Self-Care Sunday: Finding Self-Love via Skincare

I have been discussing self-care for the better part of two years now, and it’s varied from coping with mental illnesses, fighting toxic urges and avoiding toxic people, fitting in morsels of time into a busy day to help rejuvenate one’s mind and emotional capacities, and a few more other topics.

Self-Care Sunday: Mindful Intentions for Unexpected Stress Days

If 2020 has taught me anything at all, it is that life will always try to build some kind of barrier in our paths and the fallout from being stonewalled can be completely debilitating, especially if there’s no plan for protection set in place.

Self-Care Sunday: My New Journey with Anti-Depressants Part 1: Making the Choice to Start Again

Today, I wanted to get very personal. The decision to talk about my journey with anti-depressants was quite a tough one. However, I know that making this sort of choice is one that many people struggle with. The questions of “Will they actually help?,” “Will they make things worse?,” and many others like it are just a handful that an individual can grapple with when trying to figure out if this is the right path for them. While I strongly believe that it definitely depends on the person as to whether or not taking any kind of medication for mental health shall benefit them or not, I wanted to share a very honest account of my personal experiences with the hope that it may help someone else out there who may be having a similar battle within themselves.
