Wellness

renew yourself
We can all agree that this has been a pretty stressful year and most of us are trying to figure out ways to decompress daily. Maya Angelou once said “If I am not good to myself, how can I expect anyone else to be good to me?” In this...
Healthy Habits
If this quarantine taught us anything at all we at least know the importance of committing to healthy habits, mind-body, and soul. We are all currently living in some pretty trying times and it's important, now more than ever, to maintain a sense of normalcy and inner peace. One way...
reduce anxiety
I am consistently trying to shamelessly find ways to reduce anxiety-like many of you who have had to deal with it at one point or another. It can come from challenged thinking, a worried heart, or even internal spiritual conflict. But no matter why you individually struggle with anxiety,...
Virtual Date Night Ideas
Need some virtual date night ideas? Being in the house alone doesn't mean you have to disconnect from your friends and loved ones. Actually, this is a great time to reconnect with the people you love most. With texting, phone calls, social media, and video calling, you have the opportunity...
self-care
Self-care is sometimes looked at as the occasional bubble bath and candle burning, but truthfully it is much more practical than that. Self-care is about making sure you are good in mind, body, and soul on the daily and most times, that just means drinking enough water and getting enough...
black content
With all the chaos going on in the world, a great deal of us have been staying home and getting all caught up on the movies and tv shows we've come to love. However, binge-watching for days and weeks on end probably has you searching for something new to...
Black Girl Brunching
I think we can all agree that one of the things we miss the most during this quarantine process is what we like to call black girl brunching! In recent years, brunch has become a little more than just that delicious sweet spot between breakfast and lunch. Now, it's actually...
Wellness apps are actually one of the biggest saving graces we have when it comes to staying healthy. When the convenience of technology meets personal-development and purpose, it creates a space for us to align our mind, body, and soul with just a press of a button. This way, we...

Although winter is on its way out, flu season is still well underway and CODVID-19 has many of us shook. The other day we saw a meme that compared empty toilet paper shelves to 'full' produce and vitamin shelves at local supermarkets and shopping centers. The fact is our best...

Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophy and practice that teaches you how to create an environment of balance and harmony using principles of the natural world. Using direction, color, elements, and symbolism as indicators of both good fortune and misfortune, Feng Shui helps to promote general well-being in health,...
We go to the grocery store and throw yogurt in the cart with the idea that it would go good with our granola in the morning or that our children might enjoy it for lunch, but what's often overlooked is that yogurt may be the answer to some of...
A letter to my 20 year old self, where do I start? - Hindsight is 20/20 right? Tackling this from that perspective feels much better than being regretful. I always say regret is a useless notion because ultimately, we can only be present, and only move forward – even...
Going vegan
I'll be the first to admit that going vegan isn't easy. In the beginning, it doesn't seem all that appealing to give up meat, eggs, and dairy all at once, either. You think about letting go all the foods you love and kinda start freaking out. It can be especially...
If you're coming into the new year with some major goals in mind, then you might need a little help getting yourself on the right track. Here are 3 apps to help you set yourself up for a powerful new year. Headspace: Meditation & Sleep Meditation alone is known to improve...
Confession! For 2020 I am committing myself to a wellness journey, and part of that journey includes losing unwanted pounds that in my opinion holds me back from being my best self. I typically do not share content around fitness and different types of diets unless specifically related to hair...
