Express Your At-Home Self-Care with Each Mind Matters on Instagram and Facebook

Update: We realize that taking a break from social media may be part of your self-care. Because of that, we’re extending the contest through the end of the month to give you more opportunities to participate when it’s right for you. 


What do you get when you combine self-care with self-expression? 

Our annual lime green social media contest is back, and this is your chance to show us the way(s) you take care of yourself at home and your mental health in a creative way

From doodling and “downward dog” to posting your dance moves online, everyone has their way of reconnecting with themselves while elevating their mood and mental health. What’s yours?

Express your favorite way to practice at-home self-care on social media for a chance to win a goodie bag of inspirational and creative art supplies, plus some Each Mind Matters accessories!

Share a photo, video, or Story of you practicing self-care at home where lime green is featured prominently. Why lime green? It’s the official color of mental health awareness! Turning your social media lime green is a great way to help reduce stigma around mental health and show your support.

Need some ideas to get your creative juices flowing? 

Strike a favorite yoga pose on a lime green yoga mat. Play fetch with your doggo using a lime green ball or favorite toy. Why not share a mental-health-inspired doodle or poem written in lime-green? Or flex a lime green-inspired outfit, painted toenails or workspace.  

Planning a virtual hangout for St. Patrick’s Day and beyond? Dress up in lime green and take a screen grab on your computer or smartphone!
