Self-Care

How can we unleash the joy, purpose, and strength inside each of us? How do we care for ourselves so we can care for the world?

As a community of changemakers, we are doing tough work. Many of us face trauma in our lives and in our activism. How do we keep from becoming overwhelmed?

Do you have a story about a moment you realized the need for self-care? Have you faced burnout or exhaustion? Tell us about what you were up against, and how you cared for yourself.

We want to hear what self-care looks like in your life. Do you have a routine? What are the things that help sustain your mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing?

We are also looking for stories about why self-care isn’t always easy for us to prioritize. What challenges prevent us from caring for ourselves? Why is it so hard to even talk about our stress and fears sometimes? And how can we celebrate the importance of taking time to recharge?

Let’s bring our self-care stories and solutions together from all over the world.

THIS CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS CLOSES ON 9March, 2017 AT 11:59 PM PST.
