Be the reason someone feels seen, heard and supported

What we’re looking at this week...

You can have an impact on someone’s day without even knowing it.

This quote, from Cleo Wade, reminds us that the impact we make can be positive or negative. Your words and actions can encourage, inspire, and build up other people, or they can do the opposite.

How will you use your power today?

What we're reading this week…

In his podcast, Dr. Huberman spoke about an inability to apply self-care. What does that really look like, and can social media make it worse?

Writing in the Sunday Independent, an Irish newspaper, Sophie White discusses her personal experiences with depression and self-care. She reinforces the idea that suggesting healthy activities, such as yoga, to someone who is unwell is often ineffective despite being well-intentioned.
