At In Great Company, we believe in uplifting each other, and sharing opportunities so that each of our volunteers have the chance to gain new skills and life experiences –thereby helping those they assist.
We have come across some wonderful online self-care training which we think would offer you a wonderful opportunity to think about yourself and fill up your own tanks with some all-important self-love.
‘7 Days of Self-Care’ is all about taking care of YOU, and the course offers advice on topics of self-care, short assignments to implement, lessons, printable worksheets, playlists, and daily inspiration for a whole week.
About the trainer – Mary England, Professional Merriment Maker
“My name is Mary, and I believe my purpose on this planet is to bring happiness to other people. I’ve struggled with mental illness since I was eight years old and lived in a dark place for a very long time but made it through to the other side where I landed on a pile of glitter.
I quit my day job at a psychiatric rehabilitation centre to focus on the things I love the most in this world, and over time I’ve created a space on the internet that I try to use to empower people like you to live your life loudly, the way you want, without letting others influence you one way or the other. I want to remind you what it’s like to play out in the street with the wonder of a child. I want to take your hand and tell you sincerely that you are beautiful.
I live in Baltimore, Maryland. I have a cat named Bug, a boyfriend named Joe, and a sincere passion for balloons, handwritten letters, and all things sparkly”.
We think that this training will be great for all of our In Great Company volunteers, as keeping yourself happy is one good way to ensure your own health is in its best place to help others.
