To live a holistically healthy life, self-care is necessary. Since we are all different and have different needs, it’s important to reflect on what self-care looks like and feels like for you. This workshop explores the topic of self-care, and its importance to our health and wellness. We also discuss some ideas for figuring out what self-care practices work best for you as well as resources across campus that can support your self-care.
After viewing this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Define self-care - what it is and what it is not
- Explore what self-care means to you
- Understand the resources available and how they can support self-care and multidimensional wellness
