Best of Our Blogs: March 31, 2017

My inbox and podcast are filled with beauty, and health and wellness tips. People who take care of their physical health are cool. I want to drink smoothies and eat acai bowls with them.

But don’t you wish we could talk about emotional health in the same way?

Wouldn’t it be nice if discussing things like medication, therapy and other forms of emotional self-care were treated with the same acceptance and ease with which we talk about our physical well-being?

While it may never be sexy to talk about our emotional wellness, we can work on talking about it without fear and judgment.

Let’s start by reading, sharing and talking about our top posts this week!
