Your Soul Food for Aug 12-19 2022: It’s Not a Great Resignation- It’s a Great Rethink!

Happy Soul Food Friday!

This week: Turn “I” to “We” and Illness becomes Wellness!

Heady-

It’s Not a Great Resignation- It’s a Great Rethink:

I urge you to explore your great re-think (opportunity to reboot) using an evidence-based model of me-search instead of research. If you are rebooting on purpose, do consider:

  • Micro-habits/micro-dosing healthy choices, doing “Small things often”
  • Picking an accountabuddy to keep you on course
  • Recognize that self-care is not selfish. Your wellbeing is important
  • Attend to Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs, with physical and psychological safety at the base, love and belonging in the middle, and significance and purpose at the apex. When we are in reactive brain our operating system is hijacked, we revert to our reptilian brain, and there is no room for the creative brain to emerge. Too much stress when we feel lack of safety, leads to burnout and that affects our mental health and that of our teams.

So… let’s all attend to a deep purpose practice, whatever that means to you, for long term sustainable performance and fulfillment.
