If you know anything about me, it’s that I like to be on the move. That means planes, trains, and automobiles and constantly learning new things, meeting new people, and putting myself out there. But here’s something you may not know about me: I’m actually kind of an introvert! I do just fine once I’m “out there,” but most days it takes me putting on my big girl undies to do it. Which is why I am constantly building “Nicole Time” into my calendar to do the thing I am worst at: R-E-L-A-X.
If, like me, you have trouble unwinding, check out these unconventional ideas for caring for your mind, body, and soul. There’s even some sneak-attack exercise in there; think brain teasers and trampolines, people! Or if you need some extra chutzpah for your next networking event, I have some ideas for that as well (bonus: I define the word chutzpah, too!).
You can’t take care of others and take over the world unless you take care of yourself, first. So take a few deep breaths, unplug (or plug in to one of the apps I suggested this week) and get ready to be your best self.
