Shine, the daily text message to make you happier each morning

We all know that feeling. The alarm goes off, you wake up already stressed about your to-do list, things you need to get done before lunch, an overdue project, the friend you still need to call back, and the list goes on (and on and on and on #adulting).

 

Fortunately, there’s a new texting service that understands the struggle. Shine wants to give you the motivational boost you need. The daily text message sends you a positive text message every morning so you can start the day off on the right foot.

 

Filled with actionable tips across confidence, daily happiness, mental health and productivity, and featuring fun pop culture references and gifs, Shine feels like a friend in your pocket.

 

“People are increasingly seeking ways to connect with themselves and set their days and their lives up for success. It’s called intentional living and we’re all about it,” said the founders, Naomi Hirabayashi and Marah Lidey.

 

Each day has a different theme, with topics surrounding ways users can be happier and healthier. The text content is bite size so it feels really actionable. If you want to learn more about the theme of the day, you can also read more in the featured article that Shine links to in the text message.

10 Reasons Why It’s Great to Have a Boyfriend Who’s Greek

Greek life doesn’t just turn a boy into a man – he becomes a man you can date. Here’s 10 reasons why having a boyfriend who’s Greek makes everything better.

At the start of every fall and spring semester, you look around and see fraternity rush in full swing. Why does this matter? Because at the end, we know those fraternities will turn boys into men, men that make GREAT boyfriend material. Here’s a few reasons why having a boyfriend who’s Greek is awesome:

10. He’s way more likely to understand your sorority obsessions. Lilly Pulitzer, everything and anything with your letters on it, Vineyard Vines, your love for your line, crafting, and how great he looks in a bow-tie. He gets it, he’s experienced that Greek life has it’s own culture and if you’re lucky, he likes a lot of those things too.

9. He’s smart. Statistics show that Greek GPAs are better than those of their independent counterparts. Most fraternities even have some form of “study hours” to keep grades up to par.

Smart is Hot

10 Ways to De-Stress When You’re a Busy College Student

Tips on How to De-Stress as Busy College Student Balancing your schedule and being a busy college student is tough. Learn how to relax with these easy ways to de-stress when you know it’s time for a break.

There’s no denying it – college is stressful, especially when midterms and finals come around. As a busy college student your schedule is jam packed with lectures, discussions, and assignments all while trying to balance a social life at the same time. Though your life may seem a little hectic at times, make sure you make time to decompress, or else you’ll burn yourself out too quickly. Check out these 10 ways to de-stress when you feel like you’re going to implode.

10. Go for a 10 Minute Walk

Get the blood flowing. A quick walk, or even just stepping outside, can boost your mood and is a great healthy habit. Taking a break can help you relax and clear your mind.

9. Breath Deeply

yoga

Deep breaths help lower your heart rate, lower or stabilize your blood pressure, and can help ease any anxiety you may be feeling. College is stressful and it’s important to sometimes take a moment to simply just release. Remember, deep low breaths are better than shallow breaths from your diaphragm – fill your lungs, let that belly rise as you breathe, and exhale slowly. Repeat until you feel better about life.

8. Buy Yourself a Plant

A little color in your life won’t hurt. Take a trip to the store and pick up a plant to help brighten up your room. From ferns, lucky bamboo, cactuses and other succulents, having a plant in your environment helps you destress.

According to Green Plants for Green Buildings,

“Respected research done by Dr. Roger S. Ulrich of Texas A&M University, Helen Russell, Surrey University, England as well as those conducted by Dr. Virginia Lohr of Washington State University verify that plants significantly lower workplace stress and enhance worker productivity…Participants working in an environment with plants present were 12 percent more productive and less stressed than those who worked in an environment without plants.”

4. The more formals, the merrier. Because, honestly, who doesn’t love a good formal. You’re bringing him to your sorority formal, and you’re practically guaranteed an invite to his.

An Open Letter to the Teacher Who Told Me I Wasn’t Good Enough (2)

And maybe you were right. Maybe I’m not as special as I thought I was before we met. Maybe I’m not destined for greatness. Maybe my dreams were too big. But because of you, I will never figure those things out for myself. I don’t have the freedom to fail, because every time I do, all I can see is the smug look on your face. I can’t see my failures as opportunities. I only see myself proving you right. You took that away from me, but I also willingly gave it to you. I didn’t take my self-worth out of your hands when I still could, and it affects every second of my life. Every choice I make is colored with you. And you don’t deserve that. My decisions are valid and precious, and you aren’t worthy of being a part of them. I keep telling myself that, anyway. 

This may surprise you, but I also have to thank you. You taught me early on that you can’t trust people just because they’re supposed to be good. You taught me that power corrupts. You taught me that heartbreak doesn’t always come from a boy you have a crush on. You taught me that sometimes, promises are totally empty. You taught me that I can get back up again, despite being knocked down for the thousandth time. You taught me that sometimes, paving your own way is more rewarding than following the traditional path. And I learned all of that before my eighteenth birthday.

In the wise words of my girl T-Swift, “one day, I’ll be living in a big old city, and all you’re ever gonna be is mean.”

So thanks for nothing, and thanks for everything.

Just a small town girl living in a lonely world. Millikin University. Tri Delta. Lover of all things Taylor Swift. Alexander Hamilton is my favorite founding father.
