What We Discuss in this Episode:

  • We are more connected than ever. Even outside of the pandemic, this leads to more stress and anxiety than ever before.
  • We give ourselves the worst pain because the worry and anxiety about the future is worse than the pain of the moment.
  • It starts with acknowledging the problem. We have to admit that we are obsessed with controlling the future.
  • The work-life balance is a myth. The minute you can take work home, you are able to work from home.
  • Don’t respond to or check emails after a certain time.
  • Plan your time off. Whether it’s spending time with family, or reading a book, or watching a movie, but don’t leave it unstructured because you will quickly fall back into glancing at your email or opening your laptop.
  • Instead of using your cell phone as an alarm, spend the $10 and buy a small alarm clock. If your phone is next to your bed, you will check it.
