Every Valentine's Day is special in my book. These are five free things that can make the day even more memorable!

1. Cards

In 2020, Valentine's Day cards are completely underrated! Send/give your partner a sweet love note in a card to show your affection. They last forever, so they can keep them for years to come. Plus, you don't have to spend money- grab some scraps of paper and put together an adorable hand made gift.

2. Do a chore they hate.

Whether it's cooking, dishes, or laundry, doing an extra chore that's not on your list can really show how much you appreciate and love your other half. Regardless of how long it takes, it often means the most when you put in the elbow grease and knock out something they hate to do.

3. Give them a massage

After a long day, nothing feels better than laying down in your bed or on the couch and getting comfy and cozy with your spouse. Adding a massage to the mix spices it up and relaxes them (perfect for couples that love gifts relating to time together). Adding a movie/music, essential oil, and kisses can really amp up the environment and relay the love.

4. Be the chef

Find snacks from your house and create a "gourmet" meal together as if you were a contestant on a famous cooking show. Pretend that you are the judge, then use the same ingredients and be the chef! Never use foods you must purchase, instead opt to try and create from what you have.

5. Commit an act of service together

Find a local food bank, a soup kitchen, a nursing home, or head to some local nonprofit and see how you can help them out for Valentine's Day (or any day!!) with your sweetheart for some quality time together that will make a BIG impact. If you and your partner are crafty, look back at option one and make cards for those alone in hospitals and hand them out.

Those are five free things to do this Valentine's Day with your significant other!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
