Are You The Boss You’d Like?

Well, are you?

If you were your own boss (and maybe you are, as I am) would people be queuing up to get in your team based on how you treat yourself?

Try honestly answering the following questions:

Do you treat yourself well? By which I mean do you look after yourself when working?

Do you take regular breaks? Grab some fresh air at least once a day?

Do you have a proper lunch break away from your desk/workplace at least three times a week?

Do you regularly praise yourself for a job well done?

Do you celebrate your successes?

Do you invest in yourself, take advantage of training on offer?

I hope you can answer yes to a good few of those. if not, time to give yourself an appraisal! Got to dash. the sun is shining and I’m going into the garden for 15 minutes!

Please share your ‘look after yourself’ tips!

    Thanks for this Jane, I too am my own boss …. and a busy one at the moment. And Yes we need to do this check list now and then to make sure we stay in check 🙂

    And when the sun comes out, blue skies but a bit misty here at the moment , I’ll be having my tea break outside today.

      You know as I wrote that I was also sending myself a message! I sat in my garden in the sun yesterday and reminded myself to take more breaks! Enjoy yours. 🙂
