Kat’s experience in making a change by breaking away from the chains of her desk is definitely an eye opener when it comes to the importance of recharging, balancing life and work during the work day, and the way our brains can make us think our productivity is top-notch when, in reality, we could be doing better if we just took a bit of time for ourselves.
