Mental Health Series: Thrive Habits for Purpose-Driven Professionals 
What do Danica Patrick, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, and Oprah Winfrey all have in common? They understand self-care and healthy habits provide much needed energy for their ground-breaking work. Too often passionate leaders put in long hours, lots of brain work and “on” time to further the mission without making time to rest and allow the body and mind to rejuvenate. Consider the giving nature of our team in combination with the intensity certain seasons of the year bring, you have a recipe for burnout and exhaustion. There is hope. You can build energy and resilience through intentional habits.
