Why a focus on Self-Care?

Despite bold visions for social justice, the public, nonprofit and private sectors collectively are currently unable to effectively address extreme inequality and ensure a good quality of life for all in our communities, as evidenced by the millions who struggle to thrive or survive. As we sacrifice physical, economic, emotional, social and spiritual health and personal happiness to serve vulnerable communities, we find ourselves unhappy and dissatisfied with the conditions in which we work, our work process and the results of our work.

This unhappiness and dissatisfaction has consequences on our personal health and well-being and reduces our organizational effectiveness. Despite global evidence that links organizational effectiveness with worker health and happiness and that correlates health more strongly with happiness than any other variable including income, many organizational development or leadership development solutions focus only on the individual or the organization, without recognizing how the two are connected.

Sweet Livity™ works with clients to articulate a value proposition for personal self-care, to clearly state the connection of personal well-being and sustainability to organizational effectiveness and sustainability.

Services range from leadership and wellness coaching, to healing and wellness retreats offered for one person, or a group of individuals seeking to support self-care within a group context, e.g., team, organization, agency, coalition.


Self-care services are offered in a convenient and accessible way for clients to gain awareness, knowledge, tools and practices achieve the following results:

  • Improve effectiveness and sustainability to serve the community.
  • Reduce work-related stress, promote work-life balance and experience increased well-being.
  • Heal from past traumas and stress to regain and continually relate in harmony and health with self, community and the environments in which you live, work and play.
  • Optimize capacity to draw strength and energy from life’s joys and sorrows with a sense of balance, aliveness and well-being.
