Workshop on Looking After Ourselves

Mon, 10/12/2018



Organised by The Eden Project

Whether we are undertaking community events, activism, business or any other project, looking after ourselves often takes a backseat. But none of us are immune to burning out. Join this practical session to discuss the symptoms and risks of burnout, and use tips and tools to help build resilience into our daily (and busy!) lives, as well as how we can all support each other towards well-being. Please feel free to get into the wintry spirit and join with a mulled wine and mince pie!
