Mental health has been a constant trending topic during the pandemic, and now Omarion is offering his keys to wellness in his new book.
The former B2K lead singer published Unbothered: The Power of Choosing Joy, on September 13. This is his second book, following O in 2005.
“Being unbothered is about emotional intelligence, unbothered is giving yourself space to create the life that you want instead of reacting to life,” the “Post to Be” singer tells Rolling Out. “Being thoughtless, responding to life, and being thoughtful. That’s what being unbothered is all about. I have journal prompts, mantras, yantras, and affirmations. This book is what I would call the power for people that want to create wellness in their life.”
In Unbothered, Omarion shows how he has centered his life around holistic wellness, detailing the practices he uses including breathing exercises, meditation, yoga, dancing, and ancient mantras.
Omarion says his book provides a guide on how to improve mental health.
“This is a full circle moment for me because, through all of the ups and downs as artists, you have to ask yourself, ‘Why am I going through this?’ For it to manifest into a book and a tool that not only I use, but that can be useful to someone else is an amazing feeling,” he continues.
After over 20 years as a recording artist, Omarion says the book is one of the most intense projects of his career.
“It took me a year and a half to write this book, so this is the densest work that I’ve ever done,“ the BET and Soul Train Music award winner says. “So to be able to inspire, which is the highest human act, feels good.”
