Genucel by Chamonix is a non-profit organization that helps women and children with low self-esteem as a result of suffering abuse. They are helping Women Aware in all ways to fighting lowered self-esteem among women and children. Women Aware is a non-profit organization based in Middlesex, New Jersey. In the United States, New Jersey is one of the counties that experience high rates of domestic violence. Here, domestic violence occurs in almost every 7 minutes. This leads to women and children suffering both physical and emotional abuse at a higher rate than men. A more women-specific organization is needed to help the victims.
Therefore, women need a significant care for domestic violence. This is where Women Aware comes in handy, providing food, shelter and recovery programs for women from New Jersey and their families. The organization has been functional since 1981.
After experiencing any kind of abuse, one starts experiencing low self-esteem, self-worth and even self-harm, which can be physical and emotional. The best way to overcoming post-abuse symptoms is finding self-care methods that will help bring back one’s personal worth. Mental health professionals recommend different ways for best physical and emotional health after abuse. Among them includes self-affirmations such as reminding themselves that they are beautiful, loved and they can do it, be it in their career or life in general. Studies have shown that self-affirmations don’t work at first, but after continued affirmations, the victims start changing their outlook on themselves.
Sometimes, one can channel the negative energy in them into something creative like sports, arts or one’s hobbies. This can be one good self-care routine that will help fight physical and emotional trauma. Also, keeping the body healthy through personal hygiene and exercises can help increase the victim’s self-worth. These exercises include walking, mostly recommended by professionals because it eases the symptoms of chronic mental illness. Abuse survivors also need to refocus on their self through positive thinking. This gives them a mentality that their abusers have created an opportunity for them to re-create themselves, thus conquering the negative energy that would have affected them.
Genucel is now providing support to women by giving the Women Aware organization beauty bags which incorporates toiletries and Genucel products. These bags consist of anti-aging products, which reduce the appearance of wrinkles as a result of aging. Abuse has a lot of effects on one’s skin and age. Mental abuse causes sleeplessness and depression. This results in increased wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. The Genucel products help in fighting all these. They help erase physical reminders of their painful past experiences thus making women feel confident thus improving their self-esteem.
Together with Women Aware, Genucel are doing their best to make sure all women suffering from domestic abuse access the best care. Learn more about Genucel on LinkedIn.
