10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

Harry Styles has been a household name since 2010, and his fanbase only continues to grow every day. With five successful years in what some consider the world’s biggest boyband, One Direction, Styles was able to use the platform he built with his four bandmates to propel himself into a successful solo career.

Styles has repeatedly stated that he doesn’t like the term “famous.” He stays humble alongside the fame he experiences, uses his popularity to help as many people as he possibly can, and continuously encourages others to “treat people with kindness.” If you aren’t a fan of Harry Styles yet, here are 10 reasons why you should be:

1. LGBTQ+ Supporter

On many occasions, Styles has made it very clear that he supports the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. At his concerts, he creates a sort of safe haven for them, a place where anyone in the community can feel secure and accepted, and he makes sure that every person in the audience knows. Styles has also helped fans come out to their parents during his shows by reading their signs and even calling one fan’s mother. By waving around bedazzled pride flags and dancing with them wrapped around his neck or draped over his microphone stand, Styles makes it evident that his love for his LGBTQ+ fans is something special.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

2. Donates To Charity

Styles actively donates a portion of his earnings to charity, supporting things like cancer research, March for Our Lives, and Time’s Up. During Harry Styles: Live On Tour, his 2018 world tour, Styles raised approximately $1.2 million for 62 charities around the world. By donating a portion of ticket sales from each show as well as merchandise profits, Styles was able to help thousands. He also successfully registered hundreds of fans attending his shows to vote, made over 5,000 connections to local charities in the cities he performed in, and conserved over 6,500 gallons of water at his shows.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

3. Breaks Gender Norms

Harry Styles is one of the few celebrities to not follow all of the rules, and we love that about him. Styles has always been one to challenge the rules of fashion, wearing floral print Gucci suits and growing his hair past his shoulders. He would rock golden boots on stage and make red carpet appearances in designs new to the fashion world. At first, Styles’ fashion choices weren’t accepted by many, but he didn’t let that stop him. Now, Styles is considered a fashion icon. At just 25, Styles became the Met Gala’s youngest host, wearing custom Gucci with lace cutouts and painted nails, and he absolutely rocked it.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

4. Cut His Hair For Charity

On May 6, 2016, Styles posted a photo of his beloved long hair in a braid – not on his head, but in his hand, followed by the caption, “Whoops. #Litttleprincesstrust.” Styles cut his famous curls and donated them to the Little Princess Trust, a charity operating throughout Europe that provides high-quality wigs to children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment or other illnesses. His donation inspired hundreds of his fans to do the same, and because of his generosity, children around Europe can once again experience confidence.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

5. Makes Sure Concerts Are An Accepting Environment

At every show of his, Styles makes sure that his fans know they are in a safe and accepting environment. He greets them with a warm hello, tells them not to worry about who’s watching them sing or dance, and asks fans to hug one another during his set – and they listen. There is something about Styles that makes others not only feel accepted themselves, but makes them want to accept others as well.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

6. Truly Cares About His Fans

On a variety of different occasions, Harry Styles has gone out of his way to make his fans happy and make sure that they are okay. During a few of his 2018 concerts, Styles actually stopped performing midway through his songs to check on fans in the pit who needed help. He hands them water bottles, sends security to help them, and even waits patiently for them to get the help they need before they continue to perform. Styles has also been seen helping fans who have fallen or gotten hurt in a mob and even going out of his way during a meet and greet to meet a fan who experienced an anxiety attack before she could meet him.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

7. Unique Writing Skills

After taking a break from One Direction, Harry Styles was able to experiment with his own personal sound, and he definitely took a risk by releasing music with a totally different sound than what he and his bandmates were used to performing. Styles has been praised for bringing classic rock and roll back to the world of pop music and for writing heartfelt and emotional lyrics. He brings personal experience into his songwriting, showing vulnerability while telling others that they are not alone, that it’s okay to hurt sometimes, and that they will be alright.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

