Join us for the Science of Self-Care
The pandemic has made everyone tired. Many of us are stretched thin caring for families, children, our jobs, etc. It’s time to shift the focus back to ourselves, and not just others. On Thursday, August 26th, join us for a special conversation and online workshop with the Self Care Agency that dives deep into the science of self-care.
Our self-care virtual workshop will begin with a guided meditation session, followed by a chat with experts in self-care and science. Then we’ll have structured time to develop a Strategic Self Care Plan and a tool kit for your personal wellness journey. By the end, we’ll have answers to the following questions:
- What happens in the brain when stress is introduced?
- How does your brain respond when you address a need and take care of yourself?
- What happens when you ignore taking care of yourself for a long period of time?
- What strategies can you use to address your needs and the people you care about?
We look forward to seeing you online on Thursday, August 26 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. With your $10 ticket, you will get access to the online event and guided help to create your own self-care plan, based on science. This event is designed for ages 18+. To register on the day of the event, email [email protected]
