Time to Rejuvenate Our Hearts and Minds Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 451

Yesterday ushered in the Jewish New Year 5782. For the Bible scholars out there, you are aware that the history is colorful if not bordering on the miraculous.

We’re all living through this pandemic, and we find ourselves observing this most sacred of days once again via zoom, livestream and Facebook live. We had prepared for a return to normalcy to celebrate within our communities and families. But, like the rest of the world, we are still figuring out ways to navigate this new reality.

What have we learned? In our quest to be the best for our clients, our families, and our friends, we often forget about ourselves. What do I need? What can I do for myself and how can I improve without putting the needs of others on a back burner?

We don’t make new year resolutions on the Jewish new year but perhaps it’s time to reassess that. What can we pledge to do to make sure that we take care of ourselves, others, the larger community, and the world?

We are allowed to stop, step back, breath and rest. And return renewed and refreshed. That is the perfect resolution to come back stronger and more focused on the tasks at hand.

Take care of your mental health just as your physical well-being. We only need look at this year’s Tokyo Olympics to be reminded that taking a break for our minds and spirit can help us come back with increased vigor before coming apart at our seams.

Let’s all pledge to take the time to rejuvenate our hearts and minds and the rest will follow.
