  2. Readers, I’m excited to introduce you to my friend Liz Welle. I met Liz when she was the tender age of 19 and working her way through undergrad. She’s been one of my favorite follows on social media and I admire her humor, candor, and willingness to wear her heart on her sleeve. As I move into …

  3. I recently found myself in a bathroom stall, curled up in a little ball, staring into my hands. There were so many things to do and no time to do them. When you’re about to lose your proverbial shit, you have two options. One: give in to the anxiety. Two: remind yourself that you’ve been here …

  4. It’s often said we cannot “go it alone.” We all need someone to believe in us, to stand by our side when we’re not our best self, to lift you up. It’s just as important to know when to let go. Today’s post from Mental Health contributor Tala Ciatti examines our universal need for one another, …

  5. When Tala and I first spoke via email, she explained she was a new mom who had left her job in mental health to stay home with her baby boy. She had just moved to a new city and was looking for ways to be an active part of something outside of home. Her note to me …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. I woke up at 3:45 this morning…typical for a person who is almost 38 weeks pregnant. I had caught wind of the hashtag #FalconHeights as I drifted off to sleep the night before. Not again, not in our backyard, I thought, already reeling from the news of Alton Sterling. The footage flickering through my phone during these …

  8. When Lana Del Ray’s song came out, the year 2006 flashed before my eyes. I had just graduated college and moved to Minneapolis with a car full of clothes and no furniture after breaking up with my boyfriend of 2 years. This was the beginning of my silent, personal struggle with depression and anxiety, and it would take those 5 …

  9. When I first started Wit & Delight, it was strictly a hobby. Something I did for myself when I wasn’t sure who I was, what kind of life I wanted to build, or even what clothes I wanted to be wearing. Last spring, I wanted to reevaluate what I was doing and the direction I was taking …

  10. This week is Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK and I’m happy to say what’s happening in the UK made it’s way into my feeds as early as Monday morning. While I’m no mental health professional, I do know speaking about our personal experiences goes a long way in helping lift the stigma associated with these ailments. I …

  11. This week started out a little crazed, no? I don’t know about you, but when I turned on my phone Monday morning, my Instagram feed was full of apocalyptic behavior. People were saying tearful goodbyes, making pleas to “stay together” and begging me to TURN ON NOTIFICATIONS. My thoughts: What is happening?! Is the ship going down?! …

  12. “Beam me up, Scotty.” It’s 6:30am and I’m about to board a weekly flight to Dallas. Same gate; same airplane; same crew, and a handful of the same passengers. I walk through the gate and on to the jetway. I place my right foot in the middle of the metal circle you find on every jetway– where the corridor …

  13. Behind every strong brand there are answers to these questions: Why do they exist? What do they do? And, how do they make their mission a reality? Supported by a brand’s core values, a focused belief statement is essential to driving brands forward, keeping all aspects of businesses tracking along to the same long-term goals. The same rules apply to even …
