Personal Update: Work and Finals

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing? It has been awhile! Thank you to all of those who stuck with me during my little blogging break. It was a much needed break for my own mental health. As most of you know, I am a full time student and a full time + worker. This means I work at least 40 hours a week, but most times, it ends up being 50+ hours on top of school. And then, I still have my baby, Love-Brain to manage! I am not going to lie to you, it has been quite...

Dig a Little Deeper: Double Product Feature

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing? I hope you are all doing so fantastic and healthy. Happy beginning of November!

Social Media SUCKS.

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  Today I want to talk about the necessary evil, social media. I have talked about social media countless times but somehow it just seems as if it is always a constant theme. Let’s be honest, social media is a huge part of our lives now. I try to avoid the notification that comes up weekly about my screen time because I am not at all proud of it. What is even more contradicting is the fact that I always feel worse after being on social media. I generally never feel inspired or...

Life Update

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  It has been a couple weeks since my last blog post and I am sorry about that. I have been the busiest I have probably ever been in my life. For those who know me, you know that I am a busy bee and tend to thrive in chaos, but lately I have been so busy it feels like my eyes are crossing! In this blog today, I wanted to just give a life update and share some of the pearls of wisdom I have learned recently. I first want to start...
