Kong (maybe it was Syria?), somewhere exists night markets where any type of counterfeit fashion is up for sale.
I don’t like to be a narc, but when I am, I like to call out designers. I’m no @dietprada, but I’ve really taken a liking to this.

Let me guess, you were supposed to text her back but forgot to because you phone died after yoga and you text her now but she asks you to go out and you can’t because it’s your friend’s birthday so she asks to do dinner but you have to run and drop that thing off there and now you’re kind of like what do I say so you open your email to take your mind off of things and remember you wanted to look up that internship opportunity and– omg I’m exhausted, but sounding familiar? It seems like these days there is always so much to do and you can barely ever catch a break– don’t get me wrong, I’m sure you’re like me and get it all done, but let’s be honest, you’re not always dishing out your best work. Living a maintainable lifestyle seems like common sense, but how often do you find yourself thinking the obvious is just too easy? Open your eyes, they call it common sense for a reason.
