“Rest used correctly—when it’s preemptive, before the battery is at zero—is so much more powerful and beneficial that waiting until [you are] completely depleted.”


- Dallas Seavey

“If you can identify those activities and responsibilities that come with your role that truly rejuvenate you, and then work to intentionally make them more a part of your daily routine, you’ll find that you have more energy, both physically and mentally, and that will carry you throughout your day.” 

- Daniel Harkavy

Episode Show Notes

Most of us treat our minds and our bodies like we treat our phone batteries. We run hard, pushing through without taking breaks, and we wear ourselves down to zero, thinking that whatever sleep we get will be enough to recharge us to 100 percent and prepare us for the next busy day. And we think this is the best way to get things done and succeed in business and in life. But what we don’t realize is that our bodies need moments to recharge throughout the day, and stopping to take efficient, purposeful breaks will actually help us to go further, faster in our lives and leadership.

Join us as we learn from four-time Iditarod champion Dallas Seavey and wellness expert Patrick Khoo about how you can rethink recharging and start implementing practices that will set you up for success throughout your days and weeks.
