In this episode, Rachel is joined by Dr Jamie Wyllie for another Ask the Frog episode

We chat about what happens when work starts to seep into every aspect of our lives. How to create a ‘third space’ between work and home so that we get ourselves out of work mode to be fully present in parent / partner / friend mode. 

We think about what we can do to stop ourselves obsessing about unfinished work and how perhaps the ‘inbox to zero’ mindset can be unhelpful when this just might not be possible. 

Finally, we talk about how taking control over aspects of our time such as doing our best work at our best time and scheduling in work catch up time that is under our control just might help us to feel freer and get a better quality of life at home.
