Alexis Ren has been a staple on social media long before being an influencer was a mainstream job. The model, actress and travel enthusiast grew her personal brand through sharing snippets of her exciting life and trips, and, of course, posting beautiful and trending fashion, bikini and lifestyle content.

But, the 27-year-old found her true passion in creating a wholesome, close-knit virtual platform for women, the We Are Warriors wellness community.

Today, the SI Swimsuit model, who starred in the 2018 issue, launched the We Are Warriors journal, a free-form, interactive notebook filled with prompts, advice and resources to help women connect with themselves and indulge in written therapy.

“‘Becoming a warrior’ journal out now. Years of workshops from @wearewarriors compiled into one beautiful journal. This is for all the warriors in my life—and for the greatest warrior I’ve ever known, my mama. Link in bio,” the Southern California native captioned an Instagram post, promoting and announcing the journal, shared with her 17.9 million followers.

The message was accompanied by a moving, aesthetic video of Ren and cofounder Allie Michelle.

“While the world will overload you with answers, this journal helps you explore honest questions.To know yourself is to be free. We gathered three years of workshops from our wellness community to support you in deepening your relationship with yourself. We have found that each prompt has greatly helped us become aware of our patterns and allows us to practice forming new ones. As warriors, we believe in strengthening all areas of life. Relationships, finances, wellness, creativity. This journal pulls from out community’s most transformational classes,” the women said in a voiceover.

“According to neuroscience, about 95% of our decisions come form our subconscious mind. This is why we created this journal, so we can explore our subconscious and become more aware of the way we show up in the world. It’s not about becoming a new you, but learning to understand and embrace who you already are. Compassion is the one thing this world needs so much more of, and that begins with ourselves. To be a warrior in your own life is to brave on your journey of self-discovery. This journal offers a supportive space for you to process your emotions, find clarity on your path forward and take steps toward a life you truly love.”

The journal retails for $30. Get your copy
