Self-Care: 8 key tips to help you invest in yourself.

Kevin Guest, USANA Chairman and CEO and author of All the Right Reasons, published an article about self-care in Training magazine on Aug. 4, 2020.

Take Time for Self-Care During the Pandemic explains why it’s so important to practice self-care.

“Today’s pressure for profits and power is as unrelenting as the problems they produce,” Guest writes. “So much so that it may be more important than ever to reset, rebalance, and reconnect with values that got you to the level of success you enjoy today.

Good self-care practices are an effective way of keeping yourself firing on all cylinders. That’s important for all of the teams I lead. I need them to fire on all cylinders, and they want to do the same because that brings more satisfaction to them as they accomplish their goals.

If you’re feeling down and out, give extra attention to your self-care. You deserve the time, attention, and rewards that will bring.
