5 Minutes Inner Work for Compassionate Leaders to Prevent Emotional Burnout

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance!” Oscar Wilde

Now Try This

Sit in stillness to discover your own needs:

  • Imagine your cup is filled 100% today, what’s that like? 
  • What is one simple thing you can do to fill your own cup today?
  • What is one thing you can do this week to show up as a better version of yourself for your loved ones? 
  • Close your eyes for 2 minutes, contemplate the details of you showing up a better version of yourself, notice how you would feel
  • What is one thing you need to release or add in your mind/life to make it happen? 

What are your favorite ways to nurture yourself that you can do more often?
