Scheduled self care days that you stick to. Intentional self talk, or self narration, when completing tasks. Planned joyful boredom, like coloring, or cloud watching.

Intentional moments are key! I took a mindfulness journey at the beginning of our Covidcation. Each morning, rain or shine, I went for a walk. I didn’t bring my phone, no music, just me and my thoughts. Reflection and observation. It got to where I was waking up hours earlier to go walk. Before I knew it, I was walking 5-6 miles each morning, all before breakfast! When you finally connect with mindfulness, you will understand. I have also read books like Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck, or The New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. The New Earth was a great resource to understanding mindfulness, or as referred to in the book “presence”. I LOVE THE “PLANNED JOYFUL BOREDOM” SUGGESTION!

Not crazy at all! Get down with your bad self! Hell yeah!! Proud of you :)

Try yoga!

Learn and practice the conscious discipline breathing strategies teach them to your students and practice them yourself in the classroom and encourage the students to practice them. Also notice when your body is feeling tense, your voice is raising or you are becoming cranky then tell yourself how your body is feeling connected to an emotion and stop to breathe

Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?

Anyone have experience with FDD at a B4 vs more of a specialized firm like A&M? I'd expect the latter to pay more, but curious if the deals worked on are actually different or there would be a diff vibe at an A&M tier. Trying to get out of audit, but not sure it's worth sticking in B4 since not feeling EY at the moment.

Hi fishes. Wanting to teach myself some coding languages and would like advice on the benefits of starting with R vs Python?

Would love insights on what lends itself better to working in more data oriented roles in tech. Thanks!
