Taking Care of Yourself

What you eat matters.

Building your strength, endurance, and flexibility through exercise matters.

How much sleep you get matters.

Taking time to relax and rejuvenate matters.

Laughing matters.

Time with people important to you matters.

Hobbies matter.

You can read professional journals, participate in webinars, have the very best mentors, and attend all the conferences you want, but if you don't take good care of the person behind the professional, it won't matter.

Agreed. For some added perspective and inspiration, I invite you to check out this short video -- ahamoment.com/pg/moments/view/5495 -- about the “aha moment” of a woman with rheumatoid arthritis that changed her outlook on life. I think you’ll enjoy it and hope you’ll also check out the rest of the site, which was created by Mutual of Omaha to highlight inspirational stories, good works, and “aha moments” of all kinds.

Best,
