Virtual Event Virtual Event

As December approaches, the importance of rest becomes more crucial than ever. That’s why Young People in Recovery Allegheny County in conjunction with counselors for social justice invite you to take part in our “Rest is Advocacy” campaign! This is more than just an event: it’s a commitment to making rest a daily practice in your life for one week, recognizing it as a radical act of self-care and liberation.

🌟 Your Commitment: By joining us, you pledge to dedicate time each day for rest, embracing this practice as a powerful statement against burnout and stress. To support your journey, text the keyword “Rest” to 844-779-6749. You’ll receive inspiring mantras from “Rest is Resistance,” the book by Tricia Heresy guiding you towards a more balanced and restful life.

🎤 Key Messages: Rest is a Radical Act: Learn how resting daily challenges societal norms and empowers you. The Inherent Right to Rest: Emphasize that everyone deserves time for rejuvenation. Rest as a Form of Liberation: Understand rest as a key to personal freedom from relentless demands.

👥 Who Should Attend? This event is ideal for any human being eager to embrace rest as a vital part of their daily routine, especially during high-pressure periods like finals week.

🌿 Join Us: Come learn, share, and support each other in this commitment. Your journey towards a balanced, restful life is not just a personal choice, but a collective act of advocacy.

💬 RSVP and Share: Confirm your attendance and encourage your friends to join. Together, we can make a bold statement: committing to rest is not just necessary; it’s a powerful act of advocacy. #RestIsAdvocacy #CommitToRest #ResistBurnout See less
