We often overlook one of the most important relationships we have in our life. The relationship with ourselves. We can be our own worst critic, but we need to remember that perfection shouldn’t be the goal. In fact, when we learn to accept our weaknesses, we can create more opportunities to grow and embrace the awesome human inside each of us.

On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher talks with Nataly Kogan, emotional fitness expert, founder and CEO of Happier, and author of “The Awesome Human Project: Break Free from Daily Burnout, Struggle Less, and Thrive More in Work and Life”, about how to look at ourselves and others through the lens of our awesome humanity by strengthening five emotional fitness skills - acceptance, gratitude, self-care, intentional kindness and compassion, and the bigger why.

The way we treat others is rooted in how we treat ourselves. And so, reconnecting to our own awesome humanness is also going to help us to see more of the awesome humanity in each other. And that’s the power of connection, which is something we need so much right now.
