In this episode of Positively Psyched, we learn that the new normal is not necessarily natural.
It appears that we are getting less and less rest. We have been known to devalue rest for the sake of staying up late to binge watch our favorite shows, knowing we have to get up early for work or to get the kids off to school the following morning. Too often rest becomes an afterthought and we simply don’t get enough of it.
Today’s guest, Dr. Alex Pang, is the author of Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less. I was first introduced to him through Calm, one of my favorite apps. In our conversation, we discuss the importance of taking rest seriously and recognizing when we need to get more. Rest empowers us to be more successful, more proficient and ultimately it enables us to get more done.
