Episode 38 - Working with focus and discipline

· A study from Florida State University found that productivity and performance of employees at work are at their peak during uninterrupted 90-minute intervals.

· The American Psychological Association reports that employees are more productive on days where they exercise before work. The study also found that physically active employees were less likely to develop job burnout and depression.
