Work/life balance and the importance of looking after our own wellbeing
Welcome to this session on personal wellbeing.
In this course, the focus is on looking after ourselves. This is something many conservationists can struggle to pay enough attention to, though if we do, it can have clear benefits – for ourselves, those we work with, and the work itself.
We hope at the end of this course you come away with a better understanding of the areas you need to pay better attention to, and some practical ideas to take on board to help reduce stress and improve your personal wellbeing.
