[REPLAY] #41 - Caring For Ourselves When The World Is On Fire
Show Notes

While the context is different, we thought this would be a good time to revisit these self-care practices and conversations about caring for ourselves. And, in an effort to practice what we preach, we took a week off from recording to allow ourselves to rest & regulate. We'll be back with a new episode on November 29th, and we hope this replay will be supportive for you in the meantime.

To say that he past few weeks have been hard would be a huge understatement. So this week's episode is all about how we can care for ourselves when it feels like the world is on fire. Black women & femmes have been teaching for generations about the importance of avoiding burnout when fighting oppressive systems. And, while that is not our lesson to teach, we are talking in this episode about: the importance of caring for ourselves & leaving room for our humanity in times of high stress; why it's okay that we all need different things to meet our needs for self-care & processing; and some practical ways that we can engage in self-care right now.
