2021 is the year of transformation. This Black History month, I wanted to do something fun with my brand and allow you all to be a part of a sustainable initiative that I’ve been working on within my business. But first, here are some cool ways you can put efforts into Black History month. Support black owned businesses by purchasing products if you can, reposting content on social media, and if you have made a purchase, share your review with others! Sharing is a vital part of helping businesses get visibility. Black History Month is also a great way to encourage Non-BIPOC to be proactive and research to learn more about Black history. There is no excuse for lack of information and knowledge about Black history as it is rich and runs deep. We can all benefit from learning more about Black History.
A new way I am pouring into myself this month is practicing meditation. I’ve only been practicing for about one week now and I’m starting out with mostly guided meditations. I feel so much more lighter and calmer in my spirit after practicing meditation. I continue to aim for working out five days a week either in the morning or before I go to bed at night. I also enjoy watching TD Jakes preach on YouTube to uplift my spirit. Finding new ways to love yourself makes your wellness journey exciting because you challenge yourself to learn new things about yourself. Here is a guided meditation that I enjoy.
Practicing long and slow breaths while meditating in a comfortable position is super healthful when meditating. Usually the music playing on the guided meditation videos are slow which helps me to match my breathing with the rhythm and become more relaxed. I usually meditate for about 10 minutes out of my day and sometimes longer. Meditating with affirmations is a really powerful way to raise your vibrations and change your frequency. Some people say “When we pray, we are talking to God. When we meditate, we hear God speaking to us.”
Sharing with others is a great way to manifest abundance. During the month of February, I am opening up the C$BNYC pre-owned shop for you to consign your items in my shop. If you have fashion pieces you would like to sell over the course of February, shoot me an email @ email@example.com and let’s connect. When you sell with us, you will receive payout on half of the items’ final sold price. Consignment is a great way to be sustainable and contribute to a circular fashion economy. A circular fashion economy is one that supports and makes sure a product is best used over a period of time. Things like getting fashion pieces tailored, making sure the supply chain is transparent, and abiding by the care label are all ways you can sustain fashion. Do you practice sustainable fashion? If so, what are some ways you contribute to the sustainability of fashion?
Are you celebrating Valentines day this year? I stumbled upon Akoma day which is similar to Valentines day. Akoma day is a cultural holiday which celebrates values that are important to the progression of the Black community. This holiday, founded by Montsho and Nwasha Edu, is celebrated from February 14th until February 20th. The Akoma is an Ancient Ghanaian symbol which represents patience and it is often said “someone who is patient has another heart which is located in their stomach.” Celebrants are encouraged to practice for seven days self love and love for others through patience, endurance, and understanding. I am here for Akoma Day in comparison to Valentines Day. It is also encouraged to shop black owned businesses when buying gifts for your loved one to celebrate.
