The Risk to Rest episode
I am loving this podcast! As a creative I know the importance of rest and how it affects my work. This podcast about rest was right just what I needed to hear in order to plan a mental and physical reset. Everyone creative should listen to this one.
A great voice for the creative community and a candid look at problems we all face. Not to mention how great it is to have something so digestible and impactful coming out of Atlanta! ✨
