Take the Work-Life Pledge for September

It won't be long before summer activities end and fall is in full swing with students from kindergarten to college returning to school. If this and other changes cause you stress, maybe taking the Johns Hopkins Work-Life Pledge for September will help you implement some strategies that rebalance your work-life fit for a smoother transition.

The Work-Life Pledge is an opportunity for faculty and staff to choose from best practices in five categories known to improve work-life effectiveness. Individuals who take the pledge select from a menu of strategies to customize and commit to a 30-day action plan. The purpose is to create a pathway of support for daily choices that positively impact one's work-life fit, and to build a community of champions for work-life culture at Johns Hopkins.

The pledge includes strategies in the categories of self-care, managing technology, and work with a work-life perspective that might fit or enhance your goals for the summer. Join your colleagues who are working to improve their work-life progress. The pledge runs on a monthly basis. The next pledge period starts Sept. 1.
