Managing Stress Through Self Care
Topic:
Learn how taking care of yourself first can improve your personal wellbeing, as the wellbeing of those youíre a role model for.
Summary:
The life of a school employee can be compared to running a marathonóbut at a sprinter's pace! We know it can be crazy at times and that's why we talk about how to set up a self-care plan that will help you dial down the craziness, and dial up your happiness. Learn how taking care of yourself first can improve your personal wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of those youíre a role model for. Our Self-Care Workshop is tailored to the unique environment of any school employee and dives into how and why it is important to take care of ourselves first. The session is a mixture of valuable self-care evidence based information and skills. Participants will have the opportunity to brainstorm and think on what self-care means to them as well as take advantage of some protected time to sit back and create a self-care plan and an emergency self-care plan. Our Workplace Wellness Liaison will be there to guide and support the process and tell a few jokes to keep spirits high.
