Strengthen your resilience with essential self-care tools

After months of various levels of “shelter at home,” we are all facing emotional and physical fatigue as COVID numbers continue to rise.

We feel we need to rest. To breathe. To tell ourselves that we’ll take time out for when we have more time. Except we haven’t done so, and now we feel burned out. We miss our routine, family, and friends.

Recharging and renewal are things we have an intention to “get to” or a “nice to have,” but to take the time to implement can feel daunting.

But it is more important now than ever to tend to our self-care and create a plan for managing our health and well-being. No matter what is happening on the outside, we have a choice in how we want to feel, think, and show up for ourselves and those we love.

Let us help you create a plan to do more than just survive. Given stress is accumulative, give yourself this gift of calm and peace.

In this community workshop, you will learn three levels of essential self-care to boost your overall resilience and well-being this holiday season – so you can come away with bite-sized, practical, science-based tools for a strong start to 2021.
