Hello ladies, working in leadership in corporate America can be challenging at times. There is a lot of responsibility put on you, deadlines, team meetings, and not to mention pressures from top executives. And that’s just at work. Then you have to go home and walk into a totally different world that requires just as much if not more from you.
How do you keep yourself emotionally balanced? I will share three steps to self-kindness and compassion that I practice daily and share with my clients.
STEP ONE: Mindfulness
A nonjudgmental receptive mind state in which you observe your thoughts and feelings in the present moment.
S Stop what you are doing and take a moment to pause.
T Take a deep breath, in and out slowly.
O Observe your thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
P Proceed with something that puts a smile on your face.
STEP TWO: Grace
Don’t try to be perfect, just be real. If you mess up, own it, and keep it moving.
Guilt, shame, and blame help no one.
Practice letting go of things that are out of your control.
Do one thing each day that makes you feel good about yourself.
STEP THREE: Celebrate
Accept, encourage, and empower yourself in the moment.
It doesn’t have to be a special occasion. Make everyday accomplishments special to you.
It is OK to pat yourself on the back for getting all of the laundry done or cleaning the kitchen completely before you go to bed. It’s about your mental and emotional health, so take care of you!
