Do you thrive under pressure? Are you constantly firing on all cylinders and performing at capacity?
The world, society, work, cultures and even ourselves demand a high level of effort and performance. We live in a fast-paced world and in order to keep up we need to maintain a dynamic, energetic and vigorous lifestyle. What happens when we don’t prioritise recovery?
It’s obvious we can still be successful in both life and work, even if we do smoke, drink, have excess weight, take drugs and have a negative mindset.
