Americans of Conscience Checklist, Week of November 4

By Jen Hofmann

104 weeks down

The AoC Checklist features clear, well-researched actions for Americans who value democracy, equality, voting, and decency. We also practice gratitude, self-care, and celebration to stay engaged.

I value perseverance.

Take a day of rest this week.

For each person, self-care looks different, but doing something self-nourishing this week is a priority. Even if the elections yield the results you want, and even though there’s a lot of work still to be done, give yourself some down time. Some examples include doing a media fast, taking time in nature, gathering with friends, going to bed early, or playing with kids and/or pets. We need you here for the next election. And the one after that. But first, rest.
