Looking after yourself
As a comms director and leader you will devote time to looking after others in various ways. Please remember to look after yourself!
Communications professionals should never underestimate the toll our roles can take on us given all the things we support and get involved in.
Look after your own health and wellbeing.
A few things I do:
- nurture my support network and ask for help when I need it.
- get outside when I can for fresh air, a walk or if circumstances allow a wild swim.
- put protected time in my diary that can’t be eaten up by meetings.
- book time off in the future so I have things to look forward to outside of work.
What do you to to look after yourself?
I talk about looking after yourself as a leader in a number of episodes on my Behind The Bob podcast.
