#441: How to Beat Mental Exhaustion

Sarah and Amanda speak with Dr. Alice Boyes, a former clinical psychologist and author of The Healthy Mind Toolkit, about how to beat mental exhaustion. Dr. Boyes details:
-what the “step-up approach” is—and how to use it to your advantage;
-why replicating your current systems might be better (and easier!) than creating a new system;
-how the adage, “Too busy chasing cows to build a fence,” applies to us all;
-the importance of pleasurable routines in our daily lives; and,
-the “secret resource” for emotional support.
