Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast talks about the importance of ‘shutting off your brain’ on occasion to achieve better mental health and clarity. He shares various ways to disconnect in order to reconnect and run your business more effectively. 


  • Entrepreneurs are a completely different breed of individuals.
  • Oftentimes, they’re thinking about the business and how to make it better and easier for their customers.
  • Entrepreneurs and business owners have a difficult time disconnecting mentally. 
  • Taking a mental break is crucial for clarity and health.
  • The subconscious mind is incredibly powerful. It works hand in hand with your conscious mind. 
  • Jason recommends disconnecting the conscious and engaging your subconscious to achieve mental relaxation.  
  • Get involved in an activity requiring immersion. For Jason, physical activity or sports works best.
  • Other options include playing video games, watching a movie or reading a book.
  • To ensure a good night’s sleep, use blue light filters, read a ‘light’ book or meditate.
  • Success in business is not the end goal – it’s who you become in the process. 
  • It’s a process so enjoy the journey and figure out what works best for you.
