Watch a talk by a psychologist on self-care tips for our everyday life. Photo:

We invited a psychologist to join us online and share some tips on self-care in our everyday life, not only in these difficult times. You can watch the recording of her talk for free. 

We know how to heal physical wounds; we know what to do when we feel under the weather. But do we know how to heal mental pain like loneliness, rejection or failure? 

Expats are already far away from their safety net of their family and friends. And now, due to covid restrictions, you don’t even have regular personal contact with colleagues at work, which may once again increase the feelings of isolation. Let’s see how we can take our mental health as seriously as physical health and explore how to heal common heartaches. And why there is no shame in asking for help from an expert. It all starts and ends with how we take care of ourselves. How much care we give ourselves. Yet, real self-care is a lot more than a wellness day or buying some flowers for our apartment. We asked Markéta Horáková, Creative Director and Founder of Terapie v Lese, a forest therapy project, to join us online for one evening.
