Fight the holiday whirlwind! Focus on YOU.

Posted by Jane McLeod on Dec 6, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Leaders already have a superhero complex. We already think that we can handle more than any other human being on earth. The holiday season REALLY brings out that particular personality trait in all of us. It takes real consideration and a BIG reality check to make sure the holidays do not leave you in the worst whirlwind of the year. Remember, you are not Batman (he had Robin to do his shopping, I am sure), or even Martha Stewart. It’s Martha’s JOB to make the rest of us look inept! You are a human being, with lots of daily responsibilities, to a lot of people.  Work does not slow down this time of the year. Your responsibilities are the same at work, and your home life is amped up with even more responsibilities.  How are you going to manage??

Posted by Jane McLeod on Mar 8, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Many of you have heard me tell the story of how my hubby and I attempted to mindfully eat. I was simply trying to stop multi-tasking, which I know lessens my IQ. I thought it was a double bonus that research was telling me that if I could not multitask while eating I may actually be able to lose weight. Without dieting yet!

Laughter:  A New Work Requirement

Posted by Jane McLeod on Feb 1, 2017 8:00:00 AM

 

"Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face." Victor Hugo 

When considering how to bring true joy into your workplace, consider laughter. I know of a hospital and clinic that actually wrote “fun” into their behavioral standards. We love this! Why not? When else do you feel truly joyful than when you are laughing? The sound of a baby or child laughing can bring all of us to laughter immediately (....so can watching someone fall off a bike, but that is just me!?!)
