Like A Mountain Stream

Nature Aids Burnout Recovery

Burnout Recovery

When doing research for my book “De-Stress Your Life Turn Chaos Into Calm”  http://bit.ly/DeStressbook I found such good evidence about the health benefits of nature exposure that I now consider time in nature an important part of burnout recovery.

De-Stress Your Life: Turn Chaos Into Calm has a chapter about how nature aids burnout recovery

Burnout is a hit-the-rock-bottom-experience of life. It’s painful and destructive. Many of us don’t realize we are burned out until we look back with better perspective months or even years later. I tell a bit of my burnout story on the about page of this website. https://deborahrankinrd.com/about-deborah-rankin/

I want to help you learn to build the habits of a calm, low-stress life so you don’t ever hit rock bottom like I did. Take my free burnout quiz and see what habits might put you at risk of wearing out physically, emotionally, and socially. https://deborahrankinrd.com/get-the-quiz-here/
