Talking about the Stress Cycle and Burnout
with Dr. Megan Melo
Who is not stressed out during the pandemic? We will be talking all about it with Dr. Megan Melo. Dr. Melo’s philosophy on burnout is that we have to attend to both our bodies AND our brains. This is a powerful way for people to start their journey of healing and intentional self-care.
We will be talking all about "The Stress Cycle," as described in Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily Nagoski Ph.D., and Amelia Nagoski DMA. It's a simple, intentional technique of using the body to come out of stress and come into relaxation mode through brief bits of exercise, deep breathing, laughter, crying, etc.
