At Gold Crown Foundation, we aim to practice what we preach. For Mental Health Awareness Month, we asked our staff what they do to put themselves first. Take a look at what self care means to the GCF staff. What does self care mean to you?
Being intentional about taking time for myself to reset by doing things I enjoy like being outside & hiking!

Enjoying the Colorado outdoors with family.

Taking really artistic pictures of my dog, Dexter.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by exercising regularly, and by trying to look like Michael Jordan. Why do you think my head is bald?!
-Jeff, Sports Operations Director
Watching my kids play sports they love!

Carving out the time to do something by myself for myself. It is all about getting it on the calendar and then loving yourself enough to honor the appointment.

Gardening! We started a pepper garden this spring and are so excited to make salsas, pickled peppers, and tons of other yummy things with our home grown produce.

Getting outside with family and friends! Going to the mountains to ski, hike, or just spend some quality time in the car on I-70!

Moving my body everyday! These days it's typically a walk vs. a workout, bonus points if it's during "golden hour." Endorphins make you happy!

Taking time off to enjoy Las Vegas with my wife!

Many things...one of those being isolation. Taking a moment to be alone so you can reflect on your past doings and future actions.

Enjoying the Colorado weather on the golf course.

My Pilates reformer, one of my most prized possessions! I first was introduced to Pilates as therapy when suffering chronic back pain and it is now my “go to” workout option that I really love!
