1. ON “ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL” WELLNESS
“There’s so much information out there that it can be hard to decipher what we should actually be listening to and putting in/on our bodies. The notion of one-size-fits-all wellness, ‘no pain no gain,’ and the idea that wellness is only for certain groups of people [are also barriers]. Wellness and self-care are for absolutely everyone, and should feel good!” — Trinity Mouzon Wofford
2. ON SETTING BOUNDARIES
“You gotta realize people who don’t care about your well-being are not the people you want supporting you anyway. Yeah, money’s good, but if I’m gonna be sick or exhausted from it, sometimes it’s not worth it.” — Shakira Javonni
3. ON GETTING OLDER AND WISER
“The truth is we never figure it all out. Ever. You just have to enjoy the journey. I try to live my life more in the moment [and] be present. Not to be grim, but as we age, we have elders and loved ones start to pass, even friends, and you start to realize the preciousness of our time on earth.” — Margit Detweiler
4. ON UNLEARNING SCARCITY AND EMBRACING ABUNDANCE
“For most of my life, I felt compelled to say yes to every opportunity, campaign, and offer that came my way. There was this sense of fear that if I declined, I would never receive it again, and the door would be closed…I have to pause and process every invitation or offer that I’m lucky to receive and decline with grace when it’s not a full-on “yes” [that] brings value to all parties.” — Hitha Palepu
5. ON RECLAIMING YOUR SEX LIFE
“Sex is whatever you’re making it. It’s not dividing it into different categories like ‘foreplay’ and ‘sex.’ It doesn’t have to end in penetration of any kind. We [need to] move away from the idea that sex is only penetration. There are tons of folk of all genders and sexualities who do not like penetration.” — Dirty Lola
6. ON MAKING MOVEMENT MINDFUL
“[Your workouts] should help make what you’re doing in everyday life easier. If you’re not asked to lift 80 pounds in everyday life, why are you doing it in your workouts? Your workout should be an extension and an elevation of everyday movement – functional training.” — Anna Kaiser
7. ON STAYING HOPEFUL
“When I’m able to hear people’s stories and be with them in their pain, I get to witness a shift, and that gives me hope. And it’s not about me, it’s about stepping up to support one another, which always lightens the load and allows people to have a little more light in their lives.” — Naiylah Warren
