The mind is very powerful, especially when it comes to matters of mental health. It influences our thoughts, feelings, and actions. It also aids in determining how we manage stress, how we relate to others, and how we make choices.

Mental health affects everyone. Right now, we should all be practicing the importance of self-care.

This is also the perfect time to think twice about tossing out those coffee grounds after you brew. Used coffee grounds can be more diligent than you might think, and we encourage you to repurpose them for alternative uses other than finding their way straight to the garbage can.

Just in time for spring cleaning and a whole lot of disinfecting, or to dive into taking up a new hobby, coffee grounds are perfect to clean the kitchen sink.

Times like these call for some serious self-care while we continue to care for others. This allows the perfect opportunity to get familiar with how to make a DIY coffee hair mask or a DIY coffee face mask for naturally beautiful skin

DIY Coffee Hair Mask 

Caffeine in coffee stimulates hair follicles, which can help with thickening and strengthening your hair. This recipe, found here, will leave your hair healthier, smoother, and shinier.

DIY Face Mask 

Rub your face in some coffee — seriously. Coffee masks can help with irritation and swelling, dark spots, dry skin, and more. This recipe we curated from Beauty Banter for a simple and effective one will give your skin the wake-up call it needs.

 “Coffee and chill” is a new way (for some) to learn to relax. Drink up, chill out, use what you have wisely.
