  • I defiantly agree that all of these tips improve your mental health. I have been doing a lot of these lately and I feel so much better and happier.

  • This is such a heart warming post. My favorite thing you included was Acts of Kindness. It is the little things we can do that turn into big things.
    It made me laugh that Sleep was #1 even though that is not really an option for college students haha

  • I love the list! Sadly, there are so many things to keep track of on a daily basis that we often forget about our mental wellness. Some of these things feel like they would be no-brainers but I know I often forget or don’t focus on some things that I should be. One thing that I really started to work on this year is stress management!

  • Thanks for this wonderful informations. This is such a big help! I have a problem in sleeping and this really affects my daily activities. Thanks to these gummies which I bought from I am now very productive, which really helps me think well. We really need to take good care of our mental health.

  • Coping with stress and pressure has always been a tough one for me. I would always find myself turning to point number 9 HAHA… But I don’t really drink so much anymore. Smokes, yes.

    But I do find that the pressures of not having enough time in the day to get things done make me turn to alternative solutions. Like using study pills to keep me more focused and productive.
