Self Care in a Time of Chaos with Sacil Armstrong and Karen Fleshman

Self-care isn’t all bubble baths and vacations. It’s about doing what you need to be healthy – emotionally, spiritually, physically, mentally, financially, within your relationships, community, and environment.

Self-care is imperative in the midst of the grief and stress caused by coronavirus, white supremacy, and economic anxiety. Yet we may feel guilty about prioritizing ourselves when others are suffering so much. How can we set boundaries, practice self care and social isolation, and support each other and our communities to heal?

This conversation was recorded on May 21, 2020.

Sacil Armstrong leads anti racism and social justice training, focusing on facts and integrating self-care so that we all actively listen with fewer emotional distractions. This is how we come together and create the world we want.
