Beth Kanter and I gave our first joint presentation on some of the content we’ve been compiling and writing for our new book together, The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: 10 Strategics for Impact Without Burnout. Our assignment was to come up with 10 concrete things anyone could start doing today to bring more awareness to one’s health and wellbeing and apply self-care techniques to different aspects of one’s life.
We framed the areas of our lives where we need to pay attention and practice self-care as the 5 Spheres of Happy Healthy. As human beings, we are affected by and influenced by our relationships, both internal and external. How we interact with ourselves, with others and with our surroundings and other elements has a direct impact on our wellbeing.
These are the 5 Spheres of Happy Healthy we shared:
And these are The 10 Practices we discussed:
- Create A Self Care Bill of Rights
- Understand and Apply Habit Change Frameworks
- Get Enough Sleep
- Get Moving
- Embrace Mindfulness
- Manage Your Energy and Attention
- Integrate Tech Wellness
- Stop Procrastination
- Set Limits
