182: How Unplugging from Work Will Boost Your Productivity

In This Episode:

Unplug from your job and do it often. There’s this misconception in the workforce that busier is better, and it’s simply not true. By unplugging from work, you’ll become way more productive! The truth is, you’re so much more than a worker bee. You have so much value to add to other people’s lives, which you can only give if you aren’t overworked, burnt out, and always plugged in. In this episode, I’m exploring why it’s critical for you to regularly unplug from work. I talk about the importance of taking breaks, vacations, and time away from your job, plus how doing so can produce better, higher-quality work in less time. I also share a few momentum builders to help you unplug from work mode.
