The Privilege of Wellness at Energi with @ChinaeAlexander, @livingminnaly, @breebranks & @iamlshauntay

ICYMI: We sat down with Chinae Alexander, Minna Lee, Bree Branker, and Latoya Shauntay Snell at Energi to hear their perspectives on the wellness industry. Chinae kicked off the lecture by reading excerpts from an article titled Smash the Wellness Industry. We learned so many things from each woman as they had different backgrounds and points of view. Here are some of our takeaways we wanted to share with you:

  1. Redefine and reclaim your own wellness. What do you want it to be? Chinae defined wellness as “Doing the best that you can for your mind, body and spirit with the resources that you have” and we totally agree!

  2. Wellness is not being obsessed with the scale. Pictures can only tell one side of the story.

  3. You don’t have to have wealth to be well. Things like taking a bath or getting out into nature are easy and inexpensive ways to take time and take care of yourself.

  4. Our stories and where we come from shape our views of wellness. Expand your ideas of wellness beyond your own viewpoint!

  5. Consumers have a lot of power. Encourage and support brands that embrace diversity and question the status quo.

  6. Be proactive to expand beyond your circles. Spend time outside your communities.

The event was complete with dinner from Pret A Manger and samples from top brands like Lily's Sweets, Pacifica Beauty, and Icelandic Provisions. You can view all the goods from the event on our Amazon Shop page.

We’d love to see you at our next event! See what’s coming up next here.
