Did you know the average age people give up on their dream career is just 30?  Maybe a dream is just that, so let’s get real now. Maybe working in a job that you love could be more realistic for you. 

In the latest Work In Progress article “How to Define Your Dream Job” there are some questions you can ask yourself about what the work you love might look like.

Taking the time to understand what you love in various aspects of your work means that defining your dream job will be much more achievable.  

Find your space in nature.  Shinrin-yoku, or "forest bathing," is the Japanese practice of just being in nature.  Even if you're adhering to social distancing right now, staying totally cooped up indoors will do nothing for your mental health.  Urban areas are still blessed with parks that can give you a healthy distance from people, and even a quick stroll around the block can reduce stress levels. 

At the very least, open a window. 

Find out more about forest-bathing and how you might incorporate this into your life.  

Our current affairs seem more turbulent than ever and if 2020 has already overwhelmed you, you're not alone.  “Within the communities and team that I work with, I am seeing conflicting values, motivations, desires and a lack of understanding about differing needs,” says Clarity Coach Amy Yeung. 

Amy shared why taking a more empathetic and compassionate approach towards ourselves and others may improve not only our world view but life closer to home.
