Dealing with mental health problems isn’t easy, I would know. I’ve been dealing with them my whole life and many of the years I kept silent about it all. Sometimes people over look the fact that somedays people with anxiety and/or depression struggle to get out of bed. And no, they can’t just will themselves to do things. I wish it worked that way. So today, a gentle reminder that it is perfectly okay if all you did today was breathe.

If you are an avid reader looking for new good books, check out Book Mark. I just discovered it today!

I now lack my parents fully stocked kitchen, but if I was home I would give this fall recipe a try. (And modify a few things to make it dairy free)

Moving to college or any big life change tends to bring along some kind of anxiety, here is a tip and two apps that I’ve found helpful so far.

An interesting article about riding your bike, I’m not sure if I am going to be using this much in the flat lands of Walla Walla, but it’s still good advice.

A good blog post if you are a fellow freshman starting college this fall.

A really cute store created buy a Youtuber in Utah.

Have a terrific weekend!
