Social justice activists, social workers, community organizers and others face distinctive hurdles in practicing self-care, such as managing a continuous state of urgency, varying day-to-day schedules and ever-evolving communities and clients.

Passion holds many of us in an emotional in-between place. Sandwiched between working for change and holding hope for that change to occur. This in-between place is where we must also attend to ourselves.

Self-care generates our capacity to grow roots and draw up nourishment for the journey. Self-care means being aware of ourselves, where we are rooted, aware of what is around us, and evolving from the lessons we learn in order to survive and thrive.
