Self-Care

TagLast edit: 3 Jun 2020 8:21 UTC by Aaron Gertler

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.

You have more than one goal, and that’s fine
