Taking care of yourself allows you to enjoy time with others while also sustaining yourself. Self-care is not selfish. It is being intentional in your day to reflect, nurture your body, remember your heart, grieve your sorrows, and attend to your daily needs.
Self-care is an invaluable, but often overlooked, part of the work we do in our communities. This workshop is designed for young people who want to develop personal strategies for taking care of themselves and their peers when running projects in their communities. Burning out; carrying and not addressing trauma; allowing our work lives to bleed over into our personal – too many of us accept these as inevitable. In this interactive session, we will challenge these notions by exploring better ways we can take care of ourselves (and in doing so, be able to best support our communities). Facilitators will share stories, tips, and both personal and general interactive strategies regarding how we can best do this important work.
