Hi! I’m Nataya Unique.
Yes, my real name is Unique *smile*
I’m a wellness advocate who believes that in order to be healthy one must consider all of the beautiful pieces of life. You have to care for your whole self…
mind, body, & soul.
I have degrees in both community psychology and clinical mental health counseling. As a traditionally trained counselor and psych researcher, I have a true appreciation for all things wellness related. My training has also shown me that being well is not a destination but rather a journey.
I began The Everyday Unicorn as a way to connect with women similar to myself. Women who are navigating their way through life and trying to stay healthy and whole.
There are many blogs and resources out there who address wellness. Some of which I frequently read and follow..
However, sometimes I find myself overwhelmed with the perfectly curated images they present. It suggests that the path to being healthy and happy is a picture perfect one… which is often not the case. Add that to the lack of safe spaces specifically dedicated to the complexity of being a Black Woman, and I saw a real need to begin The EU.
This blog is named The Everyday Unicorn because it recognizes the fact that magic can be found in common, ordinary things. But, most importantly, I consider myself an Everyday Unicorn because there’s nothing glitzy or glamorous about me, yet, I still live a life full of Unique Beauty.
Thanks for coming and reading my blog! I hope you stay a while.
