Happy !

This week, we hear from Sayeed Sanchez, Advocacy Manager at Mujeres Latinas en Accion (Chicago): "I practice self-care in a variety of ways, but one important and simple practice I have implemented this year is gentle yoga and stretching 2-3x a week. I am appreciative of the fact that I work hybrid, and on the days I work from home, I take advantage of stretching before jumping into morning meetings. I have found that taking just 10 minutes to light incense, practice yoga, and accompanying it with soothing music has greatly boosted my mood throughout the week."

Nearly two decades ago, the United Nations General Assembly designated Jan. 27 an annual day of commemoration for its member states in honor of the 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Na**sm. May we truly “never forget” the horrors we saw during that time. Check out the U.S. Holocaust Museum’s list of ways to honor the lives lost: https://www.ushmm.org/remember/international-holocaust-remembrance-day.

This week, we asked ICADV's own Sidney DeLeonardo, Capacity Building Support Specialist, “What is your favorite way to practice self-care?”.

She said: "One of my favorite self-care practices is yoga. It helps me quiet my mind and feel grounded and connected to my inner self."
