    96: Hacks On How To Rest Well

    Justin and Sean sit down and talk about hacks on how to practically rest and take time off well. Too many youth workers do not know how to rest well, which then leads to burn out. Some don’t know what to do when they are off. Some don’t know how to set themselves or their teams up for success when they want to take time off. They talk about all of these different things on resting well in this episode.

Great content

As someone who is jumping back into the youth ministry world, I was looking for podcasts to listen to outside of the “big hitters.” This one has been a great resource so far, but my only concern (which doesn’t impact the star rating) is the volume. I have to really crank my volume to hear the podcast in my car or Bluetooth speaker.
