If you’ve flown, you’ve heard a flight attendant caution us that if we need to help others, we need to put our own mask on first. But for those of us in the nonprofit sector, it can be hard to put ourselves first. The needs of our clients are pressing. Our work is demanding. There’s more needed than we alone can provide and there aren’t enough resources to do our work. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. But the cost of sacrificing ourselves to the point of burnout is too high. You are worth caring for! Come learn about 16 rejuvenating practices that are free, quick, easy, and portable. In this workshop we’ll share and practice simple ways to care for yourself. You’ll leave with a mini-action plan.
