This episode is an opportunity to take time out for yourself and to pick up a few healthy habits to incorporate into your day.

Omar de Silva founded business school The Plato Project to foster entrepreneurship with some good philosophies. He recommends mindfulness in the short term and over longer periods to spot damaging trends.

Debra Longin had a traumatic experience that highlighted the dissatisfaction in her stressful career. Finding the same traits in founders, she established MAW Creative to encourage more mindfulness, art and wellbeing.
