ep 193 cover.png

Let's talk about stress, Awesomes. Dealing with stressors - both big and small - are a part of life, but sometimes we find ourselves trapped in a stress cycle which, over time, leads to being burned out. This week, Kelly joins Meg to talk about a life-changing book they read from Emily and Amelia Nagoski called Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle. This episode is a must-listen if you want to find ways to teach your body how to recover from stress so that you can get back into an awesome groove.
