Keynote-Modeling Self-Care

In theory, most people agree self-care is vital to warding off burnout. So why is it so hard? Because self-care involves setting boundaries, carving time out for yourself, and saying no to others. It has to do with self-worth and that gets misinterpreted as being "selfish." It's also hard if you've never seen an example of how to do it well. To be the best leader, teacher, educator and servant, it's imperative that you also practice and model self-care.
