Tony Wrighton, creator and host of the top-rated Zestology podcast, has a lot on his plate. In addition to podcasting, Tony is a personal development author and presenter, NLP linguistic skills expert, and sportscaster on the Sky Sports Network in the U.K. With such an exhaustive resume, it’s a wonder that he has any time to do anything but work. Luckily he has learned some techniques to increase his energy, and wants to share them with you.
After contracting a mystery virus in 2014 that sidelined him from his career for three months with fatigue, Tony decided to focus on improving energy, vitality, and motivation in himself and others. He realized that one of the main reasons that people experience malaise and fatigue comes from always being switched-on, and as a result, never fully operating at a peak level. His suggestion: Switch Off.
