Today I’m chatting with the author of the upcoming book Laziness Does Not Exist, Dr. Devon Price.
Most of us think of ourselves as inherently lazy – but what if we are just tapped out? Burnt out? Overworked? Overwhelmed? And what if laziness is actually just… normal? Protective? Even… helpful? There is almost always a pretty legit reason we *feel lazy* whether it be mental health struggles, not having the support we need, or just… being burnt out.
Did you know that the 40 hour work week is too long? And studies show that the max work time you can really “get” out of people is 3-4 hours a day??? YEA!!!
Listen to this one.

Topaz Trauma Healing. Often, anxiety, depression, body disconnection, substance use, and negative self beliefs can actually be trauma responses, and a sign that there is trauma to process in your healing journey.
If you are interested in exploring trauma work, Caroline Pegram is a SLC based licensed clinical social worker and somatic practitioner – for anyone new to the concept, somatic work is about accessing healing by feeling and getting back into the body, and is very effective for addressing trauma.
