Let's Talk Tuesday - Kindness

Hey everyone, it’s Let’s Talk Tuesday! This week I wanted to talk about the importance of extending kindness whenever possible. It doesn’t have to be anything super big, but can be as simple as holding the door open for someone. There’s a lot of negativity in the world, so simple acts of kindness can make someone’s day and encourage them to be kind as well. It costs $0.00 to be kind. I can remember a time when a neighbor removed the snow from my car for no reason other than to be nice. It meant a lot to me that...

Let's Talk Tuesday - "You'll Be Fine"

It goes  “If I could travel through time I think I would tell myself from the past you’ll be fine.”  This line resonated with me. Four years ago, I was just beginning my freshman year of college.

Let's Talk Tuesday - It Gets Better

It’s been a long time, I shouldn’t have left you, without a dope post to read through :) Good Morning everyone! It’s Let’s Talk Tuesday!! I saw a post on Instagram that I wanted to talk with you all about. It reads “You’ll watch an entire Netflix series when the first episodes are slow just because someone told you “it gets better” - but what if you looked at your goals like that and watched your life get better instead?” This post spoke to me personally, because I can be impatient with myself. I couldn’t have seen this post at...

Let's Talk Tuesday - Dieting

Good morning everyone! We hope everyone’s week is off to a great start! It’s that time of the week again, Let’s Talk Tuesday!  Last week we talked about self concept, and this week we will talk about dieting. I know what you're thinking. Dieting is related to physical health, but what does it have to do with mental health? Your diet isn’t just what you eat. Dieting involves consuming healthier things. Apply that to your mental health. Are you consuming healthy things on social media? Are you reading positive content? Are you spending most of your time in a positive...
