It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos and stress of the first few weeks of class. To counter the stress of the daily college grind, take some time this weekend to check out some of our recommendations for de-stressing so that you’re recharged and ready to take on a new week!

Read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

If there’s any fictional character who understands freshman year, it’s Cath Avery. She’s obsessed with Simon Snow and writing fan fiction. She’s also not entirely ready to brave the dining halls without her twin sister. Hoping to have a calm freshman year, her plans are turned upside down when Levi walks into her life, and her room. As you lose yourself in Cath’s triumphs and turmoil, you’ll be sure to release some tension and stress in your own busy schedule.




Listen to Demi Lovato’s Sorry Not Sorry

It’s time for a dance party with one of Demi Lovato’s hits. Even if you’re not her biggest fan, you have to admit that the beat makes you want to just move your feet.




Watch The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

A classic like Narnia will never fail to make you feel a little happier and cozier. Grab some popcorn, and maybe a few friends, and curl up for a beautifully told coming-of-age story with the Pevensie children and future kings and queens of Narnia.





Watch Jane the Virgin

Few shows will truly make you laugh out loud as much as Jane the Virgin. After all, what else could possibly go wrong after you’ve been accidentally artificially inseminated at a doctor’s appointment gone wrong? With a talented cast and even more talented narrator, Jane the Virgin will definitely make your weekend a little less stressful.
