Investing in YOU is the best way to invest in your organization. A happier, more balanced person performs better at work, and has a much bigger impact. 

Keeping your mind and spirit healthy enables you to do you job better and increase your impact in your chosen career. But keeping a good balance of preserving the attention and care you need to give yourself can be challenging, especially as we’re entering holiday season, and work demands increase.

So we asked our experts for their tips to share with you. Here's what they said.

Question:  As a provider working with many hard-working and motivated people, what are some strategies or resources you’d recommend to others to keep a healthy balance year-round?

I think that maintaining a healthy work-life balance is really important, and I'm thankful that you (and the other folks) are thinking hard about how to help encourage that!

However I did downvote because this post feels sort of clickbaity. The post title says there are tips, but your post copy doesn't actually contain any. Also I think I've mentioned it before but I don't think everyone knows what EASE stands for, and it isn't explained in the post either. 

Thanks for bringing that up. The copy is in the newsletter - we have a lot of great providers, and it's hard to get the formatting right here also, so we just direct everyone to the place where all the information is. Did you take a look at the link?

Yes, I did see that the linked newsletter contains information. But that wasn't my point, I was trying to articulate that I believe the actual body copy of a post should have information that is reflective of the post title (and ideally helpful). 

It sounds like we also have differ in how we want an EA Forum post to be presented. I would expect that if one wants to help people acheive a work-life balance by giving them helpful information, then they would have the info presented in an easy-to-read way in the actual EAF post. I think that would be particularly relevant considering many of the tips in the newsletter are repetitive. Quick hack might be to toss the newsletter copy into GPT, churning out a short summary in form of bulleted list so you don't have to struggle with formatting. If that is still too much of a hassle, then maybe it would be more appropriate for your newsletter link to be a Quick Take instead of a post? 

I just really appreciate the EAF and want to encourage healthy norms.
