Honouring Blackness in Yoga Spaces - 4 Essential Black Yogis
Yoga has been an important part of my lived experience for the past three years. Through my practice, I have been able to confront issues relating to my anxiety, self-esteem, body confidence and self-compassion. Rolling out my battered and sweat-stained mat is the first thing I do every morning and the last thing I do every night. Recently, as with every other avenue of my life, I have made the conscious decision to expand and diversify. Diversify my hobbies. Diversify the content that I consume. Diversify the books that I read and the music that I listen to. For the most part, this has been immensely beneficial to my mental health and has further enriched my experience as a black twenty-something.

Why Buying Direct-to-Consumer Mattress is The Smartest Choice
Why Buying a Direct-to-Consumer Mattress is the Smartest Choice (For Your Body & Your Wallet) I’ve recently hit a major life milestone— my boyfriend and I have moved in together. The first week was stressful: our couch couldn’t fit up the staircase, and our internet installation kept getting pushed back despite waiting all day for its arrival. However, our top-priority purchase (our Lull Mattress) was thankfully the one that didn’t fail us. In fact, it exceeded our expectations.
Surviving a pandemic with a rare chronic illness.
COVID-19 shaped the whole world in the past year. Disregarding social class, age, gender, and ethnicity, it affected everyone. However, the pandemic life has been even more challenging for those of us who have severe health conditions.

How I'm Reaching My Health Goals This Year
In 2018, I was at my personal rock bottom. I wasn't completely happy with the job I was working, the city I was living in. I was living in a tiny studio apartment with paper-thin walls. I tried to apply to graduate programs for the second time but failed. My target universities rejected me and my safety schools didn't offer enough aid for me to say yes.

How Quitting Caffeine Changed My Life
I never thought I’d be writing an article with this title. That’s because coffee has been my beloved a.m. companion for the past 15 years. “Wake up and smell the coffee” wasn’t just an idiom for me, but the foundation of my whole morning routine.
I universe you...
It happened on a Friday. You know, the day the world tell us TGIF. Well don’t believe them, because sometimes Friday doesn’t offer us anything to be thankful for. Or at least that what I thought...and this is the day it all began.

Mind your own business!
Mind your own business! Finally …. I had moved out of that dingy old apartment in an extremely poor neighborhood! Now I could afford something nicer since I was finally finished with college and was working. My scholarships paid the lion's share of the tuition while my small inheritance paid the rest, Thank Goodness! Now the only things I had to worry about were keeping this wonderful roof over my head, staying warm, and feeding myself…... on a regular basis ……. that would be nice.
Lost and found
To some extent this is about getting older. A time when you can start to forget if you took your pills or not. You can’t for the life of you find where you stored the hand blender. You can’t remember to whom you lent the paint mixer. A time when the mind starts to go and you have to adapt. I started writing notes in my little black book. A nice gift I received for Christmas. Mostly to-do notes. An occasional drawing. Lots of math from the market where I sell many varieties of fresh cut flowers. And a new bad habit. All my passwords. And phone numbers. My client list and recent orders. Email addresses. It makes this little black book important and I take it everywhere. It’s not a diary but I can kind of read between the lines of my to-do lists and extract a journal of sorts. Sometimes I leave myself little notes in the tiniest of script. They are mostly self improvement notes. You know the kind. I will be less controlling. That sort of thing. Or I copy inspirational quotes. It’s quiet now so I’m going through the pages at a slower rate. It’s winter and it’s Covid lockdown. And I am bored.

Little Black Book of Symbols
As with all good and interesting things in my life, my tale begins with a book. It was a book in a bookstore where I was browsing to see if I could find something new and interesting to read. A I walked along the shelves and tables, I tripped on the carpet and, literally, a book fell off of the table I bumped into, and landed at my feet. I am not the most physically graceful person, so that was not teally an unusual occurrence. However, when I picked the book up to put it back on the table, I noticed that there was a drawing of a large eye in the cover, and that eye seemed like it was looking right at me. And I do mean actually looking at me!
