    how to handle anxiety

    I think everyone gets anxiety from time to time. A big issue with anxiety is when it impairs your ability to function, or ability to complete daily tasks. There’s a lot of different types of anxiety. I am also not a doctor or expert in mental health, so this is basically just my take on […]

    I was recently going through photos on my phone and found some from the best season there is. Fall is my favorite season, and fall in New York City is… as corny as it sounds, magical. The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and every walk you take you’re reminded of the fleeting joys […]

    books i’m reading

    Reading calms my nerves and takes me to a place that often calms me when I am feeling anxious. If I’ve had a rough day, I usually try to check two things off my list: going for a walk and reading. These two things impact me deeply because they help me stop thinking about my […]

    the perfect saturday in chicago

    Homesickness is really real when you live what feels like ten billion miles away from home. I stopped by for a weekend in Chicago to refresh myself and make sure I was still alive (joking) but actually not. Here’s what I got done for my self-care weekend. Highly recommend if you need a reset, no […]
