Self-Care for #BlackLivesMatter Activists!

  1. Maintain you relationships with family and friends. Social support is Key.
  2. Work off tension, anger, & depression with exercise. It also helps to keep your mind focused on the present.
  3. Celebrate your victories! Keep a list of the things that make you proud to be you.
  4. Practice ‪mindfulness. Take time to meditate, breath, stretch, and just be still (Gorski, 2015).
  5. Talk to an affirming Counselor or Therapist. Working through ‪trauma is hard to do alone.
