In our busy world of buzzing phones, endless business meetings and too many shows to watch on Netflix, it can be hard to take the time to think about yourself. No, not in the "how many likes did my picture get on Instagram?" kind of way or the "I need that new luggage set I saw on Facebook" kind of way, but in the "what does my body and mind need today?" kind of way.
That's why Jill L. Ferguson started her Fairygodboss group, Women's Wellness: to give women a space to empower each other in their wellness journeys, to share self-care tips and to talk about the health topics they really care about, all from the comfort of their couch. There have been discussions on meal subscriptions, politics-induced stress and finding your inner power even when you're feeling down. Need a new face mask or a better idea of how to meditate with kids? You can join for free with your Fairygodboss account. Don't have an account?
