Are you joining us this week for our conversation with Deloitte’s Chief Well-being Officer and Thrive Global’s Work-Life Integration Editor-at-Large Jen Fisher, and Morgan Stanley Managing Director Keren Ehrenfeld? The talk is called Workplace Wellness: achieving goals & avoiding burnout. We’re not going to sit there and help you determine if you’re too busy or stressed or overwhelmed (lol) – we’re having an open and honest discussion on the topic and encouraging our speakers to get super real and specific about their experiences and more. Sign up to join us and reply back with questions you’d like to ask our speakers.
Ahead of our conversation on Thursday, this weekend we talked self-care moves that work for you. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed right now, as we’re still working to meet academic, professional and personal demands while navigating this new world that is slowly opening back up. Through all of this, make sure you’re taking care of you, doing whatever works best for you. A number of you shared your self-care moves:
Shannon shared that it’s getting in bed early
Becki shared she’s going to the gym again, even if that means the dishes and work need to wait
Andrea shared how she loves walking her dog to take a step away from things (“she is so annoying by pulling that makes me forget everything else”)
Caroline said working out in the morning
Allison shared her favorite self-care romcoms
A lot of you said sleep :)
As we move into this “new world” and everyone tries to configure the best working schedules & setups, I’m doing my best to take a look at how things used to be, how they’ve been over the last year or so, and figuring what should stay from both. After everything we’ve experienced and learned, do we really want to go back to the same old ways? In the words of a mug shared by Spanx’s Sara Blakely, “not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear the path.” Taking a hard look at the hard lessons of the last year and trying to figure out what should stick around as we move forward.
Our deep dive with Miss Excel last week was excellent and we’re thrilled to add another session to the calendar next week, talking about lookups and advanced pivot table uses. Great way to brush up on your skills or get ready for bschool if you’re headed there in the fall. If you don’t yet follow her on social media, find @miss.excel for a preview of her lessons and join us next week. Also bring questions, she generously offered to stick around until all of them are answered, so sign up to join us live.
Sending you good vibes for the week ahead…
