Too busy to take a break? Science suggests you're too busy to NOT take a break!


Almost all the leaders I talk with lately feel overloaded, distracted, and exhausted. If that sounds like you, I feel you! When I have to juggle many different tasks at the same time, I often end up feeling that way, too.

While it's not easy, it's possible to get more prioritization, focus, and rest in your work life. Science can guide us to better choices.

So this month we're sharing strategies to take real, effective breaks. In particular, science--and therefore Happy Brain Science--recommends mindfulness as a uniquely helpful approach.

As always, I'm truly grateful you subscribe to this newsletter, and I'd love to hear whatever is on your mind. Please feel free to hit reply and let me know; your email will come straight to me.
