5. Nutrition: Feeding the Body and the Soul
Margery and Chanelle spill the tea (literally) on how they've learned to nurture mental and physical wellness.

One of the best ways to care for our mental wellbeing is to care for our physical bodies. Community Manager Margery Hannah and mentee alum Chanelle Ferguson dive into the ways that their upbringing in their particular communities has influenced their relationship to physical health, and how care for the body is intimately tied to care for the soul. This episode covers tea as a favored Caribbean remedy, how to handle stress in the body, and how food deserts are affecting communities of color.


Featured Poem: Soul Food by Kamari Bright
Featured Prompt by Mentee Alum Chanelle Ferguson:
Write a letter from your body to you answering the question, "How has your body taken care of you?"
