You are your most important employee.
Are you the type of person who takes care of everyone else first before taking care of yourself? There’s a reason those airplane safety videos always say to put your own oxygen mask on first before helping someone else. If you can’t take care of yourself, how can you take care of others? Still, entrepreneurs tend to go 100 miles an hour before suddenly realizing the gas gauge is on E. This classroom will teach you why it’s important to take time for yourself in a lifestyle that never quits moving.
In the Self-Care Classroom, you’ll learn:
- Stress-relieving techniques.
- The importance of vacation time.
- Signs to look out for regarding depression or overwhelm.
- How to make time for your spiritual health.
Take time for your physical, mental, and spiritual health.
