If you dread Mondays starting on Sunday, you might not be in the right career. Meghan Reid explains the mental health impacts of career dissatisfaction and how that manifests in us.  She also details exactly how she approaches career counseling with a client who has requested her help. Dr. Laura and Meghan address the necessity of identifying core values and having an ability to live them as being a key factor in career satisfaction. She shares important advice on achieving and maintaining your work-life wellness. This episode contains invaluable resources, insight, and advice for anyone struggling with work or with keeping work from consuming their lives.

“To me, it’s all about integrity. If you say you value work-life balance, but then your actions don’t align with that, like you’re sending emails as a boss at 11pm, it doesn’t bode well for the rest of the organization. So I think it’s identifying your values and then clarifying: what does it look like to live and work in alignment with those values?”  – Meghan Reid
