- National Preparedness Month
- International Update Your Resume Month
What is on your September priority list?
YOU…all roads point to YOU!!
As we celebrate the American worker this Labor Day, we are celebrating ourselves. Celebrate with an investment. Labor Day is a great time to invest in your next career level.
Make yourself a priority this month.
1) Develop an individualized self-care plan
Self-care is the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health. Since many of us prioritize the needs of others over our own needs, Self–Care Awareness Month reminds us that taking care of ourselves, first and foremost, is essential. Self-care is not selfish, it allows us to take better care of others as well as our responsibilities. Since self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health, what constitutes quality self-care is different for each person. Take the time to develop an individualized self-care plan
2) Assemble emergency/disaster kits and practice your plans
Emergencies can happen at any time. National Preparedness Month encourages and reminds Americans to be prepared for disasters or emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities. Learn what emergencies or disasters are more likely to happen in your neighborhood and at what times of the year and develop a game plan to keep your family safe. The theme for 2019 is, “Prepared, Not Scared”.
3) Update your resume for your dream job
It is always a great idea to have a current record of your work experience, education, skills, and achievements. Resumes are standard employment documents that are still valuable even in our digital world. The right job opportunity can show up at any moment. An updated resume also helps you avoid anxiety and confusion if unexpected employment disaster strikes.
