11 Self-Care Steps For Leaders Who Are Barely Holding On
Motivation is hard. And comfort food feels so good. But it’s more important now than ever to stay healthy.

Even if you don’t find answers as you write, the act of turning those ethereal feelings into something more tactile through your fingertips has a way of clearing the cobwebs.

This will also give you a more accurate record of your thoughts, feelings and actions that will serve you well as the days turn into weeks and possibly months.

11. Have some fun

If you’re in lockdown with others, get out a puzzle, or board games, or photo album. Reminisce and laugh.

Use the available technology to have virtual parties with distant friends and family members.

Don’t be so serious all the time.

Laughter and joy are gifts from God.

Open them up and play with them.
