Too many working parents focus solely on those around them, completely losing sight of what they need themselves. But neglecting your own needs and wants can prevent you from being healthy, productive, and happy. Taking Care of Yourself provides expert advice to help you identify what you value most out of your work and home life, make choices that align with those values, and manage the emotions that come with them.
You'll learn to: prioritize the areas of your life that are most important to you-and let go of what's not; cope with the sacrifices you're making both at work and at home; deal with the feelings that come with being a working parent, including guilt; carve out time for your mental health and your physical well-being; communicate your needs and expectations with your boss and your family; and feel more present both at work and at home.
The HBR Working Parents series supports listeners as they anticipate challenges, learn how to advocate for themselves more effectively, juggle their impossible schedules, and find fulfillment at home and at work.
