Today is World Mental Health Day. This important day recognizes the 450 million people worldwide that suffer from mild to serious mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and self–esteem– all of which disproportionately affect women around the world. Recognizing that mental health issues are one of the greatest challenges women face today, Philosophy created the hope & grace initiative which pledges a continuous commitment to support mental health and wellbeing. Philosophy will donate 1% of its U.S. profits for mental health efforts so you can directly support this initiative by ordering some of their fabulous skin care products today. Below are some of my personal Philosophy favorites including the amazing grace body emulsion and the when hope is not enough gel-oil mask. We all have a family member or friend who struggle with mental illness who could use some support so why not shop to do good and feel good!

In honor of Mental Health Day, below are some 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.
