2020 is your year, right? Maybe that first full week of work threw you off a bit from your grand scheme of gym classes, meditation, organizing and such. We get it. Life happens. Just because you might have had a rocky start to your New Year’s resolutions doesn’t mean you can’t still work towards being your best self. You missed some journaling and workouts? Okay! Every day is a new day to start over and try again. Below we have some tools and resources for you to get to the you that you want and deserve.
She Did That
Renae Bluitt (the powerhouse behind the In Her Shoes brand), has a documentary about Black women entrepreneurs that is sure to get you amped about shaping your own financial future. You don’t have to be a woman to be inspired by the gems dropped by the likes of Lisa Price (Carol’s Daughter founder), Luvvie Ajayi (I’m Judging You author), Melissa Butler (Lip Bar founder) and other dynamic creatives. The best part? You don’t even have to leave home to get into this goodness. If you don’t feel like heading to Target to snag a copy, you can go to Amazon or iTunes to give it a whirl.
Everybody needs a little woo-sah in their lives. Between work, family, friends, and everyday life stuff, you have to get in some slow, focused time on yourself, even if it’s just a few minutes a day. That’s where Eternal Sunshine comes into the picture. This handy dandy app offers a plethora of ways to center and calm yourself. There are daily mantras, guided meditations, mindfulness rituals, book suggestions and more. Plus, it’s free!
