WHO WE ARE

Working in helping professions is hard and exhausting work. Burnout and high staff turnover, unfortunately, are all too common within nonprofits and churches. Nonprofit professionals and pastors leave their jobs too soon, exist in a state of survival and go through life exhausted often sacrificing their own well-being for the sake of their job. We believe there is a better way. Burnout, staff turnover, exhaustion, and decreased job effectiveness don’t have to define the good work nonprofit organizations are accomplishing. When individuals can be mindful of their own personal health and invest in their own growth and self-care they are more effective employees, healthier humans, and more satisfied with their job and life.

Day 7 is built on a very simple truth — we do not have to sacrifice ourselves, our health or our relationships,  we can prioritize our healthy and still do our work well. We exist to equip nonprofit professionals with the resources they need to lead healthy, sustainable lives.


THE TRADITIONAL NONPROFIT CYCLE

Call to Service

CALL TO SERVICE

A passion to serve and help others is kindled.

Limits are pushed

LIMITS ARE PUSHED

You self-sacrifice, overcommit, and feel a pressure to do even more than you’re doing. The work never stops and there is always more to do.

BURN OUT

Stress, exhaustion, unrealistic expectations, lack of boundaries, and the inability to say no becomes normal.

TEMPORARY ESCAPE FOR ‘REST’

Sabbaticals, weekends, vacation days, or retreats for short-lived rejuvenation.

Then The Cycle repeats.

WHY DAY 7

We believe that to truly thrive in the life we have to pay attention to all areas of who we are. That is why at Day 7 we focus on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual parts of each individual.

When nonprofit professionals and pastors prioritize their well being and have a solid support network they are able to do their job better and lead a more sustainable life -prioritizing self care eliminates burnout, increases effectiveness, and deepens their commitment to their work.

Day 7 provides the resources to pastors and nonprofit professionals so that they are equipped to not just survive, but thrive in their roles. We prioritize the holistic health of who they are and offer am integrative approach to focusing on their own care and well-being so that they are operating from a place of health and wholeness.
