Caring for your mental health: Therapy and self-care

Those of us who follow the Olympics closely would have been aware of the shocking decision that Simon Biles, four-time Olympic gold medalist, made in the early stages of the Tokyo Olympics. Citing mental health concerns, Biles said said "We also have to focus on ourselves, because at the end of the day, we're human, too. We have to protect our mind and our body, rather than just go out there and do what the world wants us to do."

At the end of the day, gold medal or not, we're all human beings who have to prioritize our mental health. But sometimes, when too much is happening too fast, we often forget to do just that.

We're here to remind you today. We've gathered a list of amazing merchants you can depend on for self-care and to look out for your mental wellness.

The bottom-line: Putting (mental) health first

Although the topic of mental health is increasingly talked about these days, it still takes a backseat in our daily lives. Speaking about mental health is also seen as a taboo among many of us.

Think about it: we often talk about going to the gym to keep fit or visiting the doctor's when we are down with the flu or a fever. Taking care of our physical health seems like a given. But what about our mental health?

Remember, mental health impacts how we feel, think and behave each day. And along with our physical health, we've got to take care of our mental health.
