The content covered through our services can elicit strong emotions for participants. We acknowledge that everyone reacts differently - at different times, in their own way, and for whatever length of time they need to.
Self-care is important in this process so that we can recharge, prevent burnout, and feel healthy. When we look to the medicine wheel, it is the things you do to help yourself physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We have listed a few common examples below on what might work for you:
- Go for a walk
- Do a smudge
- Read a good book
- Go get a pedicure
- Get out on the land
- Practice traditional arts like beading, carving, painting, dancing, and singing
- Eat healthy foods and drink water
- Get a good nights sleep
- Find a form of exercise you like (ex: running, basketball, canoeing)
- Have a soothing bath
- Talk to a trusted friend or family member
- Ask for help
- Seek counselling
If you have any suggestions we should add to our list, please let us know.
