Career Self-Care with Minda Zetlin

We spend a tremendous amount of our lives working. Work can give meaning, purpose and direction to our lives, and it can be the place where we shine, grow and make a difference. It can also be a source of great stress and strain, especially when our work and home life blurs or becomes out of balance. In her new book, Career Self-Care: Find Your Happiness, Success, and Fulfillment at Work, writer Minda Zetlin explores dozens of concrete ways to improve work life in any kind of job or entrepreneurial setting. The key is taking steps to integrate self-care into work, including our mindset, our goals, the way we rest and the way we engage.

In this conversation we discuss:

  • Why career and self-care belong together;
  • Ways we can change our approach to work;
  • How we can look for solutions to make our particular work situation better;
  • How to break free from the work harder, longer, better, faster, more mentality.