8. Humble Beside His Fame

Although his fans may not know Harry Styles personally, it is safe to say that he has always been and still remains one of the most humble celebrities beside his fame. Styles has expressed his feelings toward the word “famous,” explaining that he is just a person, the same person he was before, and that a label like “famous” makes him feel like he lacks what is most important. Styles remains the funny, family-loving, down-to-earth person he was before One Direction, and this is continuously confirmed through interactions with him that people share on social media, claiming that he is one of the kindest people they have ever met.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

9. Family Man

During his off time, Harry Styles is often spotted out with friends and family. It is evident that his family is very important to him, and he shows his love for them through the multiple tattoos he has for them. Styles also takes his mother, Anne Twist, as his date to events like the recent Fleetwood Mac concert he attended.

10 Reasons Why You Should Love Harry Styles

10. Encourages Others To Be Themselves

Perhaps the most lovable thing about Harry Styles is the way he encourages others to be themselves. At each and every one of his concerts during Harry Styles: Live On Tour, Styles gave a speech telling his fans to “be whoever you want to be in this room,” letting them know that who they are and who they want to be is completely accepted by him. He makes people who struggle to accept themselves feel safe and loved for who they are, and that’s important.

The Best Personality Tests If You Actually Want To Get To Know Yourself

Personality tests have become silly and fun thanks to their abundance within the world of social media. But how much do you actually learn about yourself with those “build your perfect sandwich” type quizzes? I’ve loved to take personality tests since I was in middle school; I’ve always been obsessed with learning as much about myself as I can, and because of this I have found some personality tests that I think actually help us learn more about ourselves.

Myer Briggs personality type quiz – or the 16 personality types

This is one of the first personality tests I found that actually resonated with me. The Myer Briggs personality test divides your personality into four parts; introvert (I) vs extrovert (E), intuitive (N) vs sensitive (S), thinking (T) vs feeling (F), perception (P) vs judgment (J). You’ll answer questions that will determine which side of those four scales you are and it will explain what each section means more in-depth.

I’m an INFJ, so I scored higher on the introvert, intuitive, feeling, and judgment sides of each scale. When I first got this result, I was super concerned because I thought the judgment side meant judgemental, but what this test is referring to is people who like more structure and order in day to day life, and they are decisive and like things to be decided – they aren’t as go-with-the-flow as those who score on the perception side.

The actual test can be found here, but I’ve found this free test to be just as accurate.

The Best Personality Tests If You Actually Want To Get To Know Yourself

If you like numbers, you’ll probably find the Enneagram personality test enjoyable

I recently discovered this test from one of my friends – and by recently I mean at the beginning of this year. It seemed simpler in theory than in action, but once I did a bit more research I was able to figure out all of the terminologies.

So with this personality test, you can be identified as any number from 1 to 9. Within these assignments, there are wings for each type, which are the numbers directly before and after your type, and integration and disintegration points, which are basically the two types that you are connected to that you lean toward when you are feeling safe or threatened.

For the purpose of this article, I took the free test again and my results showed that I actually tied two types, 4 and 5. If this happens to you, read more about each type and you should be able to see which is stronger for you – in my case 4 is slightly stronger. So, I’m a 4 with a 5 wing (4w5), and my integration and disintegration points are 1 and 2.

Again, I found this personality test a bit confusing at first so you might need to do some more research if you want to try this one out.

The Best Personality Tests If You Actually Want To Get To Know Yourself

Learn about you love languages – and if you have a significant other, learn about each others’ love language

This is super helpful in relationships. By taking this quiz and having my boyfriend take it, we have learned that we speak different languages when it comes to how we show and receive love. Now we are able to better show that we care because I know that he needs to cuddle more than talk or be given gifts to feel loved, and he knows that need him to do things to help me out and be present with me instead of receiving gifts or being told that he loves me in order to feel loved.

The Best Personality Tests If You Actually Want To Get To Know Yourself

Not really a personality test, but look into your astrological signs – maybe get a natal chart made

If you don’t believe in horoscopes, that’s fine. But if you do, you should have your natal chart made. To get this chart made, you will need to take the date, time and location of where you were born and Cafe Astrology maps out the alignment of the planets.

