Ep. 196 - What Gets You Up In The Morning

I started this podcast asking the team, what gets you up in the morning? And understanding, at the core of it, why do we do this. The episode evolved into one of my favourite conversations of late, where we explored our own personal dopamine and serotonin balances in the day, the differences in introverts and extroverts, and what the latest strategies we’re tinkering with in our days to optimise mental health, performance, general well-being.
