36: Why You Need a Hard Break This Week and How to Do It With Aaron Edelheit
Do you know how many times the average person touches their phone in a day? 2,617 times. A day! The American Psychological Association calls these people “constant checkers.” Is that you? Are you of the “rise and grind” mindset, day in and day out? If so, you’d better listen up. Aaron Edelheit is on the show today to share why we need a hard break in our lives each week. And he’ll be the first to tell you, he didn’t come up with the idea—it’s biblical, a Sabbath. The CEO and Founder of Mindset Capital, a private investment firm, Aaron is also the author of “The Hard Break: The Case for a 24/6 Lifestyle.” In it, he makes the case for taking one day a week off from work, email and our phones for a more productive, healthier and creative life. Doing so vastly changed his own life for the better, and so he’s out to share why we need a hard break, the benefits taking a Sabbath can have and the simple steps to doing so.
