Stopping burnout before it stops you
Lower Stress, Prevent Burnout & Boost Your Resilience
If you are exhausted or struggling to find time at work or home 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 your own self-care toolkit to have more calm, joy and clarity on the job and in your life. JumpStart each day with powerful and doable activities that optimize your well-being. Discover how to reset, recalibrate with easy to implement tips, tools and healthy coping strategies to make your busy 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!
