Painting- A Self- Care Hobby

I have wanted to go to a structured paint lesson for several years. I finally made it to one last night. I was surprised to find that it felt extremely therapeutic and relaxing! I highly recommend it! What is something that you have thought of that would be relaxing and a healthy coping skill for you to do to relax?

Depression Can Look Like...

Depression does not always look like we think it might look. Many people actually appear to be happier when they are the most depressed or right before they commit suicide. Take the time to engage with your loved ones. Talk to them. Listen to them. Be there for them. Hug them. If you Or someone you know is severely depressed, there is help. Seek professional counseling. There is always hope!

Healthy Drinks

Hello. I just want to share what I drank yesterday at work. First of all, I drank a smoothie that was loaded with fresh organic fruit and vegetables. Then I drank a probiotic drink called kevita that is a Kombucha drink. It is a fermented tea that is good for gut health. Then I drank water that was infused with lemons, oranges and blueberries. Lastly, I drank vegetable juice that I juiced myself yesterday morning! I juiced carrots, celery and lemon! It is very important to hydrate all day long and it is especially important to drink nutritious drinks along with water!
