The multidisciplinary staff working in the provider fields face daily stressors in providing the quality of services they are dedicated to. Dealing with staff shortages, lack of needed resources, being the catalyst for motivation and change can take a toll.

Planning for wellness and utilizing lessons learned from our time with ourselves in a pandemic likely brought about some ideas where changes can be made. In order to capitalize on those lessons we want to spend some time honoring what we need, want, and can create coming out of an intense time of forced reflection. In order to do what we came into this field to do. We need to honor ourselves, the work, the individuals we interact with, and the hope we have to make an impact;  while balancing the life we desire and are working so hard to have! 

Let's have some fun, build wellness into our lives so we can offer all that we can, in all that we do.
