"Meditation gives me the confidence and strength to put myself first," Union-Wade said. "Sometimes you forget that it takes strength to center yourself, that's not being selfish that's being strong. Because you cannot be strong for everyone else and be of service to everyone else when you have literally left nothing for yourself. So, be strong for yourself, advocate for yourself to center yourself. Because without that, it's hard to be superwoman," she said, according to Forbes.
She Does Juice Cleanses
"The juice cleanse by Squeezed is a Black-owned company and I'm obsessed with their juices," she told Forbes. "There are juices that invigorate you, there are juices that revitalize you. It's a juice for all occasions and I've found them to be wonderful to work with and I provided a little gift card for Squeezed." "Studies have shown that fruit and vegetable juices can boost levels of important vitamins and antioxidants, including folate, vitamin C, vitamin E and beta carotene," says Amanda Beaver, wellness dietitian at Houston Methodist. Just enjoy it in moderation.
She Loves Being Outdoors
"Give me a trail, a park, a walk down the street with the dogs, a breeze, rain," she said. "I'll go hike. I'll get a lawn chair and sit outside my trailer so I'm not trapped inside." "Getting a mental break from work or a stressful situation like managing your life during a pandemic and going outside is important. It allows you to take a breath, relax, and reset with a better frame of mind," says Dr. Christine Ashour, Family Medicine and Primary Care, White Plains Hospital Physician Associates, to Health Matters. "It doesn't matter if you're at a park, in the words, or in your back yard, being in nature can have a calming effect and improve your mental and physical health, especially when its combined with exercise."
She Works Out Early
Said Gabrielle of a photo with her and her husband, NBA star Dwyane Wade, at the gym: "Grind together, shine together. Just gettin started over here #MCM @dwyanewade 💪🏾👫🏾 📸 @cassyathenaphoto @heartandhustlegym @traineratlarge"
She Promotes Self-Esteem
Gabrielle and her daughter Zaya teamed up to empower women not to take social media shaming seriously. "If a post tells you, you're not pretty enough, unfollow. If someone says natural hair is ugly, mute. If you see anything that makes you feel like you're not beautiful, simply remove it from your feed," they said. "I won't follow anyone into thinking I'm not beautiful," Zaya noted. "We don't want you to either."
