Insights from Dr. Chase Feiger on the Importance of Physical Activity for Mental Recharge

September 8, 2023

In today’s fast-paced business world, a growing body of research suggests that the continual demands on our attention can lead to burnout and decreased productivity. But it’s not just about taking a break; it’s about the quality of the breaks we take.
