Ways to be your best during the Holidays and beyond
It is no secret that women tend to wear a lot of hats and do a lot for others. Whether they are women business owners, women executives, or professional women – or even stay at home moms, let’s face it – women often leave their own buckets empty. During the holidays it seems it’s even easier to without meaning to, set yourself up for failure by doing much for others and leaving yourself depleted and wanting.
We scoured the internet for some great advice about “ways to be your best” as we know first hand how hard it is to consistently take care of yourself on a regular basis.
Here’s what we found. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

She talks about two very different personality types who are fictitious but the gist of the piece speaks to a need to center yourself, take care of yourself first, and plan your day out and act methodically finding or creating opportunities to care for yourself along the way. She recommends…
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up.
2. Define your top 3.
3. The 50/10 Rule. Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments.
4. Move and sweat daily.
5. Express gratitude.
6. Reflect daily. Bring closure to your day through 10 minutes of reflection.
