Self-care is often associated with activities that help you take a load off of your mind, and yet LVL-Up co-founder Laura Jennings thinks of her work as self-care, which actually increases her mental load. In this article, Laura discusses how the work we do builds our identity and helps us practice self-care.
LVL-Up brings you a wealth of knowledge and professional experience from women who have worked all over the world in different professional settings. But let’s be real here, a lot of our best people management skills have come from being moms and managing our households.
Our clients rely on us to build strategies that are 1) fearless in their approach, yet adaptable in their execution; 2) solve complex problems with creative solutions; and 3) streamline multi-directional logistics into efficient processes.
Congratulations, you are starting the life of an EFM (Eligible Family Member). You have agreed to move every 2-3 years and will soon learn the weight of all of your clothes. You will become an expert at planning the unplannable.
In 2016 I left my job in management consulting to explore new career opportunities and to have time to support my family of five (plus a dog) as we transitioned from living in Brazil to moving back to the United States.
