Meeting Professionals - don’t forget about YOU!

Posted by Kristi Harbers on Mon, Jun 3, 2013

Last year Event Coordinator was deemed one of the most stressful jobs you could have, and I touched upon how they affect the different generations. One of the best ways to not allow yourself to get completely stressed out is to have a little “you” time. Also, by taking some time for yourself studies have shown that you are more productive and have more energy. Here are few examples that may inspire you to find new ways to de-stress.

  • Work it out. Physical activity can really help relieve stress. Joining a gym and actually going, going out for a walk, catching an exercise video on demand, anything that gets you moving will help you stop thinking about whatever else is going on and just focus on the movements. Plus by including more physical activity into your routine, you’ll start to get more energy, which is always helpful when you’re working those long hours onsite!
  • Join a club. Whether it’s a book club, cooking club or a ski club, getting together with other people to discuss and meet about similar interests can be lots of fun. It’s easy to find different clubs or people with similar interests on sites like www.meetup.com. You can search your local area to find what you like and will give you an opportunity to meet new people.
  • Take a vacation! Go away for a full week or even just a Tropical Vacationcouple days. Just some time away from the norm can help take your mind off things. Hop in the car and get away. A three day or four day weekend away from your email and the office will help keep you from burning out and realign / refocus you on what needs to be done when you get back.

Whether you just completed a big project, it’s your birthday or simply because it’s a Tuesday, why not reward yourself instead of everyone else?

Personally I like to go to the gym and workout right after work where I don’t think about anything except making sure I have the right form. And I’m also part of a ski club where I get together with friends on the weekend for ski trips to mountains in New York and Vermont.

How do you reward yourself with some “you” time?

Considering a career change? Here’s my story:

Posted by Justina Treventi on Thu, Jan 3, 2013

Have you ever felt like continuing to perform the job you are currently in until you retire is just something you can’t imagine? About ten years ago I felt exactly like that. jtI had already racked up twenty-two years of service towards retirement from the federal government, I was making a very nice living and I had oodles of time off. Yet somehow it just wasn’t where I wanted to be.

After some soul searching, discussions with family and friends, and financial analysis, I made the decision to change careers. I’m the kind of person who, once a decision has been made, its full steam ahead. So, instead of going to school part time and continuing to work, I just resigned from my job and enrolled in a local community college full time.
