Nourish yourself. Express yourself. These are the guidepost to follow in a time of crisis. If you think about the plane’s safety speech and they instruct you if the oxygen masks are deployed, you need to put your own mask on first before you help others.
You can’t draw from an empty well. And in a time of crisis, when you need to lead, if you are not nourishing yourself, practicing self-care and expressing yourself, you will not have enough energy to be a strong, respected leader.
So, today, take the time to take care of yourself. Then lead.
