Stop Feeling So Tired All The Time: 8 hacks for working women that really work!

download my free guide:

We are working all the time. And not always in the classical sense: going to an office, burning late hours etc.

Instead, we use most of our waking hours to do things that feel like work. Whether it’s calls taken from the car, scheduling people to do other work, taking care of our parents, or organizing new projects.

There is always something to be done. And we never feel like we are ever completely finished.

That’s why we don’t know how to truly rest, how to savor the peace that comes with recharging and having a life outside work.

So how do we find time to rest? And how do we maximize that rest period without being unsettled about what we’ve left undone?

In this episode, I reveal how you can build tolerance for “the undone”. You’ll discover how to use your rest time to properly recover yourself without fretting over what is still waiting for you…

Listen in…
