Why do you smoke?

I’ve debated whether or not I should share here on my blog that I dabble in cannabis from time to time, my reservations being that I don’t want anyone misconstruing my marijuana use and assuming I’m competing with Snoop in terms of how high I can possibly be.

Every now and then, I’ll check the Apple News app on my iPhone.

But, because I feel a moral obligation to stay up-to-date … More Why are we encouraging body image issues via media?

It is arguable that when most of us hear the phrases ‘body image’ or ‘self-esteem’, our minds typically wander in the direction of fathoming women, or a woman.

Recognizing the power of positive self-affirmations

Self-affirmations, for anyone who may not be entirely familiar with the topic, are, in my own words, phrases we say aloud and direct towards ourselves that aim to manifest positivity.

We’re certainly moving in the right direction, but … More Read this before approaching someone about their mental health
