How to Cultivate Appreciation and Self-Care in Chaos
The teams at Banzai, livingHR, and Loop & Tie cultivated an hour of diligent self-care, and crucial discussion.
In times of extreme stress and chaos, it can feel unnatural and selfish to pause to take care of ourselves. And yet we know that without diligent care of ourselves, our ability to support the world around us is at risk.
In today’s world, self-care might look more like defining boundaries and separating from the 24-hours news cycle, than sheet masks and bubble baths. Whatever it looks like for you, you’re invited to this experience.
The teams at Banzai, livingHR, and Loop & Tie cultivated an hour of diligent self-care, and crucial discussion. In this session, we had conversations about practicing self-care in the workday, joined in a guided meditation, and hosted an AMA with the leading experts in self-care and wellness, BetterHelp, and Marvelus.
Those who attended live received a special gift from Loop & Tie.
