Why We Need to Celebrate the Average Day

Happy holidays, Modern Mentees! What are you going to be up to? I’m excited to hang with my family, eat delicious food, catch up on sleep… and Netflix! I wanted to share today’s topic because it’s something I’m personally working on. I find, especially during the holidays, that we’re so so so busy and looking forward to lots of things that we totally forget the present moment. The present moment is so important because it’s really all we have! Check out today’s video to help you celebrate the average day.





What to do if you’re not in Love with your College Experience

There’s a big myth out there that most students love college right off the bat. If you’re still feeling iffy about the whole thing that’s totally normal.

Freshman year is a big transition. Check out the video to learn how to relax if you’re not in love with your college experience.





My Take on the BNI (Big Night In) Because Instagram isn’t Telling the Whole Story

I recently received a lot of questions about what to do when you feel like you don’t have a group and what to do when you get major FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) because you’re staying in when it seems like everyone is going out. My question for you is: Do you ever have a Big Night In? I love a good BNI, but it took me awhile to get comfortable with it because I felt like everyone was having fun and I was just at home. Let me tell you, it’s really not the case. Check out the video below to hear my take on the BNI.
