8th Self-Care Tip From One of Our Staff

8th Self-Care Tip From One of Our Staff

Enjoy our special self-care tip series for Activist Appreciation Month! Watch for them throughout February and the last week of March.

My activist self care tips include daily physical exercises, 8 hours of sleep a night, a vegan lifestyle as well as reviewing and sharing the profound statements, wisdom and lives of those courageous and compassionate individuals who have gone before us, who inspired and continue to inspire and motivate me and millions of others to never ever give up their/our fight on behalf of our fellow less fortunate beings, human and nonhuman alike; individuals such as St. Francis of Assisi, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and Cesar Chavez, to name but a few. Not to mention my Facebook friends and the deeply caring individuals who are doing all they can to see that the cancer of “animal ownership” and all the exploitations, cruelties, killings and abandonments that are associated with it become things of the past.

And of course the past and present staff, Board and supporters of IDA, to whom I and our animal friends owe such a depth of gratitude; and lest I forget my other thee sources of inspiration to be the best I can be for the longest time I can be, for they are my daughters Raquel and Danielle and my grandson Jackson.
