At this point, we've all lost count on how many days we are in quarantine. As the days seem longer and longer, you quickly run out of things to do. You notice that you are under extreme stress and anxiety being trapped within your home with no deadline. You've cleaned your clutter, washed your car, made and tried new dishes, helped your children with every sheet of homework, and binge-watched over 400 hours of Netflix, and you realize that that isn't enough to remove this anxiousness. Half of the population is at work, and the other half are at home quarantining. At times, we subconsciously allow our minds to get flooded with information on social media that isn't useful to us.

I've personally had my bouts with insomnia, anxiety, and panic attacks, which in turn has led me to get prescribed anxiety and panic attack medication after two years of not needing any medication. After researching different ways to combat being on edge, I discovered that adding crystals to your daily routine can improve mental clarity, attract love, increase motivation, and calm you down. Check out those healing crystals below.

If you are having trouble with harmony and balance, then lepidolite is the crystal for you. Largely considered a stablizing crystal, the lepidolite's job is to help guide your thoughts before actions by enhancing your awareness. If you suffer from anxiety like myself, having this crystal around can alleviate that anxiety by achieving balance in the mind, body and spirit. The crystal's calm vibes are the perfect remedy for whatever day-to-day stress you might encounter.

Sodalite

Known for its etheral energy, sodalite crystal allows you to open the window of communication and inspiration by tapping into your sense of self-expression. Sodalite acts as a vessel for enlightenment as it aids you with releasing any negative emotions or fears that are not serving you and replace it with restorative feelings of balance and harmony.

Black Tourmaline

If you've had enough and want to rebuke that negativity in the name of Jesus, then it is strongly suggested that you get a Black Tourmaline. Its purpose is to absorb that negative energy, purify it, and transform that lower vibration to a more pleasant one. Think of this crystal like your liver. It is constantly filtering out the bad and replacing it with the good. This crystal sharpens your memory and makes you laser-focused. Whenever you're feeling unsure, sad, or dealing with bouts of depression, this crystal helps you manage those emotions.

It invites high vibrations that in turn remedies your negative feelings of stress, worry, fear and anxiety. This crystal reminds me of a waterfall; it will continuously recycle the light and positive energy throughout your mind, body and spirit.

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
