“Taking care of yourself is taking care of business.” — Brian Buffini

Americans and Canadians may work hard, but their resistance to taking time off puts many on the fast-track to burnout. In fact, the estimated cost of work-related stress is $300 billion. In this episode, Brian Buffini explains why rest is essential to boosting productivity and achieving lasting success. Using powerful statistics, he delves into why workers avoid taking time off, the benefits of rest and why humans are not designed to work constantly. Learn how to work more like the dogs of the Iditarod Race, why operating at a constant peak state reduces productivity and how to incorporate more rest into your day, week and year. After you listen to this episode, you’ll want to plan time off to recharge.
