**This is Part 6 of the Stress to Strength series**
Amidst the relentless tempo of our productivity-driven world, visionary leader Ixchel Lunar introduces a breath of fresh air. In this episode, Ixchel joins me on a thought-provoking exploration: the art of befriending time instead of futilely trying to master it.
Through the magic of simple rituals and reconnecting with our bodies, Ixchel asserts that we can break free from the constraints of time scarcity and glide into a state of flow.
This conversation transcends conventional time management strategies, delving into the cultural origins of time scarcity, naming the invisible hurdles women leaders encounter daily, and equips us with the tools to feel more satisfied using these practical, powerful shifts.
