  • Staying actively connected with colleagues and support systems.
  • Creating more opportunities for discussion and support among ourselves.
  • Finding ways to stay engaged in social action and social justice work
  • Avoiding burnout and overwork
  • Making time for rest and relaxation, which are essential for mental and physical health.
