The physical benefits of exercise are clear, but did you know working out can actually improve your mood and make you happier all around? That’s right, science shows that people who exercise on a regular basis are more fulfilled and have a clearer mind. The effect exercise has on our mental health and mood should not go unnoticed, as it’s one of the easiest and most accessible ways to get out of a rut. While many people go to the gym or pound the pavement in order to achieve a toned body and improve cardiovascular health, working out has many more benefits than what the eye can see. Over the last decade, scientists have looked at how exercise can boost brain function, elevates our mood, and contribute to how we view ourselves. In fact, exercise – of any kind – can have a hugely positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, and other mental health disorders. For those who aren’t a huge fan of the gym and cringe at the thought of lacing up those running shoes, the good news is even modest amounts of exercise can make a big difference.

Living with a mental illness is difficult and challenging in itself, let alone when you bring your loved ones into the mix. When someone you love has been diagnosed with a mental illness, it is important you have the tools to support them. Being supported and having a family that is willing to come together for their loved one who is suffering from a mental illness is incredibly important. This willingness to come together, accept the diagnosis, and move forward as a unit will make a world of difference. This is not to say doing so is easy or comes naturally, but it is important for the health and well-being of everyone affected. Denying that someone has a mental illness or disapproving of this individual will only make the situation worse and could create even more obstacles for your loved ones. Having the support of those who are closest to you – whether it be your biological family or chosen people – is critical to an individual’s recovery and well-being. Having the unwavering support of loved ones has been proven to help minimize the damage mental illness can inflict on a person. While this is undoubtedly a difficult situation, it…
Valentine’s Day is a holiday for couples who want to celebrate their love and relationship, but if you are single this can be one of the most miserable days of the year. Many people call Valentine’s Day “couples awareness day” for a reason, as the days – even weeks – leading up the holiday are filled with ads aimed at lovebirds. However, not everyone is in a relationship – and that’s OK. We should never be made to feel bad about ourselves for being single on Valentine’s Day, yet that is seemingly what happens year after year. It can be difficult to pry yourself away from social media and all the outward displays of love and romance, but it is important to do so. If you are single on Valentine’s Day, take a step back and be kind to yourself. This shouldn’t be a holiday that makes you wallow in your misfortune, but should rather teach you to practice self-love and respect for yourself. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being single, contrary to how you may feel. Your relationship status certainly shouldn’t hold you back from celebrating Valentine’s Day, if that is something you wish to do. There are…
