When is World Mental Health Day?

Throughout our lives, we have been told to be conscious of our physical health and to take care of it by exercising, eating right, and getting proper sleep. But something that is often overlooked because of the stress on physical health, is mental health. Our mental health includes our psychological, emotional, and social well-being. It not only affects how we feel, act, and think, but it also helps to determine how we are able to relate to others, make choices, and handle stress. Taking proper care of our mental health is a vital part of our existence from childhood all the way through adulthood. That’s why World Mental Health Day was created and why it is still celebrated and observed each year since its creation. read more

When is World Teacher’s Day?

When you think back to your childhood, your teen years, and well into adulthood, there are probably people that stand out when you think of those who have changed your life and helped to shape you into the person you are today. Some of those people may be family members or friends, but many of them might also be your teachers. Teachers play a huge role in who we were during our formative years and who we grow up to be. They show us patience, support, love, and are by our sides when we are figuring life out. And though you have expressed your appreciation and thankfulness to them throughout the course of your life, there is a special day for them to shine, and for you to show that unending gratitude. Though we think teachers should be celebrated every day, World Teachers’ Day comes once a year and when it does, it is time to show the educators in your life just how special they are, while advocating for them as well.
