    For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in a continuous cycle of taking on too much, without slowing down. Most of us have something that is a vice, and often times it transfers from one habit to another. I’ve found that above indulging in food, alcohol, or shopping, work is truly my drug of …

  2. “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn We’ve all come across this message of self-care 1,000 times before. While so simple, it’s stuck around for a reason, because it’s so true. And when I think of someone that helps …

  3. Spring is upon is in a big way, and naturally, with the change of seasons, we are all looking to spruce up our body, mind, home and heart. Sometimes it’s not about the big changes but more about the little ways we can implement wellness into our everyday lifestyle that really makes the long-lasting difference. I asked several …

  4. Our month-long conversation about what it means to “Love Thy Selfie” has both piqued my interest and made me tired. I sat at the keyboard too long before admitting that I was tangled up in definitions of self-esteem, self-image, self-compassion, self-knowledge…all of this. I was confusing know thyself with treat yo self, and I was tired …

  5. Hello, everyone! Here we have a picture of two dogs embracing and the words of Liz Welle. Both are equally comforting.

  8. 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 …

  9. 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 …

  10. 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, …

  11. 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 …

  12. 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 …

  13. 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.
