Week One: Mental Health

What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. – Plutarch

Welcome to Graceful Grit!

In 2018, we talk more about our mental health than we ever have, before. As a society, we are getting more comfortable with concepts like self-care and mental wellness. We are learning to be gentler with ourselves and others. We have made progress; however, there is always something to learn and room to grow. In that spirit, this week, Graceful Grit will be delving into the topic of mental health and wellness.

Monday, Lorraine explores the importance of taking care of your own mental well being in, “Creativity for Mental Health.”

Tuesday, Alyssa uses her own experience to make a case for the men in our lives to embrace wellness in, “Why We Need Men To Seek Therapy.”

Wednesday, Keria talks about how she learned to truly listen to herself in, “Mindfulness and Meditation.”

Thursday, Angel explores the vital role female friends play in the lives of moms in, “Importance of a Tribe.”

Friday, Julie discusses the challenges of living with mental illness in, “A Normal Life.”

We are excited and thankful you are here. We hope you can join us all week as we jump into this important issue.
