Self-care playlist. Songs for burnout. Feel it, move it, change it.

As a final parting gift from this year’s conference “Weathering the Storm: Self-care in an age of burnout” I asked the conference presenters and attendees to add songs to a Playlist. This was my soundtrack for the ride home while I was still buzzing from conference. It’s also a resource I have dipped back into since.

The song suggestions mirrored the workshops, sometimes peaceful, sometimes angry, sometimes sad, sometimes uplifting. Songs from different decades and cultures.

Here is a collective resource from a therapist community in the midst of thinking about self-care.
