How to Expand Time & Increase Happiness | Cassie Holmes

What does it mean to be time-poor? 

We've all heard the old phrase, "time is money," usually in the context of work and productivity. But, time isn’t just about money, it’s about happiness, health, and life. How we use it and feel like we have enough of it, is everything. Time is precious and, it is also our one nonrenewable resource. When a dollar is spent, you can earn another. When a day is gone, it’s gone for life.

So, how can we move forward, making sure that we live more intentionally and spend our time wisely so we won't have regrets in the end? My guest today, Cassie Holmes, has done incredible research on making the most of the world's most precious resource, time, and I'm excited to tackle these big questions and ideas in this important and timely conversation with her today. 

Her new book, Happier Hour: How to Beat Distraction, Expand Your Time, and Focus on What Matters Most , gives readers the blueprint to reframing their time and overcoming time poverty. And in our chat today, you'll hear us dive deeper into this notion of having too much to do and too little time, how to distinguish between what matters and what doesn't when it comes to our time, and what to consider and do if you want to lead a more intentional, happier life — which I'm sure that's all of us.

    I find these weekly podcasts to be super inspirational, they seem to always motivate me to look at my purpose. Matt not only brings in his personal life experiences but he delivers them in such a way that they are relatable.

    @yames check this podcast out its a great one


    The part where he mentions that he wants to be adopted by a more functional family even at 45 yrs really hits home. Really delineates how no matter how old and independent you are, you still need love and support.
