A SELF-CARE STORY WITH WELLNESS ADVOCATE Chrissy Rutherford Between cofounding 2BG (a diversity and inclusion consulting agency) and launching her own newsletter, Chrissy shares her everyday essentials (and little indulgences) for keeping cool, calm and collected.
“I love to give myself flowers and support my local bodegas.”
4 ways she’s practicing self-care right now1. “Consistently investing in my well-being. Therapy is a big part of this, but I’ve also developed my own rituals, from meditating and journaling to listening to music and reading.”2. “Moving back in with my parents. It’s really nice to be in nature and slow down the pace of my days—plus they’re amazing cooks, so I get to eat Jamaican food all the time.”3. “Launching my newsletter FWD JOY, which is dedicated to self-discovery, self-care and finding joy.”4. “Embracing the sweatpants life—but it always has to be a matching set, so I still look put together.”
