Professional Self-Care and the Art of “Showing Up”
How can we be more engaged and authentic in our professional lives? In an episode full of great tips on professional self-care and authenticity, our guest Bethany Cranfield shares two key mantras that stand out.
The first is that we must keep “All bars on green” meaning we optimize our professional practices so that they don’t evaporate our energy by day’s end. We can do this by prioritizing self-care, but also by setting professional boundaries in ways that might make us uncomfortable at first. Especially if we are habitual overachievers!
The second is that we “show up” on our professional social channels. This means taking our true selves and unique perspectives, tailoring them to the professional environment, and then claiming space online by sharing them. Bethany advocates for making connections for connection’s sake and allowing networking and business development opportunities to arise as a natural byproduct. So just by showing up, we both honor ourselves and nutrify our professional prospects.
If you are an overachiever who wants to continue getting things done without omitting self-care and connection, this episode is a must-listen.
