The phrase "mental hygiene".
I hate that this has become an accepted public health term. It always makes me think of this one graphic I saw in a teen health publication of someone flossing himself through the ears. The idea to be marketed here is practices that enforce being not-crazy, not mental images of cleaning the armpits of the mind. Please spare us.
Yeah, and Mental Floss. Whoa, so clever!
