Imperfect Productivity with Sarah Steckler

Are you and your to do list in a relationship that could best be described as, “It’s complicated?” Or perhaps you’re in a serious LTR…? As recovering perfectionists, it’s so easy for us to fall into the trap of equating our worthiness with how much stuff we can get done in a day. I mean, what could be more rewarding than checking tasks off our lists, right??

The answer?

Soooo much! Life is so much bigger than our to do list, and we are worth so much more than our productivity. With us to shed light on this topic is Sarah Steckler, Mindfulness Practitioner, Certified Health & Wellness Coach, and Productivity Strategist. Sarah is here to show us how less is more when it comes to productivity by teaching us how to infuse feel-good mindfulness strategies into our daily lives -- and our to do lists. 📝
