Self-care

TagLast edit: 13 May 2021 15:05 UTC by EA Wiki assistant

Use the self-care tag for posts about caring for one’s own emotional, mental, or physical health.

Effective altruism can be intense, difficult, and even overwhelming; fortunately, the Forum contains a lot of good posts on how we can stay healthy and maintain balance as we try to do as much good as we can.
