It’s almost as if we start to become someone else when we forget to take care of ourselves. Just like the characters in Oscar Wilde’s play, we put our true identities and needs aside in order to try and be someone we’re not, causing more stress that we don’t need! We have to remember our weaknesses, as well as our strengths. It’s essential that when we are doing our best that we are mindful that we’re performing at our best as well. This can also positively or negatively affect our work and our the organization or company we work for through something called the Bradford Factor.
Mindfulness is all about compassion and love toward yourself. Check in with yourself throughout the day and make sure you aren’t pretending to be something you’re not. Don’t beat yourself up when you don’t achieve all of those tasks on your to-do list.
If we don’t take the time to realign and refocus ourselves throughout the day, our work and performance will inevitably suffer.
So, take that walk around the block. Get that coffee. Text someone you love. Take time for you, throughout your day, especially if you’re feeling burnt out.
