It's time to share some good reads for the weekend. Themes in these articles? Workplace and wellness. A few of my favorite topics. Always room for improvement in those two areas, right? Enjoy, and please let me know what you think in the comments, or over on my Facebook page.
Interesting take here on what we should value most about a workplace. Not money, not flexibility or upward mobility, but culture. It makes sense to me, because culture probably has a big influence on all those other factors that may be more top of mind.
This list totally captivated me! Seriously. I don't believe this is a strictly female issue, so guys, you should read up as well. It's 25 tales of well-known women talking about money. Not fun, right? We need to talk about it more, until the problem goes away. I heard some really great theories about this at TedXStLouisWomen on Thursday, I can't wait to share more about it in another post.
I stumbled upon this next link after following a TedX panelist on Twitter (@clioknowles). Richard Branson is obviously onto something when it comes to living a big life with intention, so when he writes about his tips and tricks, I'm all ears...er...eyes.
I'm always looking for ways to be just a little healthier, and I know I'm not alone. I sent this easy read to about five people and bookmarked it for myself. It's the little things that add up to the big things, as they say. I probably won't start weighing myself 'often' as the article suggests, but I will continue to fit in more veggies and steps wherever possible. Anybody else use the iPhone app to see how many steps you've taken? Not sure how accurate it is, but it's been a helpful marker for me.
And here's my favorite find of the week. I even shared it on my Facebook page. I relate to Savannah's take on beauty and self-confidence because of our shared career field, plus I've been a big fan of hers for years (way before the Today Show gig!). When I worked in Virginia, my sister surprised me with a trip to see a live broadcast of her show with Chuck Todd. Hashtag FanGirl.
Don't forget to let me know your takeaways! Curios if they're similar to mine or something totally different.
Have a wonderful weekend.
