Today is a day of love millions of people are anticipating… But, Valentine’s Day could spark mental health issues in millions more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As Valentine’s Day arrives, Seasonal Affective Disorder is already in effect for many. Some reports say, suicide hotlines can receive twice as many calls on Valentine’s Day. 💔 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The cold winter months certainly bring isolation to many, especially on days like today, where social media feeds are filled with expectations + reminders of what you might not have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ STOP what you’re doing and go send a text to someone who needs reminded that they are loved, cherished, and seen today. If you go out, put up post it notes with a message of hope. If you know of a widow, single dad, lonely friend etc. go the extra mile and do something for them - it doesn’t have to be a lot to mean a lot. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LETS SHOW UP FOR PEOPLE TODAY! Throw around love like confetti 🎉

We can’t go another day without telling you about this friend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you own a “Because You Matter” T-shirt, you have @lifeofkatielee to thank! ✨ She is an amazing artist, who so selflessly gave of her talent + time to us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I remember getting sent pictures one day of all the possible design options she had lettered for us to choose from. I was overwhelmed because they were all SO good 🤭 - I didn’t know how we were going to choose just one! After days of elimination, we ended up picking the one you proudly wear on your shirts today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Beyond her contribution to our store + merch, she has been a vital encourager to our team, a cheerleader for what’s to come, and someone we can always count on for help! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you, Katie, for all you’ve done! HUNDREDS of people now wear your art as a symbol of hope - it’s pretty amazing! You’ve made a mark on our hearts, and certainly, many others.🤍
Science facts 🔬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t know if you’re anything like us, but this winter season has felt long and a little dreary. 🥱 BUT HEY! Let's head into the weekend with a smile on our face + share it with others! It’s been scientifically proven to help boost your mood ... keep reading! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Smiling can trick the body into helping you elevate your mood because the physical act of smiling actually activates neural messaging in your brain. A simple smile can trigger the release of neural communication boosting neuropeptides as well as mood-boosting neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin. HOW COOL IS THAT 😱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re not doctors, so don’t take our word for it, but there’s no harm in giving it a try 😉 Happy Weekend! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Site: verywellmind.com
