Burned Out? This Neurocoach Once Was Too with Keshawn Hughes

We’ve all got goals, but there is nothing worse than feeling stuck in pursuit of them. Even harder? Avoiding burnout in today’s society, where “success” becomes the synonym to busy. In today’s episode of Lift U Up: Inspiring Health Stories, our guest Keshawn Hughes talks about it all: how you can recognize the signs of burnout, how you can avoid it, and the resources available to beat it. The Neurocoach also shares how burnout has impacted her life, and how it eventually led to finding her passion of helping others help themselves.
