Did you know that more than 450 million people worldwide suffer from mild to serious mental health issues – such as post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, self–esteem and financial stress – all of which disproportionately affect women around the world?
Philosophy made it their mission to support mental health through their hope&gace initiative which dedicates 1% of ira sales toward the cause. Using the funds, they award multiple financial grants each year to local organizations working to empower women through the promotion of mental health and wellbeing, and the prevention and treatment of related issues.
So, for EVERY Philosophy product you buy (no limitations) you’re helping them help women who are suffering.
And since it’s Mental Health Day tomorrow (Tuesday) here are some wonderful tips from Gabrielle Bernstein, best-selling author, meditation expert, and speaker brought to you by glamour.com :
- Begin each day positively. Happiness is your choice, so if you wake up feeling grumpy, remember that you can choose to be happy.
- Think of yourself as a lighthouse: It’s OK to feel your feelings, good or bad (in fact, it’s much better than disassociating from them), but use the lighthouse idea to rise above the trauma in your life and allow it to flow freely around you.
- Move. The human body needs to move, and movement is imperative for the lymphatic system to work properly and to oxygenate your cells. Bounce, jump, dance, or do whatever it takes to move the tension out of your body and get your blood flowing.
