Recirculating my piece on self-care and we-care for my Asian siblings hurting from the escalating Anti-Asian racism and violence. Love to you all. #StopAsianHate…
Here is a Chinese translation of my article on self-care in the midst of anti-Asian racism. #StopAsianHate…
Self-care tips in the midst of anti-Asian racism:
1) Identify habits that make you feel safe, and do them at least weekly if possible. I find hiking and clearing my mind in nature a soothing practice and try to do this at least four times a week.

Love this! Inclusive hiking groups in Southern California and around the nation want to remove barriers in experiencing a connection with nature.…
I love hiking but it is definitely not an inclusive activity. On a recent hike at Temescal Canyon, a white woman walked past me & said to her companions, “Whenever I see Asians...” and though I didn’t hear the rest, her comment put a damper on my birthday hike. 🥲
And since the pandemic, I always wear masks on hikes when a lot of folks won’t. I have regularly experienced people grabbing their kids and walking the other way upon seeing me.
