When you’re working a stressful, time-consuming, seemingly all-encompassing job, it’s hard to take a step back and be introspective. It’s easier to just go with your flow, do what you’ve always done and stay in your routine. But to grow both personally and professionally, self-reflection is a prerequisite. How do you get started?
I started using Shine when I started my new position a little over six months ago. I was grappling with a new position in a (somewhat) different field, feeling lost and didn’t know where to begin. Shine is a website and app that provides great articles on self-empowerment and improvement in both the article and listicle format. You can also sign up to receive daily text messages or messages from the site through their app and can choose what time to receive them. Waking up at 5:45 a.m. is not wonderful but when you go to shut your alarm off and the first thing you see is an article about reclaiming your power, it’s not as painful.
