As more and more of us are becoming more aware of mental health we are learning the importance of self care. We are talking about it with our friends over wine, we are talking about it online and posting meme after meme about loving and caring for SELF. It was long over due too, right? Well, while many of us are learning to be nicer and more compassionate to self, some of us still find it incredibly challenging to do at the workplace. Understandably so because dealing with managers, coworkers, projects and deadlines can increase stress levels and be a bit overwhelming. I read an article on http://blackdoctor.org on how to protect your mental health at work. Click on the link below and check it out!

Being single during cuffing season can be tough.
Yesterday, I went to the mall with my best friend to try and grab some last-minute gifts, and I was surrounded by mushy couples everywhere. I’m not gonna lie, it made me feel some type of way. In fact, I looked over at her while we were on the escalator and said, “I want a boyfriend.” She responded, “Why?” (lol) And I simply told her, “Because I wanna come to the mall with him and do cute ass shit.”
Maybe not my most eloquent answer, but that’s the truth. There are plenty of moments that I find myself thinking, man, this would be cool with someone else here. And the holiday hoopla definitely doesn’t help ease the loneliness that can sometimes start brewing inside that heart this time of year, but you know what? This isn’t my first rodeo. I’ve survived plenty of single holiday seasons, and when I’m not being drowned in other people’s PDA, adorable IG pics or my own pity party (sigh), I remember that this season doesn’t have to be such a sob story for those who are riding it solo.
Here are 7 things you can do to remind yourself that being single during the holidays
