Oh, hey. Behind the scenes, we’re in the midst of pulling together this entire self-care check-in situation. We’re building a database of resources to help you facilitate wellness at home, school and work. We’re also working with community partners to create Self-Care Check-In™ Experiences in unexpected places.
We’re excited. We look forward to involving you in this initiative and to lead with a new posture that highlights expressions of compassion and love for ourselves and for our communities.
— Team GetSomeJoy.
Stories prompt reflection of our individual identities and thrust us unto foreign landscapes of new worlds and perspectives.
Let’s traverse these new worlds together, exchanging more of our authentic stories with the intention of broadening our understanding of one another, and becoming dangerously unselfish within our beloved communities.
SELFCARECHECKIN.COM is a safe and secure place to tell it like it is, and to inspire your creativity.
More to come…
