Did you know the research is showing that women tended to fare the worst in terms of mental health during the past pandemic year?
Challenge, isolation, loss, and stress became the norm during the pandemic. Emerging data shows that women seemed to feel additional pressures from lockdown, school closures, and lack of childcare.
Because of my own struggles in this last year as well as what I was hearing from others, I applied for a grant to create an online program called TEND HER for women.
This purpose of TEND HER is twofold: 1) To teach self-compassion tools to refuel women’s souls, and 2) To help fortify our collective feminine mental health against future challenges as a result of the pandemic.
Why self-compassion? For starters, women struggle with it. Additionally, research shows it is linked to improved mental health, a positive sense of well being, and it may assist people in processing negative experiences.
It feels like the balm we all need after the year we’ve all had.
