The Power Hour

The life of a scientist is pretty busy. Between labs, meetings, conferences and association involvement it seems like there is never enough time. I often wonder am I doing enough, but then I realize I don’t have to be so hard on myself. I deserve a break. Work is important. Life is important. Finding the balance is key! Many of us understand the struggle and this is where the Power Hour comes in! The ‘Power’ Hour is a chance for you to focus your energy on something exciting and give yourself a break.

I like to use my Power Hour for something that is truly for me. I encourage you to use your Power Hour to do something that you are planning to do soon. Sometimes taking a little time out of your day to do something exciting can give you that energy boost and satisfaction that you are doing enough.

Come start this Power Hour challenge with me! No matter if you are a woman in science, student, professional, or in a transitional phase, I challenge you to take advantage of your Power Hour. Celebrate where you are today. Sometimes as scientists we get wrapped up in our daily laboratory routines, lectures and meetings and realize; “Where did the day go?”

I hope you incorporate the Power Hour into your daily schedule and that it helps you achieve your goals. If you try it, comment below and tell me what you think.
