Take the Work-Life Pledge for December

With the holiday season upon us, it's challenging to be work-life fit. As a gift to yourself, can you find time for a mini-focus on your work-life mix? Maybe taking the Johns Hopkins Work-Life Pledge and choosing a self-care strategy will help you manage stress. If December seems too crazy for an intentional focus on yourself, set your intention for January.

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 choose from a menu of strategies to customize and commit to a 30-day action plan. One, two, or more strategies is a great place to start.

The purpose of the pledge 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. Enhanced social support will be introduced for those who are interested in discussing the tips and resources shared each week.