I personally love this because I’m a cusp baby, meaning I was born on the lend of one sign, beginning of another – and even in Chinese zodiac I was born on a cusp. But this really helped me learn more about my sign and all of the other aspects of astrology that I didn’t really understand.

What personality tests do you think are pretty accurate? Which personality tests have you tried? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to see what kinds of tests you all have taken.

2. Jeans

High waisted stretch jeans are good to add to your outfit when riding a bike. The jeans are sturdy, with extra stretch, to eliminate a heavy feeling. Jeans can be paired with a scoop neck t-shirt or light sweater. On days when the weather is more chilly than warm, you can pair your jeans with a hooded jacket, to help protect you from the kick-back of the wind.

Throw on a blazer, to keep your cycling style sharp! You can opt for a linen blazer, to keep things casual or you can wear a different material like a wool blend, for important events.

A cardigan offers the best of both worlds, with the sweater to keep you cozy and the option to wear it buttoned or unbuttoned.

5 Reasons You Should Start Meditating

Meditation may be one of the greatest gifts on this planet, and meditating is something everyone should make time for during the chaos of daily life. Work, family, money, and social life are all aspects of life that can cause one a lot of unnecessary stress, but mindfulness and connecting to oneself is a great addition to your daily routine to stay grounded and put your mind to rest. Here are five reasons why you should incorporate meditation into your busy life:

1. Grounding and Connecting To Oneself

Meditation is a great way to connect back to yourself whenever you’re feeling a bit off. When we’re spending an entire day working at a computer screen or staring at our phones, it can be common to feel anxious and like something is missing from yourself or your life. A great way to reconnect to yourself and ground yourself to nature and the earth is through meditation when you can take moments to connect to the world around you while calming your mind.

Feeling grounded and connected to yourself is so important and can really change your outlook on everyday life. Through meditation, this can be achieved.

5 Reasons You Should Start Meditating

2. It Gives You A Reason To Slow Down and Reflect

For many of us, life is incredibly fast-paced and it seems difficult to ever find time to slow down and relax. By allotting even just 10 minutes a day to a mindful activity such as meditation, we can take time to reflect and calm our minds, allowing us to think more clearly and logically. Meditating daily also allows you to see the beauty of everyday things and appreciate all that one has.

Everyone can benefit from this practice and it is incredibly rewarding to do so.

5 Reasons You Should Start Meditating

3. It Calms the Mind and Puts You In A Peaceful State

We know that everyday life can be stressful as hell. Sometimes after a long day, you want to just get home, crawl into bed, and not worry about anything else until you wake up the next morning. If you just set a small amount of time after a long day to calm your mind and let your body relax, we can encourage a more peaceful state of mind not only for the time being but also for the long run.

Meditating is an amazing way to wind down after a long day or week and will allow your mind and body to rest, which is always well needed.

5 Reasons You Should Start Meditating

4. It Promotes Better Sleep

Many of us struggle with our sleeping patterns due to insomnia, stress, or just poor sleeping habits. Incorporating meditation into your daily routine will help you slow down your racing mind, which is often what keeps many of us up at night. Scientific studies have even proven that meditation promotes better sleep due to a peaceful state of mind created by the activity.

A quick 10 minute guided meditation before bed can really change your sleeping patterns and will help you enter a deep and restful sleep for the night.

5 Reasons You Should Start Meditating

5. It’s Amazing For Your Mental Health

Studies have shown that meditation is amazing for different mental health disorders including anxiety, depression, and other similar mental health issues. Through meditation, one can more deeply understand themselves, allowing them to try to change their attitude and mood towards the outside world. Having a deeper understanding of yourself allows you to change your perspective and motivates you to change negative thinking patterns to healthier ones.

