The LifeLabs Learning value that most resonates with me and why: Be Kind to Your Mind is the LifeLabs Learning value that resonates most with me. I spent 7 years working in social services and healthcare, where it was incredibly difficult to ask for space or breaks. As someone who enjoys staying busy, I sometimes have a difficult time saying “no.” I’m still learning what recharges me, what grounds me, and what brings me joy and peace. I appreciate being actively encouraged to do things for myself that are good for my overall well-being, instead of being expected to be a working machine 24/7. I am trying to lean into the fact that healing, resting, and exploring are all productive things essential to a well-rounded life.
