The alarm blares before sunrise, jolting you out of a restless sleep.
You drag yourself out of bed to squeeze in a quick workout before rushing off to your overflowing inbox and back-to-back meetings.
You grab an energy bar in the car, trying not to spill your coffee as you weave through traffic, barely noticing the scenic views.
At your desk, you push through email after email, looking up only to see the hours fly by.
You scarf down a late lunch between conference calls, and can't remember where you just put your car keys...you.just.had.them!
If only you could stay focused & quiet the thoughts racing through your mind.
At home after work, you face chores and errands before collapsing on the couch, scanning through your phone until exhaustion takes over well before you're ready for bed.
Despite being constantly on the go, you feel restless and unfulfilled. Work is all-consuming yet unrewarding. Friends feel more like acquaintances. Your relationship lacks connection. There's an inner voice pleading "There must be more to life than this."
You dream of easing off the gas, but it's terrifying not knowing what would fill the void. The days blur into weeks lost in busywork without anything feeling truly accomplished.
You can't sustain this level of stress and speed forever. But you feel trapped on the never-ending hamster wheel of striving, longing for relief from the barrage of overwhelm and self-doubt.
If this feels painfully familiar, take heart that you're not alone.
There's another way – one that nourishes your spirit while still achieving your goals.
It wasn't long ago that I had driven myself into the ground.
My body shut down.
My mind was numb.
My soul was aching.
Debilitating fatigue, weight gain, foggy thinking, depression, anxiety...they ruled my days.
I was lonely, and barely getting by on the inside; on the outside, I kept driving hard. I looked "just fine" .
But deep down, I was falling apart.
I knew I couldn't keep up my pace and honestly, I didn't want too.
I wasn't happy and I really didn't know who I could even share that with.
After all, good girls keep a smile & don't ruffle feathers, right?
It was like I was living groundhog day everyday and my soul was trying to flag me down...
She knew something had to change.
I believe, with every cell in my body, that lasting transformation and true wellbeing involves the alchemy of Soul & Science.
I also believe that "high functioning burnout" is wayyyyy to mainstream these days...
