Plan to spend 1 hour with others across the state for a COVID-19 Self-Care Session! All sessions are virtual, so no need to schedule travel time.  This month we will have Dr. Keely Rees help us to Center Yourself During Uncertain Times. There will also be time to connect with other WPHA members, ask questions, and share thoughts and ideas. 

Centering Yourself During Uncertain Times
This hour together will provide you with a simple tool that can allow your mind & body the deep restoration it needs during stressful days on the computer, juggling work, and family. Centering is at the core of all the Contemplative Practices. I will introduce the Contemplative Tree of Practices and demonstrate a Body Scan tool that you can use at work, home, or in between. We all need simple practices that have lasting effects during times of uncertainty. Giving yourself permission to pause, allows for great self-empathy & compassion. This has a lasting effect on those around you as well. Our homes, workplaces, and communities are in greater need of compassion and it can start with you.
