Taking care of self is critical in DEI work. In this episode, Sacha chats with therapist Rufus Spann. They discuss the importance of self-care and wellness as practitioners continue to juggle demanding expectations.
“Are you continuing patterns that keep you in a perpetual state where it’s not best for your health and wellness?”
Have you thought about the generational stress on the heart when we live by the mantra “You have to work twice as hard” and how we unlearn that mentality?
What have you filled your cup with today? I hope it’s something that will soothe your soul because this conversation with Dr. Rufus Spann does just that.
In this episode we discuss –
- the challenges of holding space for others and ourselves during these times
- the impact of racial battle fatigue on the body
- how we can use different tools and leverage community to approach DEI issues differently
He also provides a few tips on how we can use aftercare before we get to the point of needing self-care.
