Carl joins me today to discuss health, fitness, and wellness for busy people. He recounts his life as a litigation lawyer and describes how he was able to maintain a habit of exercising despite his hectic court life. He highlights why self-care isn’t selfish and how prioritizing your health can benefit the people around you. Carl also underscores the relationship between performing better at work and cultivating wellness and points out the impact that a daily, 20-minute exercise can have.
