EP 13 | Reclaiming Summer: Balancing Work and Self-Care for a More Productive Life

Here’s what to expect from this episode:

Taking time away from work to truly decompress is challenging as a business owner. But it’s not because your business can’t survive without you…it’s because you’re wired to believe you can’t survive without the business.

As you plan for the summer months, with visions of downtime dancing in your head, it’s time to get real about the steps you need to take to actually relax. Once you understand how your mind and body are biologically meant to work, you’ll be able to rewire your brain for rest and recharge, and your workday productivity will increase as a result.

In this episode, Dr. Samantha Hiotakis discusses the importance of taking time for yourself, setting up systems that allow you to step away from your business without worrying, and recharging with activities that bring joy and spark creativity.

If you’re ready to get more done in a shorter amount of time and create space for breaks that increase your mental and physical performance, this episode is for you!

Topics covered:

  • Why most “vacations” don’t equal downtime
  • How to rest your brain to exponentially increase performance
  • The science behind focus sprints that make you more productive
  • The connection between busyness and dopamine
  • Why our bodies interpret downtime as danger (and how to override it)
  • The four systems that need to be in sync to achieve peak performance
    Why hustle isn’t all bad
