This year, our focus is on leadership and self-care. Our honorees were asked to tell our readers how they incorporate self-care into their busy life.
The busyness of schedules warrants self-care, maintained inside out…. If you feel good, often you look good. While many (including myself) are ritualistic when it comes to pedicures, hair appointments, and spa treatments, who can say they actively set aside time and intentional thought, auditing their inner self and all, it encompasses? Studying what drives them, devalues them, misleads them with prideful boasts, or celebrates and recreates what another leader has gifted as lessons learned? Uninterrupted meditative time to search oneself. Taking what’s innermost and writing/singing/dancing/proclaiming what is true to you to keep your path aligned to you.
