About This Episode

In this episode, we’re talking about burnout and energy management with Mary Brooks,  the owner of Sustainable Nutrition and the Fuel Better Formula. She has a Master’s Degree in Nutrition and is a certified Integrative Nutrition Coach. She has more than 28 years of experience in health coaching and helps people get to the root cause of low energy, fatigue, and burnout.

This year, especially, has been a challenge for all of us. Learning to work at home, having kids home all day while attempting remote school, feeding them and the family, and not to mention the stress of keeping your family safe during the pandemic — it’s been a lot to juggle emotionally and physically. Mary’s own burnout experience led to health complications which led her to make radical changes in her life. Today, she wants to help you do just that.

1. Body before business.

One of the best things you can do for your body is prioritize your health in the morning. Before you turn on the “work switch,” take some time for yourself – anything from a short meditation to a brisk walk or a full blown workout. The important thing is that you give yourself some time before you enter into the frenzy of the day. This will help you get started with a healthy mindset, which will have a positive, long-term effect on your body.

2. Be aware of what’s happening around you when you’re experiencing anxiety.

It’s important to stop and focus on your environment and the context of what’s causing you to be anxious. Then, look at the truth of the situation and ask “Am I having a normal reaction to this?” Take a moment, pause, and breathe. By stopping in the moment and understanding what’s going on, you take control of the situation instead of allowing your anxiety to control you.

3. Reducing anxiety starts with taking care of the basics of health.

Drink more water. Get more sunlight. Eat the right things at the right time of day (for example, protein in the morning and carbs in the afternoon). And get more sleep! You’ll be amazed at how much you can reduce anxiety and mental fatigue by simply doing the common sense basics we’ve known most of our lives.
