"The other side of energy is recovery. It is important to realize that it's great to have high energy but to have high energy, you have to recover. You need to recover emotionally and mentally." -Phil Dozois [18:39]

“Whether you work out in the morning, at noon, or later in the day, I think working out is an essential habit. How often do you work out? I think everybody has to decide what that is for them. But there's no question that the number one lever for longevity and being healthier longer is working out. Be active and do things that you love.” -Phil Dozois [24:46]
