I was so grateful on Friday for the insights provided by Arianna Huffington, Mika Brzezinski, and their impressive cast of characters, that I took it to heart and retired before writing my weekly gratitude post. But I wanted to express my thanks that these high-profile, successful women (and men) are demystifying the notion of 'self-care'. thriveThe discussion focused on how important it is that we, as ambitious professional women (and men), take care of ourselves, by sleeping, taking time away from technology, colleagues, and even friends and family, to just do things that make US feel happy and restored. This theme is particularly important to those of us in the social sector, where contrary to stereotypes, we often work harder and for less material reward. And so burn out faster. So thank you, Arianna and friends for giving us cover to get a good night's sleep.
