Say it with Sentimoji ™!
We all struggle to express our feelings sometimes, especially when texting. It can be even tougher to find the right words if we’re having a hard time with our mental health.
That’s why NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, created the “Sentimoji™” emoji sticker pack. Sentimoji™ lets anyone show they need a little support or reach out to help others – without saying a word.
So the next time you want to show you care, or ask for help if you’re having a bad day, say it with Sentimoji™!
The best way to achieve your goals is to keep them top of mind, so that you’re always consciously and subconsciously looking for ways to move yourself closer to them – and a vision board is the perfect tool to help you do that.
You can make a vision board in 6 simple steps:
Create a list of goals you’d like to achieve
Find pictures that represent your goals or symbolize the future you wish to create.
Make a collage out of all these images on a bulletin board,
Add motivational “affirmation words” and inspiring quotes that represent how you want to FEEL, like “courage,” “love,” or “imagination.”
Take a few moments to review your vision board every day,
Take our online youth mental health test—it's free, quick, confidential, and scientifically validated.
