It’s that time of year for many of us. We’re trying to hit our year end goals, it’s cold and flu season, the days are darker and colder, and for people like my retail clients and me, it’s just plain busy. So how do you push yourself and not suffer the consequences? I share exactly how to do that in today’s episode.

I pushed myself to the brink of disaster.

I woke up Christmas morning exhausted, sick, and fifteen pounds heavier than I was two months before. I was at the tail end of a seven-week marathon of ninety-hour workweeks and my body and mind were paying the price.

By Christmas morning, I was mentally and physically fatigued. I had a horrible cold that lasted far too long, and my pants didn’t fit very well. I was an absolute mess.

Sometimes you have to push. That is a fact of life. There are times that call for extra effort, extra focus, and extra hours. But when you do, it doesn’t mean that your body has to end up in shambles.

Today I share 11 things I learned during that rough time and what I am doing differently now.

Listen to this episode: 


It is our best work that God wants, not the dregs of our exhaustion. I think he must prefer quality to quantity.

    Great podcast, Matt! Getting rid of all refined sugars and taking high quality supplements is vital. My husband and I cut out all caffeine a long time ago. 🙂

      Thanks Luba!

      Good for you…I did once in college. Now I stick to my morning tea and occasional afternoon tea 🙂
