Did You Know!

Minorities are less likely to receive diagnoses and treatment for their mental illness, have less access to and availability of mental health services and often recieve a poorer quality of mental health care. -U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health

The US House of Representatives proclaimed July as this special month in 2008, aiming to improve access to mental health treatment and services through increased public awareness. -NNED

Mental Illness is not a character flaw. It’s not something a person can just simply “get over.” It’s not a person’s fault. Mental health issues can be anything from dealing with particularly stressful periods to something more serious like depression or schizophrenia.

Look What Happens When I Channel My Energy😊

Happy Sunday guys and gals, hope it’s a good one so far. I finally got out of the bed, and walked into my office to get some things done. Yesterday was such a good day, didn’t want to ruin today by laying in bed all day! So about yesterday, I decided that I was going to channel my energy into some DIY projects. Now, I’m pretty creative when I want to be, but lately it’s been such a struggle. Well with that being said, I was thinking about things I wanted to sell in my online store, things that I actually use and things people will buy.  Products that are made with love with my on little fingers. So I have decided to make my own organic all natural products we use everyday, and the first thing I made was homemade lip balm. Yes, I know I’m excited too, 😃 and it came out perfect! I didn’t know how easy it was and how fun it was to make. I researched several ways online, things that are healthy and good for you. Then I was on my way to Hobby Lobby, oh what fun I can spend all my money in that store🤑! I had so much fun looking around and exploring all the things I could be making. Long story short I brought all the products I needed and headed home. Since being diagnosed with depression, I hear a lot about essential oils and what they can do to make your life a little better, so I brought tons of them.  I played around with and decided to make peppermint and citrus 🍊 balm!!! It smells amazing, peppermint essential oil gives off a cooling sensation and has a calming effect on the body. The orange oil also has that calming effect and is used for feelings of peace. Now, how cool is that?  Right now I need peace and a little calming. Yesterday was the best I stayed out practically all day, not taking a nap once. I felt great, looked great, and just had ball. I know I need to do that more often.  So here’s some pics of my finish product, they smell great and I think I did a pretty good job. My friends are going to be my test bunnies, so I package them all nice and pretty!! Hope you like, chat soon!!!😊💕
