Hello, I am Shameka. Welcome to Meek Life, a wellness blog where I discuss all thinks meek and my passion for wellness, music, books, and sleep.
I think meekness is about submitting to life’s lessons and growing from them. So, I am throwing away the narrative that meek is synonymous with weakness. It takes a lot of courage to be uncomfortable and to learn from life’s lessons. I want to help others do the same while trying to achieve and maintain overall wellness. My mantra is “wellness is the key to longevity and success.” I also believe that the core foundations of wellness are mental, physical, and spiritual health. Therefore, I want to share resources that can help you on your wellness journey.
Another essential foundation of wellness is sleep. I believe that sleep is the key to maintaining and achieving wellness. Poor sleep impacts our entire bodies: physically, mentally, and spiritually. As a PhD in Nursing student studying pediatric sleep health disparities, I want to share with you the importance of sleep and how you can improve this daily rejuvenation period.
In order to be well, I think one must have passions and a place for happiness fuel. My happy places are found within the pages of a good book and the subtle notes of a soulful song. I have been an avid reader and music listener since I was a child. As an adult, reading and listening to music have been wellness essentials. I want to share my passion for books and music by posting book reviews of inspirational, spiritual, self-help, and wellness books along with music playlists filled with good vibes. I hope these books and music can help with your wellness journey.
