Nezariel Scott is part of Knix's Social Team. If you've DM'd with us on Instagram or Twitter, you're probably friends with her already! When she's not chatting with the Knix community, you can find her celebrating self-care by binge-watching BTS videos. You can also catch more of her writing on FLARE and ELLE.

Do you know what the most beautiful thing about practicing self-care is? That it’s unique and nurturing to each one of us in our own way. Not only does self-care make us feel better— it shapes the person we are and the energy we carry into our day-to-day lives. That’s why I always invest at least twenty minutes of my day spending time doing something I love. 

In honour of Black History Month, I asked friends who also identify as Black to share their personal self-care methods they routinely practice to reconnect with themselves.  

There’s no doubt 2020 was a hard year for our community, so now more than ever, it’s important we take the time to rest and refuel when so many of us have been struggling emotionally. 

Because for anyone reading this who identifies as BIPOC— it’s okay to care and love yourself unconditionally. We all deserve wellness, too.

Say hi to Nez and our Social Team over on @Knixwear, and let us know your favorite ways to practice self-care.
