I mentioned the wonderful book, Life Launch: A Passionate Guide to the Rest of Your Life by Pamela D. McLean and Frederic M. Hudson, in my Transition blog.
I wrote about how graduates and those in career transition can feel stuck in Phase II: The Doldrums and now I’d like to talk about the next part of the cycle, Phase III: Cocooning. This is a time for reflection that should be enjoyed.
The way our fast paced work world is we don't usually get time to reflect and slow down.
Find what works for you in your schedule to make some time to reflect. It can be something as simple as walking, meditating, taking some deep breaths, enjoying a good laugh, and so on...To be present of what you are accomplishing and aware of what direction you want to go next will go far in helping you to accomplish your career goals.
Can you think of other ideas to help you make the time to reflect and practice some self-care?
