The disciplined pursuit of less

Do you always feel busy, but, at the same time, unproductive? Are the things you’re doing day-to-day aligned with your values and goals? It may seem that by trying to do it all, you can have it all. But when we spread ourselves too thin, we often find that the things we are spending most of our time on aren’t actually the most important things in our lives. On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher discusses how to discover and invest in what’s essential in our lives with Greg McKeown, best-selling author, speaker, and leading voice on essentialism.

Are you constantly multi-tasking or thinking about what’s next? Mindfulness is the key to quieting the mind and enhancing focus.

Taming technology

Technology improves everyday life in so many ways. But do those benefits overshadow the negative impacts that technology use has on how we act, think, and connect with each other?

Good tech

Technology can make life more convenient, connected, and efficient. But with all that it gives us, could it also be taking something away?

Bouncing back

Life is full of challenges and setbacks. Resilience is what helps us bounce back from them. And just like a muscle in the body, resilience can grow stronger through practice.

Mind your mind

Hiding or 'covering' mental illness is not uncommon, especially in the workplace. How can we create a workplace culture that can empower people to take care of their mental health in the same way we encourage them to take care of their physical health? On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher and Dr. Christine Moutier, the Chief Medical Officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, discuss mental health in the workplace.

Connecting to purpose

Our constantly connected society gives us greater access to what we want when we want it. But it also comes with a price—the stronger our wifi connection, the less connected we become to ourselves and our purpose. On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher discusses purpose and intention with Jonathan Fields, award-winning writer and founder of the Good Life Project and colleague Mike Kearney, Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory partner and host of Resilient podcast series.

When well-being goes wild

When it comes to well-being, we all fall off the tracks every once and a while. And that’s ok because well-being is not a zero-sum game. On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher asks Drs. Chris and Kara Mohr—specialists in nutrition and fitness who also happen to be a married couple—to share personal stories on how they manage (and sometimes mismanage) their busy lives with juggling family, work, and their own well-being.
