EPISODE 20 | Burn out, Hormones and Creating Balance
I’m getting pretty vulnerable in this episode. We’re covering a topic that I think is super common but not many entrepreneurs are willing to go there, especially those in the health and wellness field – because we’re “supposed” to know better .
I invited Jenn Pike to join me to talk about all things burnout, hormones and creating so-called balance. She was the perfect person to talk to about this because I hired her to help me address my own burnout a couple of years ago (I talk more about that here) and she has helped hundreds of other women do the same in her business.
It’s kind of funny isn’t it? As health practitioners we have ALL this information on how to optimize health, but we’re often our own worst client. Brushing off self-care, movement and nutrition to eek out more time to build our business. I know because I’ve been there. When I realized I couldn’t continue with the way I was going I got in touch with Jenn to set me straight and give me some practical solutions.
Not only is it the long hours but as entrepreneurs in a client-focused role, we don’t recognize that what we put out and that we can digest all of what is coming to us. The energy and baggage of our clients needs to be dealt with and it’s super common to take it on as your own. This is a fast track to burnout!
Jenn and I discuss some of the strategies she used with me when I was experiencing burnout and adrenal fatigue that you can start to implement in your own life right away.
We talk about how to take your own advice and treat yourself just as you would your clients, or your children if you are a parent. Reminding ourselves once in a while that we’re human and it’s totally ok (re: necessary) to take a break and put our health at the top of the priority list.
