We all have rhythms and cycles, but most of us are not living by the ones that nature uses to guide our bodies. Now most of us have heard of circadian rhythms that you’ll be hearing more about from me, and of course as a woman we have our menses.
Today I’m talking about a completely different kind of rhythm that my guest, Pilar Gerasimo, says you may have never heard of. Hacking this biological rhythm can transform your experience of your work life, your day, your happiness, and give you more satisfaction, focus, and concentration.
Pilar is not only a very close colleague but also a dear friend with whom I love to discuss science, health politics, and being an aligned woman. We talk a lot about how to not just strive, but thrive in ourselves. Pilar’s life mission is to help people make sense of the confusing overabundance of information that can often turn into a cacophony.
