Happy Friday! How did your week go?

This week was challenging for me. However, I’m proud of myself for pushing through it and I’m ready to relax this weekend.

If you are feeling down or having a tough time, my dear friend Emelda shared these three wonderful tips on how we can take good care of ourselves.

Practice mindful meditation. (Emelda suggests beginning with just 5 to 7 minutes a day.)

Try sound healing. (I actually practice sound healing every night before I go to bed. It’s very therapeutic and it can be healing.)

Take a digital detox from the internet and social media. (This weekend would be perfect for unplugging from our phones!)

THE LASTING LEGACY OF SOUL TRAIN

The Lasting Legacy of Soul Train by Sam Sanders on NPR

Do you listen to NPR’s It’s Been a Minute? It’s one of my favorite radio shows/podcasts on the public radio station.

Last weekend, when I was driving back home from Womxnhouse Detroit, I was listening to the episode about “The Lasting Legacy of Soul Train.”

I remember watching Soul Train on Saturdays when I was a kid. And the commercials were also my favorite because it was the only time you got to see more Black people featured on TV ads.

“Without Don Cornelius, there really is no Soul Train,” Sam says of the show. Sam discusses the impact Soul Train had on Black culture, music, dance, fashion, and more.

Take a listen to host Sam Sanders’ special episode here.


WISHING YOU A PEACEFUL WEEKEND! xoxo
