Over the past year, many of us have hit a “pandemic wall” characterized by Zoom fatigue, a lack of motivation, and burnout. Unfortunately, these strains to our physical and mental health are likely to persist even as we resume our lives after the pandemic. To build our personal resilience, we will have to reckon with emotional stressors, break unhelpful cycles, and create space to prioritize our wellness.
This event is presented in partnership with Southern California Grantmakers as part of their evolving Conversation Series, where progress-centered conversations meet tomorrow’s leaders. To kick off the series, we are excited to host therapist and mental wellness advocate Jor-El Caraballo, LMHC & Co-founder of Viva Wellness, and Omar Brownson, Co-founder & CEO of gthx. Together, Omar and Jor-El will recount their journeys as mental health advocates, unpack the oversaturated concept of self-care, discuss personal and professional boundaries, and explore how we can incorporate wellness into our daily lives.
