It’s easy to burn out in the nonprofit sector. To accomplish our missions, we need to care a lot about people and the world itself. We need to be passionate about our causes in order to get up every morning and do a job that we may not be paid well for but gives us meaning. That caring and passion requires energy.
But sometimes we run out of energy because we fail to look after ourselves first. We work long hours, don’t take our holidays or develop habits that give us comfort but may not be healthy. And, this is not just happening for individuals. We have created a culture of personal and employee neglect in the sector that is now the new ‘normal’. We are expected to give more than we have, do more than we are paid for and care more for others than we do for ourselves.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. And in fact, we can’t sustain it. As a sector, we cannot continually run on empty and still have the energy to create social change.
This session will focus on individual and organizational self care in the nonprofit sector. It will include tips and tricks for building a healthier organization and investing time and effort in a healthier YOU.
