Founder Check-In: Coming out of the Pandemic Fog


If you are struggling with your mental health, it's okay to seek help. Help can come in various forms--a meditation app, online or in-person therapy, a friend or loved one to lean on, or help from a professional. 

Some of my personal favorites that have helped me tremendously are Insight Timer and Calm available via the app store, Black Girl Magik and Black Girl in OM. (Keep scrolling for more resources that I provide).


Whenever you're feeling nervous, anxious, or stressed, remember to pause and check in with yourself and ask yourself how you're doing. What happened just right before those feelings came up? These questions may lead you to understand when and why those feelings occur and what your possible triggers are.


Spirituality can come in various forms, too. Find what it is that brings you joy and lifts your spirits and set time aside to allow more of it into your life.


If you're like me and find yourself sitting for hours on end in front of a computer, set a time on your watch or phone every 2 hours to get up and walk around for at least 15 minutes. Or better yet, pause mid-day and go for a 30-minute walk outside. Fresh air and exercise can do the mind and body a great deal.

If you or someone you know are looking for help, I've listed a few resources that may be a good starting point. Remember to always do your own research to find what fits you best.
