Focus on your own game. I say this a lot, especially when I play League. If you’re hung up on what your jungler is doing as a mid laner, you’re distracted from your own game. This leads to missing CS, TPing or roaming late, and ultimately not playing at your 100%. This applies to other facets of life, too. If you’re too concerned about what another colleague or department is doing, then you’re not 100% focused on your own job. Trust others to do their jobs, as that will make you the most productive.

Create rituals in the mornings and evenings. Having a set routine in those busy hours really helps make it all flow easier and helps parents stress less. We always get time together after dinner, whether it’s for playing a game or going for a walk. Knowing that the dedicated time is there amidst dinner, dishes, bath, etc. helps the child understand that some quiet time together is coming.

…A national paid leave policy that ensures women don’t need to use valuable vacation time or unpaid leave to care for family members or deliver children. By not paying for care-related leave, we continue to stigmatize women’s caring work as less important than on-the-job work, further marginalizing them.

Being truly happy is beautiful it radiates out of you. Being happy comes from being grateful and liking who you are. You’re truly only as beautiful as the person you are on the inside.

Total Acceptance, Most people confuse acceptance of a person, with acceptance of behavior. But everyone engages in unacceptable behavior, including you, including your mate. If you are withholding acceptance of your spouse until they change their behavior, then your standard for loving is based on performance. No one will totally live up to your standards all of time. So, eventually, all of your relationships will fall apart because they are based on expectations being met.

Trust yourself and don’t be afraid to fail: That’s actually advice I gave myself. I’ve learned that being afraid to fail is a construct imposed on you by others who may not trust themselves. I’ve had a few friends who did not succeed in their entrepreneurial efforts tell me to temper my expectations, but at the end of the day, I know I’ll succeed because that’s the only way I can see it.

Make sure you’re practicing self care. All of our products are a great way to treat yourself and can be easily incorporated into any skincare regime, but I have to shout out our eye massager called IRIS. It’s the perfect example of a tool that allows you to reach the ultimate level of relaxation. Being mentally centered is a great way to feel beautiful.

It is true children are resilient and can recover remarkably well from traumas or absences in their lives…but it is because this is now their foundation to build on and they quickly encapsulate the pain they have experienced. This becomes the first emotional scar tissue in their lives. On the outside children can appear alright…but that scar tissue foundation for life WILL present itself for the rest of their lives unless continual work is made to heal from it deeply.

Advocate for yourself: I never would have ended up in my first General Manager role if I hadn’t advocated for what I wanted. I vividly remember my first discussion with a new boss when I was still working in Strategy at Lexis. He said he thought I had a bright future in strategy, and I said “I want you to know that my ultimate goal is to be a general manager. I want to have P&L responsibility and run a business.
