Episode 9 - Why you should take time out for yourself, before you crash.
Ok, it's a little dramatic, but in reality how long should you go supporting and helping others - before you decide to spend time on yourself? Beginning with a quest set by our conversation in Ep8 with Mel Elliott to find out why we should focus on setting time aside for ourselves, in this episode we end up crashing planes, meditating and bringing it all together in a good life.
Some of the stuff in there is:
Why we should plan in some time to ourselves
What could motivate us to plan in some downtime
