Self-Care for Journalists: Unplugging, Mental Health, Meditation and Balance

Few professions are in such need of self-care as journalism, a snake pit of digital over-stimulation, vicarious trauma and financial insecurity. Attend this training and learn how to unplug, check-in, find personal and professional balance and embrace meditation and mindfulness.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists experiencing burnout, stress, guilt and poor mental health
  • Leaders who would like to provide better health and wellness
  • Anyone seeking tips and tricks for surviving a stressful workplace
