Creating Your Self-Care Plan
You hear this all the time: When you care for another, you have to take care of yourself. The problem is that no one ever tells you exactly how to do this. How in the world, when your world is full of too much to do with too few hands and too little time, do you take care of yourself? You just need a plan. Just like your caree has a plan of care, so do you. Every Thursday, you can stop by to receive your care plan which helps you tap into and replenish your well. In this webinar, we’ll walk you through your care plan and offer suggestions so you can make the best use of your plan. Listen to the webinar here.
