About The Book
Prioritize your wellbeing with these 150 self-care exercises designed specifically to help Black women revitalize their outlook on life, improve their mental health, eliminate stress, and self-advocate.
Between micro- and macro-aggressions at school, at work, and everywhere in between, it’s tough to prioritize physical and mental wellness as a Black woman, especially with a constant news cycle highlighting Black trauma. Now, with The Self-Care for Black Women you’ll find more than 150 exercises that will help you radically choose to put yourself first. Whether you need a quick pick-me-up in the middle of the day, you’re working through feelings of burnout, or you need to process a microaggression, this book has everything you need to feel more at peace.
You’ll find prompts like:
-Map out your feelings about a microaggression
-Make a list of your safe spaces
-Detail out an entire day dedicated to your self-care
It’s time to put yourself first and prioritize your self-care once and for all—and this book is here to help you do just that.
Why We Love It
“Self-Care for Black Women is so wonderful in its specificity. In a world where the self-care space is dominated by white women, even the mention of self-care without race is indirectly for white women. And there’s a big difference. The way that women of color, specifically Black women, experience misogyny and racism in tandem, can create a sense of world weariness that nags at the mind, body, and soul. It’s more important now than ever for Black women to prioritize their self-care and celebrate what they have to offer the world.”
