Self-Care Can Get You Across the Finish Line
Article by Margo Andersen
April 14, 2021

Enjoy this 5 minute read and get ready to learn how to destress and take time for yourself.

“The mental, emotional, and physical toll of the COVID-19 pandemic is real, especially for working women. After one year of lockdowns, homeschooling, working from home, event restrictions, case statistics, and vaccine rollouts, most working women are close to breaking. The burdens of caring for family members and carrying on with an unchanging workload has given many of us an added level of stress that may be wreaking havoc with our health in more ways than one.”
