One of my clients this week told me that he finds himself completely exhausted by the end of the day. Can you relate?
Are you working so hard that you lose track of your well-being?
When we started diving deeper into his exhaustion he realized that he started the morning taking mindful breaks and felt able to manage his anxiety about getting his work done.
But when I asked, “What time do you start to get more frazzled or stressed?” he didn’t know.
There was a blank spot in his awareness and all he knew was that he arrived home from work totally spent, which impacts his relationship with his wife, kids and his health.
It’s very common to not know where your day starts to speed up, but to end up overwhelmed or exhausted! But this is not sustainable!
My client and I had a heart to heart about the risk of strokes and heart attacks for men, and how changing his work habits is actually about keeping him alive!! We want you alive too!
This is why I brought Pierre Khawand to today’s Man Alive Podcast. Pierre is a facilitator, author and the creator of Perfect Day Method. He helps people go from overload to effectiveness at work. People become more productive and happier!
In our conversation we discussed:
- The power of being clear about WHAT you’re doing and WHY you’re doing it
- How to reduce interruptions and distractions at work
- The key to ending a work day feeling more accomplished and less burned out
- Becoming more effective by understanding the Accomplishment, Collaboration and Play zones
- How being more mindful at work allows for more productivity and happiness
Here’s to you being more productive while also relaxed and healthy!
Even men at the top of their game find themselves wanting more from life. Man Alive is the resource for men who want more meaning, a bigger impact, unshakable confidence, a hotter sex life, more money, deeper love, solid friendships or a powerful legacy.
