When confronted with a crisis, it is natural for leaders to want to respond to the crisis immediately due to the urgency and stress. It is important that at such moments to take a small step back and take stock of the situation. And it is easy to also overlook taking care of oneself in the middle of a brewing crisis. Leaders may give up personal routines that recharge their energy and focus. Well, don’t. While you can sleep less, exercise less, or even mediate less, do not skip these routines entirely. Only by taking care of oneself, can one go on to take proper care of the crisis.
