Life is about living wide, not just long. We are more than our to do lists, yet we often get bogged down in tasks, chores, and errands. Exhausted at the end of the day, we numb out of the life we claim to love, and can’t figure out why we feel burned out. Using research-based habit change strategies, we will tackle the three dimensions of Sustainable Productivity: Health & Fitness, Mental Well-being, and Environmental Surroundings. By making small adjustments in health, happiness, and habitat, we can work on creating and maintaining a life you don’t need to escape.
