The craziness of daily life can take a toll on anyone’s health–no matter who you are. But as a Black woman, it’s important to step back and take extra care of your mind and body when you feel like you’re really going through it.
Studies show that stress presents more consequences for Black women than any demographic, so it might be time to embrace self-care and protect your health and well-being fiercely.
You can make self-care a part of your daily routine in many different ways like keeping a journal, vibing to cool music, meditating, reading, or treating yourself to a massage.
If you’re into that idea, then there’s even more good news for you: You don’t have to break the bank just to book a day of pampering at the spa. Here’s a roundup of some amazing massage tools that you can use from the comfort of your home.
