JAN 14: Elizabeth Emens’ Life Admin & Dr. Bryan Robinson’s #CHILL
Today’s show turns the invisible visible. Our guests expose the hidden costs of the invisible, often unpaid, and thankless labor you do everyday, and share how to create more sustaining relationships and communication skills while creating more fun time for yourself.
Even with technology (and often because of it) aiding us, most of us are drowning in an endless sea of paperwork, bills, texts, and e-mails, all tedious tasks that become overwhelming if we don’t stay on top of them. With Life Admin: How I Learned to Do Less, Do Better, and Live More, author Elizabeth Emens offers simple ways to reduce the time and effort we spend on these mundane daily details of life. Elizabeth is a legal scholar and an Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law at Columbia University.
Next, Psychotherapist Dr. Bryan Robinson says “If you are a workaholic, overachiever, or perfectionist, you have permission to stop working and #CHILL”. His new book, #CHILL: Turn Off Your Job and Turn On Your Life, explores how to get out of the trap of working non-stop and achieve a healthy work/life balance. Dr. Robinson is a psychotherapist and Professor Emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He has authored thirty nonfiction books and written for over one-hundred professional journals and magazines.
