Redefining Normal De-stressing and Self Care for Youth Service Professionals | Roxbury | Free

Caring for yourself should not be a radical act! Working with children and youth is a profession of the heart. Most come into the field because they are dedicated and passionate about making the lives of children and youth better. When we give to others but neglect ourselves, resentment can set in. We must understand that Self-care is not selfish. Self-care is being intentional with your own health, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

He’s notorious for shouting his name and requesting that you do whatever he tells you…so put your damn hands up!

He is - and has been the most sampled voice in music for years! There is not a bar, club, venue, sports arena or stadium that you can go into on the planet earth and not hear his voice at least once a night!
