Some people hate their work and this is stressful. Some people like their work but are marinating in stress just the same for a variety of reasons. Join therapist Valerie Hamaker as she breaks down chronic stress and its impact on the body and how to work through your own stress to prevent illness, premature aging, and burnout.
Join Valerie and Mary, a member of her new membership community as they talk about Mary’s experience doing one-one-one coaching work around her struggles to give and give. And give. This feels noble, right? Well…with some exploration, Val and Mary realized that Mary gives because she is trying to prove herself–to everyone. And she gives because contributing to someone else’s dream is less scary than building her own. Turns out that we burn out when we cleverly distract ourselves from our true purpose…even if the distraction is a worthy cause. Lots of laughter and tears in this one. Check it out. It might feel like home to you!
In this episode Valerie and Dana explore Dana’s experience initiating a conversation with the individual who had hurt her many years ago. They explored the nature of true healing…how forgiveness is more about letting go and finding interior freedom independent of the other’s response. Inspiring!
