We are all included in the greater good. Your health and wellness matters.
"Self-Care"...it's a nice idea, isn't it? Doesn't it seem like the people who need it the most are the people who have the least amount of time and resources to devote to it? Of course we all need to take care of ourselves, but how do we prioritize our well-being over the people who rely on us for their wellness - our clients, our staff, our families? If you are part of the nonprofit world and on this page, it is likely you are a "helper"
Change is something that occurs, while transition is something that we actively guide. There are many ways to think about events and moments in our lives: seasons, cycles, beginnings and endings, etc. Here, in the Village, we have come to appreciate the idea of "liminal spaces".
Mind - Body - Work Balance
Sometimes, our bodies communicate our emotional and physical state before our brains do, but we don’t really live in a society that encourages a stronger mind-body connection, and we don’t usually develop these self-awareness skills as we grow into adulthood. Take breathing, for example. We master breathing right at birth because we can not survive without each inhale and exhale. Because it is instinctual and ingrained in our survival, we rarely consider ways to maximize its benefits in our daily lives.
