You Don’t Have to Earn Rest!



Capitalism has us tying our worth to our work.
Capitalism has convinced us that we have to earn rest.
Capitalism has convinced us that loyalty to an employer over our own needs is being a good employee with a strong work ethic.
I am declining the invitation to join team no sleep.
No, I will not hustle harder.
I do not accept that professional burnout and compassion fatigue are social work rites of passage.
I refuse to deplete myself for a paycheck ever again.
I am most creative and productive when I have had time to unwind and rejuvenate – and so are YOU!
REMINDER: You deserve to engage in quality self-care – always, not just in September.
Self-care is not self-indulgent, it is essential.
Self-care is not a reward or a treat, it is a lifestyle you are entitled to.
Self-care is more than occasional pleasures like massages and pedicures. Self-care includes strong boundaries, distancing yourself from toxicity, and giving your mind and body the relaxation and recreation it requires.

It’s time for the soft life! Set aside some time and invest in yourself!
