Heading For Burnout, Breakdown, Meltdown Or A Wipeout?

Stress depletes our energy and our vitality. It robs us of quality living, relationships and health. Stress and energy are tied together, one affects the other. Relaxation diffuses and disempowers the influence of stress in our lives, and fills us with more energy to create, to live and to be. For too long now, in our high-tech, low-touch world, I’ve seen the effects of burnout and overdoing. I’ve experienced and witnessed the damaging, even deadly effects of stress on countless individuals and families. Something’s gotta give. Take the “Less Stress, More Joy” Quiz to see if stress is impacting your life negatively and if you might be heading toward burnout, a meltdown or a wipeout.
