Monday Motivation: Mental Health Check-in

In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness month, we will be sharing some great mental health resources created by female experts we love. 

Before we get into these resources, I would like to share some helpful daily habits that could  improve your mental health. It is important to note that habits which help improve mental health look different for every woman, so you need to find out which ones give you the most joy and stick to them. 

Some women, like our founder Aisha, de-stress through physical activities like sports, cooking or DIY projects. She is always up for an adventure like biking, hiking or renovating certain areas of her house. If you also fall under this category, habits you could cultivate are;

  • Gardening
  • Power walks 
  • Morning run
  • Exercising regularly/ Creating a fitness routine
  • Home improvement and decorating projects

On the other hand, there are some women, like me, who enjoy more laid back activities and staying in-doors. Some helpful habits suitable for you if you belong to this group include;

  • Yoga
  • Gratitude Journaling 
  • Home workout via fitness apps
  • Practicing mindfulness a.k.a living in the moment
  • Hosting virtual events like zoom parties or movie nights with friends
  • Picking a day to treat yourself to a home spa session (facial, skin care, aromatherapy and a long bath)

Whether you prefer more physical or laid back activity, it is still important to get as much sleep as possible, eat well, think positive thoughts about ourselves, be kind to ourselves, give ourselves grace and be our own biggest cheerleaders especially on tough days. Remember, we are all doing the best we can. 

Let's get into these professionals and the services they offer;

Davidra Bazemore-Blue, Mental Wealth Services  

Davidra Bazemore-Blue  is a clinical social worker with over 15 years of experience. "I'm excited to coach leadership teams on leading workforces during times of crisis; helping them navigate stressors and demands in and out of the workplace that we've never seen before."

Jenithursday Miller, Shawty Ambition

Jenithursday's peer service guides women to finding their life's passion and starting their mental health journey. She believes that you can "Choose a life of abundance and always focus on what is possible."

Melissa Barker, Phoenix Project 

Melissa Barker built a digital platform to make trauma-informed healing and care more accessible. "The mission of Phoenix Project is to ensure that each and every person feels seen, heard and empowered to continue their own healing and growth."

Rachel Gurovich, Self-Care Seed Co 

Rachel Gurovich created the Self-Care Seed Co. to bring an end to the stigma attached to mental health through education. She is of the opinion that  "People can relate to Self-Care Seed Co’s content and understand that while they may feel unsupported or isolated in their healing journey, there are resources out there for them

Jasmine Lamitte, SocialWork Sage

Jasmine is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the Director of Mental Health in Los Angeles for 20 schools, she spreads her message through social media, while also encouraging people to visit her department  "My mental health department aims to 'heal the heart so the brain can learn.’’

I hope this post drives you to find habits or activities that will help you improve your mental health.Remember it is also okay to go see a professional and seek proper advice.

Don't forget to always put yourself first, and prioritize your mental health because you can't pour from an empty cup.

Have a great week!

Last year was truly one for the history books!  I can't believe that we managed to grow our sales at Bossy Cosmetics by over 10x from the previous year (thank you bosses!)  This is a brand that I started less than 3 years ago and people asked why I thought yet another "lipstick" was needed in the marketplace.  I spent much of 2021 showcasing that we are so much more than just a lipstick maker.  We are ALL about empowering women to look, feel, and do good in the world and I am so thrilled that we got the chance to do that!

For this reminder from the commercial success of the launch of a fantastic (I am biased but the several 5 star reviews back me up!) red lipstick, I say thank you to Cindy Gallop and every single woman and man that purchased this lipstick and shared about their experience on social media.  You not only supported our tiny little brand and Cindy Gallop herself but you restored for me the reason why I am building this company and the type of impact that I hope to share with 1 billion women over time.
