The Lab: Support and self-care
Being tired all the time, but not sleeping well. Unexplained headaches. Finding yourself forgetting things… While these could be linked to getting older (or parenting, as I’m finding out), it’s also possible that they are signs that your body is telling you that you’re stressed and you need to pay attention. Our work is often underpaid and undervalued with high amounts of stress, especially when working with young people with chaotic lives.
