About the Workshop

Have you been so busy taking care of others that you have forgotten to take care of yourself? Putting yourself first may seem like a selfish concept; however, we must save ourselves before we can save anyone else.

When we continuously give to others without replenishing ourselves we can become overwhelmed, easily angered, and stressed out. Although, “self-care” may seem difficult to squeeze into a busy schedule, it is much easier than you think and so very rewarding.

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn to:
• Identify emotional and physical stress related symptoms
• Effectively manage stress and anxiety/
• Develop a self-care routine
• Avoid “burn out”
