Sadly we did not manage to sit down with Rachael O’Meara at Pause Fest this year but lucky for us she gave up some of her time to jump on Skype and have a chat with Sam. The concept of ‘Pausing’ is very close to Rachael’s heart. Working for Google in the bustle of Silicon Valley, she understands the pressures modern work life puts on us as humans and has developed a set of practices to help navigate it.

Her book Pause (a very fitting name) outlines how to create intentional shifts in behaviour to help you lead a more meaningful and satisfying life. It teaches you how to harness the power of giving yourself a break! This is something that we spend a lot of time thinking about here in the studio, so it was fantastic to dive in and find out more from Rachael…
