In this episode, we dive deep into the topic of burnout and how the body responds to stress. Get ready to learn about the autonomic nervous system, the fight or flight response, and the role of the “vagal brake” in managing stress.


1. Understanding the Fight or Flight Response: We explore the body’s natural response to stress and the release of cortisol and adrenaline. Learn how chronic stress can lead to burnout and the importance of regulating the body’s stress response.

2. The Power of the Vagal Brake: Discover how the vagus nerve and the vagal brake act as your body’s stress regulator. Find out how to engage your vagal break to promote relaxation and balance, even in high-stress situations.

3. Building a Sustainable Business (without Burnout!): We discuss how aligning your business with your personality type and harnessing your natural inclinations can lead to long-term success. By understanding your triggers and responses, you can eliminate busy work and focus on strategies tailored to your unique needs.

Once you understand how it all works together with your archetype in the burnout cycle, you’ll be able to harness the power to take control of your stress, even if past experiences shaped how you’ve previously responded.

We work on navigating your nervous system during the first few weeks of my 12-week Burnout Recovery Program. If you find it difficult to manage your stress levels and are tired of being at the mercy of your trigger responses, let’s find a better way.
