School Counselor Summer Self Care Challenge

We teach it. We preach it. But do we practice it?
All mental health professionals know the importance of self care, so why do we so often find ourselves burned out and in need of serious rejuvenation? We care, we give, we advocate, we teach, we listen. We need to take care of ourselves too.

I put together this School Counselor Summer Self Care Challenge in hopes that we can spend some time over the summer caring for ourselves. When the phone isn’t ringing and the walkie talkie isn’t buzzing, we can take time to truly remember how much self care refreshes our minds, our bodies, and our abilities to keep up with the work flow. My hope is that the daily practice of self care during the summer will carry over once school begins in August or September.

Self care is personal, so if the items on this list just don’t do it for you, pick another activity you enjoy. Just do something for you. These are simply suggestions to get you started on the right foot for a summer full of relaxation, joy, and self love.

  1. Awesome! Thank you for sharing this! It will force me to take some time out for just me! FYI…. I was at the Kansas School Counseling Conference a couple of weeks ago and some of the presenters were complimenting your work on teachers pay teachers!

  2. Yay I'm so glad you'll be joining me this summer 🙂 I'm the world's worst at practicing what I preach when it comes to self care, so I figured if I need it, others probably do too. Also, you totally made my day by sharing about your conference!!
