You’re working to make the world a better place.
But are you looking after you?
You’re a changemaker who has a vision of making a difference in the world. You also have the passion, drive and tenacity to make it happen.
Problem is, there’s so much to do! Deadlines, an endless To-Do list, a crazy number of emails. Juggling work life and home life (and if you’re lucky, a social life). Finding time for sleep and food and maybe some time-out …
Somehow you get by, but often only just. At times you question whether working like this is wise, and wonder how much longer you can sustain this pace and intensity.
Is it possible to make a difference with less stress + more ease?
My name is Erin O’Brien. I love helping changemakers to make a bigger impact in the world by remembering to look after themselves.
Tragically, there are too many brilliant changemakers in our world who feel overwhelmed, exhausted or on the brink of burn-out. Ironically, when changemakers aren’t at their best, not only do they suffer … but the social causes that they are so passionate about suffer too.
I believe that true, sustainable social change can only occur when the people behind the social causes are no longer running on empty.
So I’m putting my money where my mouth is. Each month I give cash to a Changemaker of the Month on one condition: they must spend the money on self-care or self-improvement. Read more about Donate28.
