Episode 23 - The Spoon Theory & Why It Matters

Thrive Podcast

Getting a cancer diagnosis isn’t a death sentence. Garth and Dara are here to teach you everything you need to move forward with your life, whatever challenges you’re facing.

Episode 23 - The Spoon Theory & Why It Matters

WGarth Callaghan

In this episode, Garth and Dara discuss The Spoon Theory, a theory which acknowledges we each have a certain amount of energy to spend every day. 

What do you do when your responsibilities and commitments take up too many spoons? How do you make sure you budget your energy for actives that bring you joy and happiness. What happens when you run out of energy? How do you recharge your batteries?

Time management, the need to identify your priorities and the importance of intentional living are all discussed in this episode. As always, Garth and Dara give listeners tips to help make the most of their lives.
