“Take Care of Yourself”

That's a Good Thing

“Take Care of Yourself”

You hear people say it all the time — but we mean it.

Running a business in the middle of a pandemic is no joke, so please take time when you need it to care for yourself. It’s true, we all willingly signed up for this adventure of a lifetime called entrepreneurship. But none of us expected to run a business amid a global pandemic.

Real talk —> the stress of COVID-19 can start to make our extraordinary adventure feel like an extraordinary shit show fast if we’re not intentional about taking care of ourselves.

Fortunately, you’ve got a community at your fingertips ready to help and offer up nuggets of wisdom when the stress starts to pile up (especially around the holidays). That’s why this week’s collection is full of ways to be kinder to your mind, body, and biz.

Routine not working? Drop it sans the guilt. Tired of FOMO? Try JOMO instead. And if finding time to work out only adds to the stress in your life, these yoga chair moves should help. We also have links to keep going and growing despite all that life throws at us.

So go ahead, get scrolling and remember to take care of yourself, boss. We mean it. 😉
