Friday may be Casual Day at your office, but you may want to think twice about it – especially if you’re trying to show the boss you’ve got what it takes. Felicia Walker Brown says that’s especially true for women in traditionally male-dominated fields.
I think confidence is really key for women, because sometimes you’re going into an area of the workforce where you may not see many other women. So I think it’s very important that in your mind’s eye you envision yourself there & you see yourself there & you feel as if you belong, even if no one else looks like you. So I think the confidence is really important & it starts on the inside, but sometimes you can use a little outside boost as well to get your confidence going.
Felicia writes for a new campaign called Make a Power Move, & says while looking & feeling good are no substitute for knowing your industry, it is still important to look the part, & project confidence.
Recent studies suggest that 70% of Americans are overweight, & almost 1/3 of us have heart disease. Nutritionist Rich Roll is trying to change all that.
What I want to get across is that health and wellness is not an elitist ideal. Maximum health is accessible to everybody. It doesn’t have to take up all of your time, it doesn’t have to be inconvenient and it doesn’t have to break your bank.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, Rich says the key is adding more activity & eating more fruits & veggies – but he also says it doesn’t cost you more to walk. & fresh produce can actually be cheaper than all the pre-packaged stuff. He writes more in his book The Plantpower Way.
