"Showing Up" E-Course

a how-to guide for managing your life (and the people in it)

It can be really, REALLY hard to show up, both for others and for ourselves. Because WHO HAS THE TIME? Or the energy?

We live in a world that has taught us to put our kids or partners or friends or colleagues or strangers before ourselves... and also to put our own busy lives before pretty much everything and everyone else. It’s a vicious cycle of selfish vs. selfless. And it’s just. too. much.

The Still Kickin team (and a crew of attendees!) spent a weekend in northern Minnesota this fall learning how to make all of this "showing up" stuff feel more manageable. This e-course is for those who couldn't attend in person and for the friends who attended and want to revisit some of the material. It's led by 10 different instructors and presented by Still Kickin co-founder Nora McInerny.

This e-course will:

  • Help you define and identify ways to prioritize showing up within your life.
  • Identify personal barriers and choices that diminish prioritizing your own needs.
  • Share new activities and reflections that can be integrated into your life to help rejuvenate and center yourself.
  • Help to create a plan for prioritizing your needs so you can show up where and when it matters most.

We can’t take care of anyone else if we don’t know how to take care of ourselves. Let's learn how to set healthy boundaries, build sustainable support systems, and just… ya know… rest?
