Getting to the Root of Self-Care
Upside down. For many of us, the world is upside down now, and we don’t know how or when it will feel right-side up again. As we grapple with the challenges of maintaining health and safety, business continuity, and jobs, it’s easy to forget that engaging your people starts with… people. Humans – who have emotions and needs and aren’t just a faceless workforce.
These humans can’t stay engaged if they can’t care for their own basic needs – think Maslow’s hierarchy. Basic survival, safety, and a sense of belonging are crucial for your people to stay engaged with your organization’s critical work.
We’ve developed a little something to help with that. Borrowing on our own experience with change and what motivates people, coupled with the creativity of our team, here are:
- Some self-care tips you can send to your employees
- A series of coloring sheets they can print for their kids
These short infographics offer five installments of essential tips for self-care support: emotional, physical, relational, work-related, and mental. The coloring sheets build on each other to create one story, so your kids can enjoy themselves too.
If we’re going to turn the world right-side up (maybe even making it better than ever in the process), it will take all of us. But first, we have to make it through!
