How Downtime Improves Your Life

"Work hard." and "Hustle & grind." are just some of the slang words associated with success in our culture.

Of course, it's impossible to have any type of success without hours and hours of hard work.

Stress vs. rest might be the one time where the concept of balance is an excellent way to understand the delicate relationship between the two.

Balance is unique in helping you learn what you need to do to obtain your values.

The purpose of this podcast is to help you understand the reasons for time off and downtime. It is not always (nor should it be) an extended period of time doing harmful activities to your body, it should time away from your central goals and principle value in life for the specific intent of getting closer to reaching those goals.


Here Is What We Covered

  • Why the purpose of your life has everything to do with your goals and values, and why it's something that you need to explicitly know to fully leverage rest and downtime.
  • Why your mind and body need both times of stress and times of rest to help create the ideal life. Stress and rest exist in a symbiotic relationship with one another, and one of the keys you need to discover for yourself is how much and to what degree you need to focus on one and ignore the other.
  • The Life By Design definition of rest and how it's entirely and utterly different from what we've been taught to do.
  • How self-awareness plays a vital role in using rest to it's full advantage.
  • Strategies on how to create a rest and recovery routine that will work well for you.
