    170 | Balancing Productivity & Self-Care: Knowing When to Do the Minimum vs. the Maximum

    170 | Balancing Productivity & Self-Care: Knowing When to Do the Minimum vs. the Maximum

    In episode 170 of Life Coach BFF Show, host Heather Pettey dives into the importance of understanding when to do the minimum versus the maximum, especially for midlife women navigating the challenges of raising teens or empty nesting. 
    She explains that sometimes, the best thing we can do is embrace the minimum - taking a break, saying no, and prioritizing self-care. Other times, going the extra mile and doing the maximum can lead to incredible rewards, whether in our careers or personal passions.
    The key is to avoid feeling guilty about not always being maximally productive, and instead, give ourselves permission to ebb and flow between the minimum and the maximum as needed. Heather encourages listeners to tune into their own unique needs and rhythms, and practice self-compassion along the way.
    Key Takeaways:- There is power in knowing when to do the minimum vs. the maximum- Embracing the minimum can be crucial for self-care, rest, and restoration- Doing the maximum can pay off when you have the energy and motivation- Finding the right balance is about tuning into your unique needs and rhythms
    Actionable Tips:1. Recognize the importance of rest and relaxation, and schedule intentional breaks.2. Reframe your mindset around productivity - define it in a way that works for you.3. Identify the root cause of your guilt, whether it's internal or external pressure.
