Download a PDF of the Zero Ceiling newsletter from February 2022 to learn what we’ve been up to this month. In it, we talk about our focus on staff wellness, our trip to the Museum of Anthropology at UBC, the return of the Adventure Sessions, and we call out Hockey Helps the Homeless for yet another amazing donation to our programs.

Here’s a sneak peek:

How are you today?

I am good. Busy but not too stressed, which is a nice place to be for a grants and communications writer. I feel like the more time I have, the more shiny, new projects I start, which then means the more tasks I have to drop when the next wave of deadlines arrives. I am intentionally taking things slow and easy, knowing that I’ll thank myself next month when the grant season ramps up and I’ve still got fuel in the tank.

This idea of leaning into seasonality and the natural cycle of things is one we’ve been kicking around a lot here at ZC HQ as we try to support balance and health with the needs of our program participants and the organization. But it’s a fine line to walk. At what point does resisting our need for rest become unsustainable? When does productivity and “bigger! better! faster! stronger!” turn into burnout?
