How To De-Stress During Finals

Hey guys and happy finals week to all my college readers out there! I don't know about you, but this week is the beginning of my week of torture (.. I mean finals). It is so hard to get myself motivated to study when all I want to do is listen to Christmas music and bake cookies. However, I got my booty in gear and today I'm sharing with you my top 5 tips to help you de-stress during finals week, or any other time of the year!



1. Stay Positive
College is only one season of your life, try to remember that. Your grades are very important, however make sure you're staying sane while trying to get your good grades! Staying positive will help your overall mental health during a stressful season of your life!

2. Look Your Best
This tip is definitely superficial, but I feel the best when I actually get dressed and put on a little mascara. I'm not suggesting a full face of makeup and your hair perfectly curled, however feeling put together will help you feel less stressed (and you'll fool everyone else into thinking you have it all together, ha!)

3. Don't Skip Your Workouts
Working out is so important when you're stressed out. It will reduce your stress levels as well as give   you all sorts of positive endorphins! If you can't find time for your normal workouts, just grab your yoga mat and stretch it out for 5 minutes! 

4. Eat Well
Your brain and body need nutrient dense foods, especially if you're drinking lots of coffee to stay up to study! Make sure you eat a lot of proteins and veggies to keep you fuller longer!

5. Get Enough Sleep
This one is laugh worthy, but it's so important to make sure you are getting enough rest whenever you're stressed out!

Let me know your de-stress tips in the comments!

Good luck on your exams,

Finding Fitness Classes In Your Town




Something super fun about Columbus is having so many different fitness classes to try (especially when they are free)! I've been going to so many different classes recently and really enjoying them. Today I'm going to talk about how to find great studios in your town and talking about my favorites here in Columbus!



I'm, obviously, a very big social media person. I think it's great for pleasure, business and also planning out your social life. I have been obsessed with Facebook's Event feature. I always feel like every time I log on there is a new fitness event that one of my friends is going to. A lot of studios will do free or discounted classes for special events like their grand opening, a random party or for the holidays!

Another great way to try out new fitness studios in your town is to get a group of women together and go! Recently, us Tone It Up girls here in Ohio have been getting together and hiring a personal instructor to teach us different classes. This is so fun because we get to come together and pick the location, time, and even workout!






If you're in Columbus here are a few fun classes / fitness events coming up:










I hope you enjoyed today's post!
