It’s almost spring again. I personally love spring cleaning, but that’s because I’m a super organized neat freak who loves cleaning regardless of the season. However, this blog is about a different type of spring cleaning. It’s for your mind. We get bogged down so easily, especially with the winter blahs; plus why not free […]

posted Monday, February 27, 2017

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

In my opinion, there is nothing better than real life, in person help for mental health concerns. But the reality is that there are so many barriers to these types of interactions: rural locations, stigma, finances, social and cultural norms, internal pressure…the list is (unfortunately) endless. The good news is that we live in an […]

How To Be Kinder to You in 2017

posted Friday, December 30, 2016

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

Are you hard on yourself? Me too. I was a terribly sensitive child (oh, how I have come to hate the word ‘sensitive’!) right from the get-go, seemingly doomed to a life consumed with self-hatred and setting unrelenting, unattainable standards for myself. My parents parenting skills were not lacking, it’s just that their comforting methods […]

by: in Mental Health / Self-Help

I have been that adolescent girl who wrote all the words I didn’t dare say out loud. I am also that almost 30 year old woman who journals and again, writes words that I still don’t speak of. I’m sure reading this you are either one of three people: the one who eagerly pours your […]

Imagine going shopping with your girlfriends: You head to the change room and come out to model your new look saying, “Once I lose this belly then this dress will look amazing”, and they tell you about a new diet that might help.
