This summer, Tika Sumpter wants you to rest and relax.
While working with the American Heart Association, the Have and the Have Not‘s star is encouraging women to manage chronic stress and be aware of the effects it could have on your heart health.
“This topic is important to me because women struggle to prioritize their own mental wellbeing when there’s always so much going on—from family, work, health issues, finances—it is easy to put ourselves last on the to-do list,” Tika exclusively shared with E! News. “I want to encourage women to carve out ‘me time’ and manage their stress by going for a walk, meditating, journaling or whatever makes you feel gratitude and joy.”
She’s also sharing the must-have products she always carries in her Burberry backpack. From snacks and water bottles to hand sanitizer and hand cream, see what Tika loves below.
S’well Stainless Steel Water Bottle
“I try to reduce my plastic use for the environment and the S’well bottles are a great alternative with some really cute colors and patterns,” Tika said when highlighting a water bottle with more than 9,500 5-star reviews on Amazon.
YUNI Beauty Essential Oil Fragrance Roll On
“When I’m traveling, it’s especially helpful for a quick moment of relief,” Tika said when recommending YUNI Beauty’s blend of powerful essential oils. “Also being a mom, I sometimes need time to myself and this essence really helps me get into a calm place and relax when I am alone.”
