As counselors, we do so much for our students, but how do you actually show up for yourself in supporting your own wellness?
This is just one of many great questions that we’re going to challenge you to ask yourself today. In this episode of Counselor Chat, Dr. Sandi Logan from Oceanic Yoga and Wellness joins me to discuss the topic of bringing accountability to your own wellness as a counselor.
Dr. Sandi emphasizes the importance of connection and commitment in supporting personal wellness. She introduces the Indivisible Self Model of Wellness, which focuses on five key elements: creative, social, physical, coping, and essential self.
