How to Crush The Adulting Game Like a Pro

 Being an adult definitely has its perks, but it’s not as amazing as most of us thought it would be as kids. I remember when I was younger, I would just count down the days until I could drive myself, start college, or get a big girl job. But, when those times actually rolled around, why wasn’t it as magical as I thought it was going to be? 


Okay, maybe some of it was. I’ll admit - driving off alone for the first time was definitely as fun and magical as I expected, but moving out, going to college, and getting a job?! Not so fun, or at least not all the time like I had once expected. It’s funny because when we get to the “not-so-fun” parts of life, a switch flips in our brain and we wish that we could go back in time, when we didn’t have bills to pay and things to do. But, this is part of life, and all you can do is try your best to make the most out of each moment. There really are so many amazing things about adulting that I try my best not to take for granted, but keep in mind - that does not mean that it’s not hard!


Even though there are hard points during the entire adulting process (and those hard times will never end, no matter where we go in our lives), I hope that you are seeing the positives and trying to make the most out of each day. I feel so passionate about viewing situations as the glass being half full, so I decided to write this blog post, about ways that you can get through adulting, focusing on the positives instead of the negatives...or at least try your best to do so! Here are my best tips on how you can crush the adulting game:




Figure Out Your Passions

My first tip on how you can crush the adulting game is to figure out your passions and then learn how to apply them to your daily life. If your passions are something that you can make a living off of, make it happen. For example, a blogger I know loved writing so much - it truly was/is a passion of hers. In middle school, she dreamt of being an author of fiction books and thrived during her creative writing class that she was enrolled in. But, along the way, she was told that it was important to get a practical degree. She tried her hand at nursing and decided she didn’t like it. She went back to school and got an education degree. Once again, she didn’t like it. That’s when she started her blog and now, she made writing her full-time career and loves every second of it.


My point to that story is that we all need to figure out what we love and apply it to our everyday lives. We spend a huge portion of our day at work and if you are not in love with your career, you will get burnt out very, very quickly. Please take the time to figure out what you love and how you can make it a daily part of your life going forward. Even if that means spending an extra year in college just trying to figure out what you can do with your interests and the things you are good at, it will definitely be worth it, in my opinion.


Learn How To Feel Confident In Your Skin

Confidence is absolutely essential when it comes to your happiness. Please know that you are beautiful just the way you are and if anyone has ever told you differently, they are way off track. While there are some things you can do to help increase your confidence levels such as exercising and eating healthy, dressing to impress, and keeping up with basic hygiene every single day, a lot of your confidence comes from your mental health. Mental health is something that is not talked about as often as it should be and it is so important. If you are struggling, please talk with someone. Prioritizing yourself and your happiness, reducing your stress, and surrounding yourself around great people are a few things that can help you keep your mental health strong, while also improving your confidence levels.




Allow The Village To Help

We have all heard of the phrase, “it takes a village.” Typically, this is in reference to parenthood, but we can use this phrase throughout our lives, as well. A great example of this is if your car breaks down on the side of the road. If someone (a friend - probably not a stranger to be safe!), offers to help you, take them up on that. Another great example is buying a new home. While you should learn how to do things on your own as an adult, there are certain things that you should rely on professionals for, and moving is one of those things. If you need a moving company in TX, Texans Movers has your back. They are Houston labor movers and they are industry-leading movers who have served the Texas area for over 10 years.They are family-owned and operated, they provide top-quality services, and they aim to exceed your expectations by customizing their moving services to fit your specific needs.


Hard Work Pays Off

Last but not least, know that hard work pays off. This is something that most of us should have learned in our childhood through school work and chores at home, but it is something that a lot of people do not prioritize during their adulthood. Hard work truly does pay off. You may feel like you are so overwhelmed and so stressed out at some points (especially when it comes to your career and/or schoolwork), but hang in there. If you stick it out, work hard, and show that you are committed, I promise that good things will come your way.


While there are so many other components to living your best adult life, these are just a few ways that you can crush the adulting game. Do you have any other tips? I would love to hear them!

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced. In fact, if you are experiencing issues such as inflammation, tremors, stress, lack of appetite or even pain… Then, it’s very likely that your ECS system is imbalanced. And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract. And, for a limited time, you can get this product at 15% OFF.  Just make sure to

8 Packing Hacks When Moving #guestpost

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’re packing things in the boxes they originally came in such as your pans, Keurig or pots make sure to label your boxes with the room, general contents, and whether it’s fragile or not. This will help you to locate it once you move as well as you can tell the content inside without having to open each box and be
