This Broke Me Open!

Every now and then, a book or podcast conversation comes along that changes the trajectory of your life. In Oct 2021, I stumbled upon a podcast interview that completely transformed my perspective and provided the missing piece to my burnout recovery puzzle. It was Brené Brown’s “Unlocking Us” episode featuring Drs. Emily and Amelia Nagoski, authors of the groundbreaking book Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle. Their insights and research hit home and broke me open, each story and narrative was a near mirror image of my lived experience. They provided a viable path forward that led me to (finally) getting the support I needed

What I Learned:

  1. Understanding Burnout: Burnout isn’t just feeling tired; it’s emotional exhaustion that profoundly affects our bodies. The Nagoski sisters explore the science behind it, helping us reclaim agency over our well-being.

  2. Completing the Stress Cycle: Did you know emotions have a beginning, middle, and end? Burnout occurs when we get stuck in an emotion without completing the cycle. They share practical ways to break free and find balance.

Since then, I’ve become a stress expert, certified in Somatic Stress Release and Trauma-Informed Somatic Mindfulness. Along with Dr. Hansen and Emm Gryner (coach and multi-award-winning recording artist), we’ve curated the best of what we know to create our 8-week Summer of Vitality program.

Together, we’ll shift from burnout to balance and bliss.
