 Shake It Off: 7 Simple Strategies to Discharge Stress + Beat Burnout

Do you ever feel like you’re on the brink of burnout, unable to carry one more ounce of tension in your body or mind before you break? Most of us keep taking on one stress after another, not realizing the cumulative effect it has on our body and mind, making us more prone to things like burnout.

What if we could learn to effectively (and simply) discharge the stress that keeps building up in our bodies, thereby boosting our immune system and reducing our risk of burnout? We have the power to change our physiology in order to change our psychology. In this session, you’ll discover how.

  • Identify specific steps you can take to reduce tension in your body and retrain your mind, so you can be more focused and grounded
