Notes: Free classes at Harvard?! Sounds too good to be true, but it's the real deal! Many of the classes have the option to go a little deeper and get a certificate at a minimal cost. I have a list of classes I plan to take over the next year!
RECIPES FOR SELF-CARE
Notes: I first made this tea blend for my my mom, but after trying it out I now have it almost daily! I use this tea as a mild sedative that helps with sleeplessness caused by anxiety.
Notes: Golden Milk can work wonders for inflammation due to turmeric. There are a ton of recipes out there, some using ghee, vanilla bean and other delicious additions, so be sure to find one that you love! This recipe is vegan, but I prefer using raw unfiltered honey as my sweetner and cashew milk because it's thicker. As you experiment you'll learn what works for you!
Notes: This is one of my favorite masks for sure. I have a pretty oily t zone and bentonite clay has always worked wonders for that. I have used mask recipes with apple cider vinegar and they stink. The addition of lavendar oil may seem small, but it pretty much masks the odor and adds to the calm of your self care moment.
Notes: Tom Bilyeu is the man. On his show Impact Theory, he interviews some of the greatest minds on the planet in search of what makes them go. Prepare to be moved. Tom is one of the best interviewers I've ever seen. His questions go deeper than the average. You're in for a treat, get ready for the rabbit hole.
Notes: I kid you not, my fiance and I used the advice in this video to raise our credit scores and then I passed the knowledge off to my sister who raised hers like 100 points. K Fitz explains everything so simply, you just have to actually do the work. Let me know if it works for you!
UNDERSTANDING THE FIGHT FOR EQUALITY
Notes: "The 1619 Project is an ongoing initiative from The New York Times Magazine that began in August 2019, the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative." I had to copy and paste their description because I couldn't do better. Profound doesn't begin to explain.
Notes: As an African American woman, I completely understand what Malcolm X meant when he said that the most disrespected, unprotected and neglected woman in America is the black woman, but we must not make light of the ignored plight of the indigenous woman across the Americas. This article is a great start to understanding a huge problem.
