Words of wisdom

It’s nice to give a holiday gift that does more than just look good, and the new Notes to Self Collection is just such a gift.

The products, which can offer a bit of support to anyone going through a tough time, are ideal for recipients of all ages – or a holiday-season reminder to yourself.

Sahar Aker, a former television health reporter, remembers looking for the right words to help her heal from clinical depression. She began finding those words and images in books, online and through therapy.

Now, she’s launched the Notes to Self Collection to lift the spirits of others who might be in need of a little boost.

Mugs ($19 to $23), prints ($35) and T-shirts ($28 and $29) and more remind us to “Breathe,” “Focus on the Good” and “Just Be.”

Words to remember no matter the season, right?

And besides that little encouragement, the products also take a concrete step in helping, with 5 percent of the proceeds from each sale donated to Mental Health America to educate the public about mental illness and wellness.
