Did you know that more than 59% of America’s women are in the labor force and almost 47% of U.S. workers are women? Impressive, right? It’s safe to say that women have become key players in our country’s business market. And with that heavy-lift comes the possibility of burnout. In this “always-on” culture, we are exposed to the likelihood of professional exhaustion which inevitably overflows into our personal lives.
Interestingly enough, we have seen a rise in the wellness industry amid this grind. It makes total sense that with the hustle comes a need for self-care. Which is why we have brought our first ever Self Care Summit to sunny Los Angeles. We have carved out a day to shine a light on women killing it in and out of the wellness industry to showcase what self-care means to them. This day will not only leave you reinvigorated to spearhead the Mondays to come but also ready you to amp up your own self-care regimen. Follow along to see what the day has in store.
