The Stories We Tell

Black Owned Businesses that support Self-care & Mental Health

By: Managing Editor Ciarra Williams

If we are honest, we have had days where we want to throw in the towel and stay in bed all day. However, with the everyday stresses life can bring, we could use a self-care day or week.

When life becomes overwhelming, we often push away the importance of stillness and honoring all that we are.

We find just about any excuse not to prioritize ourselves from time to time; how can we nourish others around us when our glass is half full?

If you can’t get away until you take your yearly trip just yet, try visiting some of the below local Black-owned businesses that will bring self-care right where you are.
