Prioritize Yourself (#131)

This first year of grad school has tested me in more ways than I could have ever imagined. A good lesson I’ve learned is to take care of myself before I worry about everything else. I find myself feeling grateful the next day when I can start to be productive again after taking care of my mental health first.


Today I’m Grateful For…

  1. The cleansing rain
  2. Vibrant sunsets
  3. Getting things off my chest
  4. Time for self care
  5. New opportunities
  6. Different perspectives
  7. Getting the support I need
  8. This semester coming to an end
  9. Good group mates
  10. Time to relax and listen to music
  11. Signs from the Universe
  12. My peer mentor staff
  13. Early morning gym sessions
  14. Spontaneous dancing
  15. Air conditioning
  16. Clean water
  17. Times I can help my friends
  18. Helpful reminders
  19. Waking up with the sun
  20. Family board games
  21. Throwing the disc around on the beach
  22. Kept promises
  23. Time
  24. Being alive
  25. This very moment

As always, check out my first blog, 25 Things I’m Grateful For (#1) to know why I’m writing this list and why I want you to start yours.
