So, we put together a list of ways to lean into your wellness and hopefully uncover sparks of joy that leave you feeling relaxed and centered.
Take A Media Break - If you shut your screen off for a few hours, you’ll still feel more refreshed and productive.

Check Out a Podcast – Sick and tired of watching and hearing dreading news about rona? Well take a break and flip the switch to a joyful podcast to hear great uplifting, spiritual, and hilarious content. Here’s a list of 45!
Meditate - Practicing meditation is a great way to carve out time just for you to check in on how you’re feeling, help calm your mind, and take a few minutes to distress. Definitely check out this app called Liberate which is a great meditation app for Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color.
Connect with A Therapist – Vital mental health support is needed now more than ever especially for communities of color and lower-income communities who have been hit the hardest by this crisis. There’s a great app called Ayana which is an online therapy app for marginalized and intersectional communities.
Take A Nice Walk – Whether you enjoy walking, jogging, or running, take advantage of the outdoors by walking around your block or a nearby area to enjoy the view, gather some sunshine, and get a moment of peace. Check out how the organization GirlTrek encourages Black women to take walks and join a great health movement in the process. Remember to wear your mask!
Ring A Friend – Though we’re physically distancing from one another, social connections don’t disappear. So Facetime, message, WhatsApp, or give a shout out to a friend or family to share how things are going.
