So You’re Crazy-Busy [Podcast S08E06]

6 Ways to Reclaim Your Free Time

Welcome to Season 8, Episode 6 of the This Is Your Life podcast. In this episode, Michele Cushatt and I discuss how to reclaim much-needed free time when you feel like you have none.

In his excellent book on margin, Richard Swenson, M.D. describes margin like this: “Margin is the space between our load and our limits. It is the gap between rest and exhaustion, the space between breathing freely and suffocating.” In today’s episode, we give you 6 ways to build more margin into your life.
