This podcast is the most listen podcast this season… ALREADY!
So here’s a question. When is the last time you did nothing? We talk with tech expert Alita Harvey-Rodriguez from Milk It Academy about the impact technology is having on our health and the concept she’s created in ‘slowing down to speed up’. Alita has ideas on how to be more efficient and has some simple techniques to pull ourselves out of the swirl of phones, devices and technology. This is an episode for everybody to sit down and enjoy.
In this episode you will learn;
2:15 Meet Alita. She has a passion of how to take us out of the daily grind and look at things holistically to build amazing foundations and how we can get creative in our workspace to solve business problems. We love her!
