In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we have put together gifts that can help you or a friend fill your daily cup. Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho shares the importance of asking yourself some daily check-in questions to help you focus on your mental health. Things like sleep, water, and taking stock of the good things in your life can really shift your mood and help pull you out of unhelpful moods. Plus, stopping to show yourself some love is necessary - whether that's through journaling, exercise, or positive affirmations, here is a curated guide of self-care items that can help you connect to your own self every day.
