Rest: Reset & Refuel (GWTW92)

One of the books I have been enjoying this summer is Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang. It is a scientific exploration of why rest is important, both in the establishing and sustaining of our creative lives. In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I talk about recovery, rest, and share eight ways you can refuel your creative life.

  2. Remove the guilt of needing to take a break and detach from your work.
  3. Relax in your own way.
  4. Connect with new experiences.
  5. Rediscover and reevaluate your daily routines and work processes.
  6. Get out of town!
