What you need to know, currently.
In a personal essay, Currently’s managing editor Zaria Howell writes about how the Earth and our own healing are intrinsically connected. Zaria is an environmental journalist— but focused on wellness and mental health— she is also pursuing a Masters in Social Work at Columbia University.
In the summer of 2021 Zaria spent two months living and working on a farm, the experience changed how she views taking care of her own body and mind.
She writes, “And so, perhaps now more than ever, is time for us, as a collective, to decide what environmental consciousness means and looks like to us, for it’s clear we’ve become disconnected from the life force energy that binds us to our environment.”
