Self-Care Sunday: Binge a Thon!

Welcome to another edition of “Self-Care Sunday”, where I do my best to attempt to provide you wonderful people with ideas on how to bring even the smallest joys to your life as self-care. Today, I want to talk about something I find relaxing and fun: binging good television! Sometimes, when I’ve had a long…

“You Don’t Look Sick” – Why You Should Stop Saying This

A few weeks ago, I went to the doctor to discuss an extension on medical leave that I had. I had a conversation with him about what I was experiencing in relation to my depression and anxiety. During the conversation, he made a statement to me that sort of bothered me. He said “you don’t…

A Social Media Pause for the Cause

I believe it is time for a pause on social media; and by pause, I mean particularly posting on my social media. I feel at this time, the only things that I can really express is negative energy. I have a lot of personal things going on at the moment, with really no outlet in…

The Power in a Silent Presence

Sometimes, silence is truly golden. It is a lost art form in some; however, what many don’t realize is sometimes silence is all someone needs to obtain peace.

Self-Care Sunday: Give Your Skin that Glow

This week for self-care I want to highlight something very simple yet very relaxing that I do once a week; sheet masks! I’ve been doing sheet masks for a couple months now and I must say I LOVE them! I do one at least once a week (sometimes twice depending on what I’m doing it…

Self-Care Sunday: Creating Space for Yourself

One thing that I feel is necessary for self-care is creating space for yourself. When you think about “creating space”, sometimes the first thing that comes to mind is physical space; cleaning, de-cluttering, doing basic “detoxing” of your life. Those are all good things; however, when I think of creating space for myself, I think…
