Take Care of Yourself

Forgive me if this seems a bit off topic.  However, this article from PSMJ resonated for me and I thought I’d pass it on.

In today’s economy, we are all pushed to do more. Downsizing and the reluctance of firms to hire with current economic uncertainties mean that all of us must take on more responsibilities without the support that we had just a few months prior. While this may have made us more productive, this will inevitably take its toll in our personal health, happiness, well-being, and our families.

Many times, when a job at hand is all consuming, you may run yourself down and actually end up doing subpar work. For example, you may have to work through the night to complete a submittal on deadline, spend the weekend rewriting a report from a sub that was poorly written, or run out of time and have to hand over a poorly written status update to a client. All the time, you miss family events and essential sleep because of work commitments.

Here are four things you can implement today to take care of yourself:
