When:  Dec 12, 2019 from 11:45 AM to 1:30 PM (PT)

Reflect and Celebrate - “Our work in the community”

Join us as we explore Self-Care, what it is and isn’t. Self-Care is the process of developing a lifestyle which includes actions to improve mental, physical, and emotional health. Self-Care is not a weekend activity—it is a lifestyle of awareness, intentionality and self-preservation.
  • What does Self-Care represent for you?
  • Surface Self-Care Practices and Deep-Rooted Self-Care
  • What does your work role reflect back to you?
  • How do we celebrate ourselves in our work roles?
  • Present moment Self-Care Strategies
