How to Support Your Body Throughout Burnout with Kelly Agnew

Episode 013: Show Notes

I hope you're ready for an amazing episode because DAMN does this episode teach A LOT. For Episode 013 I invited Kelly Agnew onto the show to talk about her four pillars to help support your body throughout burnout. 

As entrepreneurs, let alone entrepreneurs living with mental health conditions, we're destined to hit burnout once or twice (or ten times!) in our career. When Kelly brought this topic to me, it couldn't have been at a better time. This past November I was smack dab in the middle of possibly the worst burnout of my entrepreneurial career. So clearly, the topic of how to COMBAT burning out and get back to a positive healthy lifestyle, was something I really wanted to share with you all!

And let me tell you, if you're one of the fortunate souls who hasn't felt burn out before... take Kelly's four pillars to heart because you do not want to enter that nasty place. 

So what are these pillars that Kelly and I talk about?

The 4 Pillars to Support Your Body Throughout Burnout

  1. Diet / Nutrition
  2. Supplementation
  3. Lifestyle
  4. Mindset

We dive deep into these pillars so you're going to want to dedicate a good hour to listening to this episode! 

You're going to hear a little about our personal experiences with burnout, why you shouldn't be giving 100% of yourself at work, vitamins you should totally be taking when you're stressed or burnt out, and oh my goodness so much more. Let's just say that I've given up coffee after having this conversation.... well for the most part 😉

We even cover what a Naturopath (ND) is and how they can help you differently than a Medical Doctor (MD), how it's actually a biological response when you start craving junk food when you're stressed, and why protein and healthy fats are essential for every meal to avoid burning out. 

And what's a Shining From The Shadows episode without a little meditation, stress management talk and obviously we mention the power of the best free resource... breathing!
