Please introduce yourself and explain why Professional Wellness Month is important.
YoonJi : Hi everyone. My name is Eun Ji and I'm the director of operations at Cru Village dot org. Um Professional wellness Month is important because it raises awareness of our mental health and how it is tied to our professional lives. Um, it's also critical that we keep this in mind all year long because when you're not feeling great, it can be really hard to be productive, creative and collaborative at work.
What are some ways that you maintain your wellness?
YoonJi : I try to maintain my mental wellness by exercising regularly, going out for walks with my dog, limiting screen time on the weekends and going off camera when I'm zoom fatigued.
Do you have any advice for those struggling with work/school-life balance?
YoonJi : So I'll be the first one to admit that I struggle with maintaining work life balance at times. But I think the best thing to do is you just keep trying and you recalibrate when things are going too heavy on one side, so when your focus is deep on work for a few weeks, you know, then when it's an easier work week hop off a little bit earlier in the day to spend time with loved ones and you know, just refill your cup.
