Our WHY?

We closed out February, which was heart month; we opened up March as Women's month. Let's talk about Soulful Healing Academy Why? Soulful Healing Academy was created to help educate women on the importance of bridging the gap between physical health and mental health and genuinely taking care of ourselves. One thing that we all know is that women are the pillar of the family, of society, and as women, we tend to put ourselves last with the notion that everyone else has to be taken care of before YOU.

But we have to get out of that concept; I need to take care of everybody else before taking care of ourselves. Why is it so important to take care of SELF? Let me give you some alarming health statistics from the American Heart Association:

  • Cardiovascular diseases kill nearly 50,000 African American women annually.

  • Of African American women ages 20 and older, 49% have heart diseases.

  • Only 1 in 5 African American women believes she is personally at risk.

  • Only 58% of African American women are aware of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack.

  • Only 36% of African American women know that heart disease is their most significant health risk.

In addition to cardiovascular disease, let's talk about mental health. Women of color have the highest depression, anxiety, mental illness. We have to do better. We have to realize that being our BEST SELF doesn't mean being LESS. It means taking time out to love on YOU so that you can give of your BEST SELF. It's taking time to fill your cup; honestly, not just filling it up but letting it overflow so that it can flow into others' cups. It's time to...

Educate yourself. Take care of your heart. Take care of your health. Honor yourself because we are the pillar of the world.

As we celebrate Women's History Month and all the astonishing things we have done as women then and even now. Make sure you take time to care for yourself. You are worth the love and care you need. It's time to stop putting others first and time to put SELF first so that you can continue to walk in your POWER and your PURPOSE! It's time to teach our daughters what it means to fully take care of SELF and stand in their POWER! It's time to teach them that their health is important!

Happy Women's History Month!
