What is self-care?
Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept in theory, it’s something we very often overlook. Good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also key to a good relationship with oneself and others.
Self-care isn’t a selfish act either. It is not only about considering our needs; it is rather about knowing what we need to do in order to take care of ourselves, being subsequently, able to take care of others as well. That is, if I don’t take enough care of myself, I won’t be in the place to give to my loved ones either.
Esther has years of experience in practicing self-care and in teaching self-care to others. Whether you are a professional such a first responder (law enforcement, fire fighter, nurse, physician, etc.), an advocate, social worker, attorney, or a busy mom taking care of your family, it is important to practice self-care.
Esther does group trainings and workshops where she provides tools and techniques that will help you to identify and overcome burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma.
