Recorded On: 01/16/2020

Do you feel "stressed-out" on a daily basis? 

Do you worry that you aren't doing enough for your family when you are at work, or enough for your employer when you are at home? 

Have you set your own self-care regimen aside to attend to the needs of your family and employer? 

Do you even really know what self-care is?

Self care, in essence, is the mindful taking of time to pay attention to you, not in a narcissistic way, but in a way that ensures that you are being cared for by you. 
Perhaps the most overarching aspect of self-care, encompassing both professional and personal levels, revolves around how well we can balance our work and personal lives. When we are in a state of "work–life balance", we don't feel torn between time allocated for work and other aspects of life, include personal interests, family and social or leisure activities. 

Join a panel of three women, Jennie, Ari, and Chiara, who have been part of I&R for years as they share what they have experienced (and are still experiencing) as they journey toward work-life balance.

After this webinar attendees will be able to:

Recognize the symptoms of burnout in themselves 
Express what work-life balance would best look like in their own lives
From listening to others experiences, be able to identify what self care approaches might work in their own lives to achieve the desired work-life balance
