In this season of go-go-go, giving, and -- for my family -- birthday parties, I often find myself running a wee bit ragged. That's why I'm so excited about ARC Communications' "All About You" month, filled with great reminders about how to take care of myself, even as I take care of everyone and everything else. Those of us who work for and with nonprofit organizations tend to overlook the fact that we can do the most good for our missions if we are well rested, healthy and filled with joy. Remember: no one hands out prizes just because you persevere with stress steam coming out your ears and a headache the size of Maryland.
Make sure you look after yourself this month and enjoy all the season has to offer. See some art, take in live music or a play, go for a walk or have a drink with friends… and have fun!
