    • Give yourself permission to rest and rechargeSchedule rest, disconnect from tech, and prioritize self-care to be your best self and boost productivity

      It's crucial to prioritize rest and self-care, especially during busy weeks. Just like Kate Cocker, who's been training extensively, it's essential to give yourself permission to rest and recharge. Don't let guilt hold you back from booking in some downtime. Remember, taking care of yourself allows you to show up as your best self the next day. So, make sure to schedule rest, disconnect from technology if needed, and enjoy the process. Remember, you have the power to prioritize your well-being and can promise yourself a more productive and fulfilling week ahead.

    #95 Why You Need More Rest with Claudia Hammond

    Warning: some people might find this podcast seriously restful.

    If that sounds appealing, it should do, because rest is something we all need to prioritise. So says this week’s guest, Claudia Hammond, who argues that being busy isn’t a badge of honour – and taking time out is definitely not lazy. We examine the science behind our struggles to relax and she shares some brilliant insights on our attitudes to downtime, the top 10 activities most likely to help us switch off, and what the benefits are for our health, wellbeing and productivity.

    If you need a reminder of why rest is so important – and permission to do it, without feeling guilty – this is it. So put your feet up (or head out for a walk, if you find that more restful), and listen in.
