You are NOT the only person that feels like they just can’t keep up.

Sure, it seems like everyone else is able to keep on going, but nobody is really capable of sustaining the break-neck pace our culture sells us caffeine to keep up with - without something falling apart. You've been working hard for a long time, and it's only giving you more to do.

So if you want to have a vibrant career, health and relationships all at the same time in our modern economy, pushing harder won't get you there. Instead, those that thrive know you must give yourself permission to rest to have your best.

This is the part where you are rolling your eyes right? Because of course you want to rest, but when are you supposed to have the time for that, huh? Don't worry, Karlee outlines 3 doable ways that busy folks use to have more time to rest on the spot.

Permission to rest is something only you can grant yourself. Even if you haven’t finished that project yet, or still have to-dos to cross off, or even if you feel like you don’t deserve it. (Heads up - we talk about why you many NEVER feel like you deserve more rest in this episode, do don't wait for that to happen, ha!)

Here’s the truth: When we take moments to rest and digest information around us, we think better, we make better decisions, and we perform at a higher level.

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Oh my gosh, I need more rest than I am getting,” then this is the episode for you.
