Volume One

By Sagashus T. Levingston PhD

ISBN: 978-1-955656-15-3


Covet: The “Disrespectful” Health and Wellness Journal invites you to unapologetically bring sass, attitude, and edge to the world of personal reflection. If the cover and title haven’t yet convinced you that this series is untraditional and meant to expand the face and voice of health and wellness, the content will. It is a robust, guided, three-month journal that invites you to check in with your entire self—self-confidence, self-value, goals, habits, and more. Created for women by women, it considers the seasons you travel through, from menstruation to menopause, for example. We live in a beautiful world riddled with tough realities and unjust systems that impact our bodies and influence what happens in them. Covet recognizes this through its respective monthly themes, gratitude prompts, and “dirty word” quotes. In a society that encourages us to be respectable—even at the cost of our self-esteem, mental health, and physical wellbeing—we’ve carved out a space for you to vent about “daily sh*t.” This journal makes room for all of your mess—for you to show up vulnerable, angry, loud, and imperfect—so that your health and wellness experience can be authentically yours, clearing a path that truly honors you.
