"It took hitting rock bottom for me to wake up and get clarity. Everybody deserves well-being at work. At the time, I very much had the mindset you have to earn well-being. You have to work your way up and get to that place. And then maybe you can be happy and healthy. Again, this is something that many of us grew up thinking. This is just the way it is, right? Just power through and be tough. You're not supposed to be super happy at work. You're not supposed to get your needs met there. So it was quite a mindset shift." - Kelly Mackin.
