6:00-7:00 PM | The Happy Healthy Nonprofit Professional: Strategies for Impact without Burnout
--Workshop led by Beth Kanter
The passion that nonprofit professionals feel for their work is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, that fervor helps them keep going in the face of difficult challenges, especially in the early stages of their careers.
On the other hand, they can be so driven they don’t stop to refuel or smell the proverbial roses or even notice they are experiencing symptoms of burnout. This interactive workshop is based on Beth Kanter's new book, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout (http://bit.ly/happyhealthynpbook)
- Take a self-assessment to determine burnout symptoms and opportunities to create self-care habits
- Discuss and share tips and methods for weaving self-care activities into your day and creating a self-care plan for resilience
- Learn some simple ways to bring a culture of wellbeing into your nonprofit workplace
7:10-8:00 PM | Mindfulness & Movement
-- activity led by Hedy Andersson
Do you sometimes feel a little stressed or feel a nagging tension in your neck and shoulders? Or maybe you’re well on your way to full-on burnout, pouring yourself into your job because you know you're having a positive impact, but ignoring the impact it's having on you mentally and physically? Either way, taking the time to care for your health and well-being are essential to your sustainability in your professional as well as personal life.
Join us for an evening of self-care through mindfulness and gentle movement that will leave you feeling de-stressed and refreshed! And learn strategies and tips for incorporating self-care into your workday and everyday life, enabling you to feel relaxed and focused throughout your days, even strengthening neurological pathways for increased stress resilience.
Special thanks to Sports Basement Berkeley for providing the space and Kaiser Permanente for the giveaways!
