(Article) “16 Tips for Avoiding Climate Burnout
(Poem) Let This Darkness Be A Bell Tower by Rilke
(Quote) “Caring for myself is not a self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” ― Audre Lorde, A Burst of Light
(Quote) “Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.”― Khalil Gibran
(Quote) “The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
(Quote) “Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.” — Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum



STEP 7: Take​ ​Breaks​ ​And​ ​Rest​ ​As​ ​Needed

(Quote) “Caring for myself is not a self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” ― Audre Lorde, A Burst of Light
