PRINTCast: The PRINT Podcast Studio is a curated collection of cutting-edge podcasts we love about design, creativity, branding and further subjects afield. Soon, we’ll have a dedicated digital listening room. In the meantime, we present Hurry Slowly—which host Jocelyn K. Glei describes as “a podcast about pacing yourself, where I explore how you can find more calm, comfort and clarity through the simple act of slowing down.”

The latest episode: “A Call For Rest & Tenderness”

Here’s more from Glei:

Most of us are drained. The “surge capacity” we called on early in the crisis is now depleted.

What’s more, there was already a trend toward burnout in the U.S. before 2020 ratcheted our stress through the roof. From my perspective, that means it’s high time to consider adopting a new attitude toward what it means to be “productive.” One where rest and tenderness are as much of a priority as speed and efficiency.

Key takeaways from this meditation:

  • How resilience relates to acceptance, even in the face of uncertainty

  • Why now is the perfect time to re-examine our ideas about productivity

  • How to move through your workday with more tenderness.
