Productivity, Potential, and Holistic Thriving
The focus on productivity is important for certain tasks at certain times, but it’s only one part of a holistic expression of our potential.

Trauma, culture and internalized ideologies can prime us toward a dysfunctional relationship with productivity, and thus with our understanding of our true potential. Jennifer explores these themes and shares resources for change in this article.
