Corey: I am good. I am thankful. I am healthy. Trying to stay sanitized and sane…lol. In addition to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as a Black man, I have to navigate systemic racism and the racial injustices that have been plaguing Black lives for far too long, most recently with the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. These tragedies have lit a fire under me.
“Mental Health Hour,” is the first activity I partake in every morning when I wake up. It’s simple I wake up, meditate, pray, write in my journal and then read a book. This is done before I even touch my phone, work out, check emails or get connected to the world. I feel I have to connect to myself first before I get connected to the world. Thus “Mental Health Hour” has become very important to my daily routine.
