Editor’s note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ — “twidge.”). Below is this week’s edition; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

This weekend, Simone Biles returned to gymnastics, and it’s like she never left.

After a two-year break, Biles returned to the Olympic-qualifying event, the US Classic. She received the highest score in the competition by a wide margin.

In 2021, Biles withdrew from the Olympic team finals, taking time to care for herself and recover from years of high-stress competition.

Her return speaks to the power of self-care, and taking a break. When you’re taking care of yourself, chances are your best work shines through.

So whether you’re training for the next Olympics or just looking for a new opportunity, don’t forget to do so at your own pace.
