Chris's Best Self-Care Tip
Chris maintains balance by incorporating regular time off during his working week. For example he always has Monday afternoons off. Chris says “look to be in it for a long career!” and suggests building time into your week to recharge your batteries with RENEWING activities. For him those are kayaking and going to the movies.
