What is a Social Hour?

Self-Care Social Hours are opportunities (in-person, online, or over the phone) for meaningful, supportive, and fun conversations that acknowledge both the difficulty and importance of taking are of our health. We believe being connected to others is a powerful approach to making self-care more attainable.

How Do Social Hours "Work"?

It’s simple! Just bring together a group of people and intentionally start a self-care conversation that matters. <— Okay, that part can get a little tricky. But don’t worry, we got your back. Here are a few things to help you get started:

  • You can independently host your own event (check out our freebie guides and our more in-depth resources at the shop).
  • Or you can work directly with Self-Care Social Hour to facilitate and/or coordinate your event. 
    • Facilitation – We arrive in-person or virtually to guide the conversation and overall experience.
    • Coordination – We set up the conversation and experience with activities and sometimes the event space, refreshments, and other goodies.

Why Do Social Hours "Work"?

They’re engaging. Social Hours are fun! Activities are designed to involve everyone in a down-to-earth way. Humor is often used as a means to help people relax, participate, and connect.

They’re meaningful. Social Hours can be playful and lighthearted meet-ups, but they should always have moments of meaning. Self-Care is different for each person and we are intentional in digging up meaning for everyone.

They’re flexible. Social Hours can vary in location, overall “vibe”/goals of the group and activities, frequency of meeting, and duration. You can independently host your own events using SCSH resources or contact us to coordinate and/or facilitate events for you.
