What’s Rising In Importance For You?

I am finding I have new needs and preferences lately that are a result of the changes I am experiencing in my life and work. There is a small lake near my home that I had been to only once before this year. Since last spring, the lake has become an essential weekly outing for me. Going there restores me and gives me a much welcome change of scene – since so much of my life is now centered around home.

How about you? Are there new elements or practices in your life that have risen in importance to your balance and well-being this year?

The Managers Hub Blog will soon be transforming to Openings Blog. I’ll let you know when the change is about to occur. I hope to bring all my past Managers Hub posts together in a document and gift that to readers. Your thoughts and questions are welcome!

Weariness

Sometimes you get weary. It is inevitable with the pace of work and life today. Even with a good balance to your life, you can run out of steam. What do you do when you are weary? The key is to stop and restore. Sometimes, you cannot stop right away as you have deadlines or demands that must be attended to. In that case, endure, but don’t go too long. You can wear yourself out and that does you no good.

Develop a pattern of restoration to employ when you feel weary. Perhaps it will involve getting out of your environment, rejuvenating with rest, identifying the root cause of your weariness and addressing it or having some fun. Weariness doesn’t serve you. When it shows up, acknowledge your weariness and eliminate it.
