Five Ways to Prioritize Your Wellbeing

These past few years have emphasized the importance of health, both physical and mental, and the overall need for wellness in the workplace. Being a great leader, contributor, colleague, and friend requires energy, presence, and health.

Here are five ways to prioritize your wellbeing:

  1. Spend time working on, not just in, your role
  • Examine where you spend your time and if you are managing it successfully.
  • Collaborate with colleagues to find synergies and efficiencies.
  • Learn about the Priority Matrix and experiment this week.
  1. Incorporate self-care into your workday (just not after)
  • Clean and organize your workspace.
  • Hang up art or pictures that inspire you. Bring in a plant.
  • Be disciplined about holding time for eating well and exercising.
  • Develop and/or maintain supportive, balanced relationships. Be mindful of people and activities that energize vs. drain you and adjust accordingly where possible.
  1. Embrace a resilient mindset
  • Reframe challenges by asking “what would this look like if it were easy?”.
  • Be cautious jumping too quickly to autopilot without considering an alternative approach.
  • Actively seek feedback and support from your colleagues and supervisor.
  1. Get back in touch with your why.
  • Reflect on what initially drew you to your role within the organization.
  • Consider what drives you to do what you do. Incorporate this as motivation into your daily or weekly work.
  1. Practice gratitude and have fun!
  • You are surrounded by committed and talented professionals.
  • Who and what are you grateful for in your organization?
  • Enjoy the work you do and how you drive the purpose and mission of the company.
