“The Color of Wellness”

Building Better Wellness in the Black Community

Our Why?

Our families cannot do it alone.

Thousands of families of color  today are struggling with wellness challenges as they strive and work hard to just to make it and handle all of the barriers that are systematically placed upon them. 

 

 

We are  exhausted by the continuous effort, and deep down, are in need of a mental and social wellness boost to surmount these challenges.

But the truth is, we can’t solve life’s problems on the same consciousness level that created them, we need support and training to help you realize your full potential.

 

As black nurses we understand both sides of the coin.  We understand the socioeconomical struggle, as well as the inner workings of the healthcare system.

 

Families often times trust us (Nursing has been the most trusted profession 20 years in a row) and we are here to serve as a face that you know, like, and trust. 

 

From supporting mothers give birth, guiding families through a death/dying process, WE ARE HERE. 

Health is a state of body, wellness is a state of being!

Why is ‘Wellness’ so important?

Wellness is the state of good mental, physical and emotional health. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. Therefore, everyone needs to achieve optimal wellness to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.

What makes us good at our job?

Research shows when you have caregivers who look like us, talk like us and share the same ethnicity;  we can relate to them better. It gives you the emotional confidence to better open up and vent about things hence you get better care and support compared to when you talk to people of other ethnicities. We have an incredible team of black health care practitioners who are motivated to contribute towards a healthier black community through the ‘Color of Wellness™️ ’ platform. We firmly believe that everyone should have access to wellness, well-being, and to a holistic lifestyle. So often this is reserved for those who can afford it. We are asking black nurses to use our points of awareness as a call to action in educating their communities right where they are.

Our Brand

The pandemic brought by Covid-19 has turned our world upside down. It has made us all go through extremely hard times, be it emotional, financial, or spiritual. One thing that this pandemic has surely taught us is self-care can’t be neglected at any cost. Unfortunately, the black community houses many socioeconomic barriers that inhibits the focus on healthcare and wellness a lot which resulted in higher deaths among black community as compared to other races which prompted a thought in Michelle’s mind that how can black nurses contribute to the wellness of the black community? This laid the foundation of our magazine. The Color of Wellness magazine™️ has been established with the motivation to make the black community realize the importance of self-care for a healthier and prosperous society.  As an empty lantern provides no light, self-care is the fuel that makes your light shine brightly.

Self-care is giving the world the best of you, instead of what is left of you!
