Self care is important for everyone - we all need to look after our mind as much as we need to look after our body. How do you figure out what self care means for you? How do you build up self care routines and strategies for both long term self care and in the moment use?
I've spent a lot of time building and iterating on my own self care backpack and I'd like to share some of the techniques and tools I use to help me figure out what I need to do to keep my mental health on an even keel. I'll be doing a talk (modified to reflect the current situation), with tips about adjusting your routine as needed, and I'll also be sharing resources and where to find help.
