Feel The Force: Cultivating Your Energy To Build Resilience

A hot topic that is being thrown around the corporate arena, the entrepreneurial space, and even in schools lately, is being resilient.

The trouble is, most people don’t have the bandwidth to deal with even the slightest of knockbacks. They lack the energy needed to deal with everyday life.

So in this episode, we chat about how by connecting with your body, you can cultivate the energy needed to build resilience at work and at home.
