Self Care in the Zoom Era
By Michael Kushner
City Spotlights is in full gear and teen leaders are generating tons of creative and exciting art! With all the hard work teens are putting in, as well as the difficult world we leave in, we decided to create some time for self care. We discussed not just activities for self care, such as looking our best, deep reflective thought and physical activity, but also we talked about how each teen defined the “idea of self care.” Since many teens included music and art as part of their self care we all devised a “self-care” playlist and had a zoom dance party to practice movement and appreciation of art as our self care activity. We had a blast showing our arm chair dance moves! The teens will also be integrating their self care grooves throughout the program and perhaps a few tracks will even show up in our final showcase.
