Christine Laraine shares her mental health strategies.

This week, the Vancouver-based influencer spoke about the importance of “physical reminders” with her 43,000 followers.

In the candid Instagram post, the 28-year-old shared a series of photos showing off her “new bracelets”, which spelled out the words “patience” and “strength” with beads.

In the caption, the body image advocate explained that on one bad night, she used her bracelets and tattoo for support.

“The other night, as I was crying in bed worrying about the money, I happened to look down and see two things,” she wrote. “One was my recent tattoo saying ‘one life’ and the other was my two new bracelets that I bought at Little Words Project.”

The content creator revealed which words are “powerful” to her and why.

“‘One Life’ means being good enough, not perfect. A lot of my day-to-day worries feel silly when I stop to consider the big picture,” she said. “‘Patience’ represents being at peace with the slow growth of my Page, my entrepreneurial skills, my business, my mental health and meditation,” [and] ‘strength’ represents the ever-increasing resilience within me. When I reflect on everything that tried to break me, I feel powerful.”

At the end of her post, Laraine wrote about how physical reminders like tattoos and “positive words” can do wonders for mental health and confidence.

“Physical reminders can have an incredible impact on racing thoughts. Although tattoos are somewhat permanent, surrounding yourself with positive words and manifestations is amazing for your self-confidence…” she explained.

In the comments, fans thanked the social media star for her “important message”.

“Well said!” one follower commented alongside a red heart emoji.

“Beautiful words!” shared someone else.

“Really important message and I love the idea of ​​physical reminders,” added another.

Late last month, the self-love advocate called the TikTok trend “What I Eat in a Day” on Instagram.

In the post, she explained that the social media trend is “dangerous” because it promotes a “toxic” diet culture.

“I’ve seen many influencers share their diet plan. It ends up being a combination of a smoothie, small snacks, and a really big salad,” she wrote. “The perception of this lifestyle can be turbulent for those who struggle with eating disorders, are in remission, or feel great shame that they are always hungry.”
