As the days start getting longer and the weather begins to warm up, it's the perfect time to welcome spring into our lives. Spring is a time of renewal and rejuvenation, and it offers the perfect opportunity to reset our wellness routines.
As we emerge from the cocoon of winter, let's shed some of our old habits and embrace new ones that nourish our bodies, minds, and spirits.
As Black millennial women, we often prioritize the needs of others over our own. We take care of our families, friends, and careers, all while trying to maintain our own health and well-being. But one area of our lives that is often neglected is our sexual wellness.
Sexual wellness encompasses a wide range of things, from practicing safe sex and getting regular STI screenings to exploring our bodies through masturbation and experimenting with different types of sexual pleasure. It's a vital part of our holistic wellness and can have a positive impact on every aspect of our lives.
As Black women, we often face unique challenges in a world that often ignores, undervalues, and isolates us. This can take a serious toll on our mental and physical health, and can even shorten our lives. But it doesn't have to be this way.
The Inner Circle is a virtual membership designed specifically for women like us. It's a safe and supportive space where you can connect with other women and share your experiences, learn from one another, and grow together.
