When the pandemic hit in 2020, we all experienced feelings of disconnection from our co-workers, friends, families, communities, and even ourselves. As challenging as it has been, we all learned some important lessons. We learned the importance of human connection. We learned that we can still all show up for our community. And most importantly, we learned that we need to take care of ourselves to be able to take care of others.

On this episode, Deloitte Chief Well-being Officer Jen Fisher talks with Shelly Tygielski, founder of Pandemic of Love, author of Sit Down to Rise Up, and a self-care activist, about mindfulness, self-care, and the concept of communities of care.

Self-care really can be an active resistance. Self-care is not self-indulgent. Self-care is just an act of perseverance, and self-preservation. Self-care is not individualistic.

- Shelly Tygielski, author, Sit Down to Risk Up
