Self Care in Turbulent Times
Workshop with Megan Taylor, LICSW
Wednesday November 7 | 6:30 PM
Our Self Care series is FREE and open to all!
In a world of constant change and uncertainty, many of us have felt more anxious and insecure than ever before. There is an increased sense of helplessness existing among us as we try to make sense of the turmoil our country is experiencing. More people feel overwhelmed and disconnected from what brings them joy and serenity.
Engaging in self-care practices can help us to become more resilient in times of stress and insecurity. By taking care of yourself you can enhance your health and remain strong during challenging times. Self-care practices help to reduce stress and promote our overall well-being. We are all more productive and able to help others when we have prioritized our own care. In this workshop, led by Megan Taylor, LICSW, you will learn self-care practices that you can implement in your daily life.
