Self Care in the Time of a Global Pandemic (Pre-Recorded Video – Video link to be provided on November 19. Ensure to register to receive link via email)
Presented By: Brenda Adams
The COVID-19 pandemic hit a lot of us really hard. Adjusting to the constant changes that are occurring in our work and in our personal lives is challenging. Our emotional and mental buckets are emptying and it can be hard to figure out how to refill them. When it comes to self-care, you likely fall into one of two camps, 1) you had a self-care routine before COVID that worked great but now you are struggling to stick with it or 2) you didn’t have a self-care routine before COVID and you recognize that you need to create one. In this session you will learn strategies to create a self-care routine that fits your life now and that you can adapt as things change (as we know they do). Once you have gone through this workshop you’ll have resources and information you can also share with colleagues and staff who might be struggling with self-care.
