JumpStart Self-care

Stopping burnout before it stops you

Learn how to create a personalized self-care toolkit

If you are exhausted or struggling to find time to better care for yourself, JumpStart helps you build a self-care practice that puts you on your to-do list. Learn how to create a personalized self-care toolkit to lower stress, prevent burnout and boost your resilience. JumpStart each day with powerful self-care activities that optimize your well-being. Discover how to create more calm, clarity and simplicity with easy to implement tips, tools and healthy coping strategies to make your day better.

Consider this a gift to yourself, you deserve it. 

Research shows that those who spend just 15 minutes a day engaging in any type of healthy activity that generates a feeling of joy increases oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin (the happy hormones) in the brain, which allows us to feel better. And, sources of joy differ person to person. Gardening may be pleasurable for one, and a chore for another. JumpStart Self-care helps you identify activities that bring you calm and make you smile to reduce stress and burnout, building your internal resources. Get started today!