As someone who has struggled with mental health issues in the past, I can confidently say that meditation is an amazing way to reduce anxiety and depression and promote good health overall.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

The early 2000’s was a beautiful era, full of Tamagotchi’s, Beyblades and Pokemon cards. This time was also one of the best in cinematic history, with hits like Love Actually, Legally Blond and Gladiator, but there are a ton of movies that were possibly our childhood favourites that we have completely forgotten about. I’m here to refresh your memory and remind you of the best early 2000’s movies that you’ve forgotten about.

1. Spy Kids (2001)

An absolute movie classic. The kind of life we all wish we had as kids, taking on the role of super-spies, armed with the coolest futuristic spy gear we’ve ever seen (to this day)in order to save their family. Going on an adventure of a lifetime, we were all able to live out our fantasies vicariously through super cool Carmen and her little brother Juni. We were also all mentally scarred by the creepy thumb men in red suits… you know what I’m talking about.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

2. Mary-Kate and Ashley, New York Minute (2004)

All of the Mary-Kate and Ashley films are literally my childhood. There wasn’t a single one that was a flop and they definitely all made us want to become fashionista’s like the Olsen twins and preferably also have a twin. My favourite was probably Passport to Paris, purely because that’s the one I think I watched the most growing up, however, that was actually released in the 90’s (where my 90’s babies at?!), so for all intense and purposes of this article, I’ll use New York Minute as an example. Running around New York with your hilarious twin sister in pursuit of beautiful men? Yes, please.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

3. Honey (2003)

Save the last dance? Meh. Step up? Channing Tatum… but meh. When it comes to 2000’s dance movies, Honey takes first place. The ultimate Hip-Hip dance movie with a beautiful message, Jessica Alba (AKA Honey) runs a community dance class to keep kids off the street, when a break in her career finally arrises, it turns her life around, but it’s not exactly the career she was looking for.  We’ll also never forget that final dance to ‘I Believe’ ft that kid on Heelies, goosebumps.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

4. A Walker to Remember (2002)

Another tear jerker by Nicholas Sparks (he really does get us every time), full of beautiful music and twist and turns in the plot, it’s probably the first time any of us truly experiences heartache, this one really cut me deep. We also all definitely fell in love with Landen and all wanted to be the beautiful Jamie.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

5. Elf (2003)

I’m gunna throw it out there, best Christmas movie ever made. Every year this one comes out, it’s just as funny as the year before. Will Ferrel really makes this movie, he’s absolute comedy goal and he makes the character of Buddy so special. If you didn’t watch this feel-good movie back in the early 2000’s, for of all, what were you doing? Second of all, get it on this Christmas, trust me, you won’t regret it.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

6. 8 Mile (2002)

Another classic, not really too kid friendly so I’m not sure why we were all watching this back in the day, but it is definitely what got us all into rap music and, specifically, made us all Eminem fans. It’s an awesome story of a ‘nobody’, building their way up from the bottom into the spotlight (with a lot of hiccups along the way). With some raunchy scenes and some violent moments, this film is really turbulent and has a bit of everything.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

7. Superbad (2007)

Such a classic coming of age movie that I’m sure all teenage buys can relate to. The story centres around a group of boys who are trying to score some alcohol for a party to impress the ladies, however, the journey to get the drink takes some ridiculous twists and turns and ends up being an epic adventure in itself. It’s a hilarious representation of the lengths that teen’s go to impress each other that we can all relate to. McLovin’ has become such a memorable character he’s actually now been mentioned in a Kanye West song, if that doesn’t scream iconic I don’t know what does.

Movies Of The Early 2000’s You Definitely Forgot About

If you grew up in the early 2000’s, make sure you re-watch these movies and remind yourself of all the cinematic gem’s of the era, the ones I’ve mentioned being only the best of the forgotten movies, there’s also the classic that everyone remembers such as Mean Girls, Bring it on, The Harry Potters and Shrek. Both movies and music, in my opinion, peaked in this era and it’s all only going downhill from there! Let me know in the comments if you agree that the early 2000’s was the time of our lives.
