I had the pleasure of being interviewed for the ‘Dignity Together Against Workplace Bullying’ group. This is an organization working hard on legislative change, but it is also a group focused on support, wellness, and Self-Care. Deb Falzoi is doing an amazing job. Here is where you can find her and her group. http://bit.ly/2F2lWIk DignityTogether.org
Here is the interview where she asked me to
- define Self-Care
- talk about why Self-Care is important
- explore myths about Self-Care
- identify mistakes people make when it comes to Self-Care
She also asks me why Self-Care is especially important for people who are being bullied in the workplace.
Consider my answer to apply to so many of us. Are you in any kind of relationship where you feel you are giving your power away? This might be to a colleague, a supervisor, a spouse, a friend, or even a parent. Are you a giver? Do you feel that you are never a priority because you are giving so much of yourself to others? My answer to her question applies to all of these scenarios where we might not be putting ourselves first.
To your Self-Care!
