We are each born with a sense of agency and the ability to rise up and become a force for good. But unless we’re effectively resourced, in part through self-care, we limit what we have to give to the world. In her new book, Sit Down to Rise Up: How Radical Self-Care Can Change the World, Shelly Tygielski sees self-care as truly a selfless act, and a way to expand our view of the “self” to include our family, community, human beings across the globe, and the natural world.
