As a Black woman, you carry the world on your shoulders. You’re an advocate, mother, wife, sister and so much more to everyone else. The demands of your life can increase stress, anxiety and depression if you don’t learn how to set clear boundaries and make time for self-care on your terms.
As a “Strong Black” woman you have been taught that being strong on a consistent basis is a good thing. In more ways than one is this cultural norm leading to poor health outcomes for Black women including increases in mental, physical and emotional burnout. Learning how to take time for self-care shows the world that your health and well-being matter too.
