Do you have trouble setting boundaries? Do you, like so many, feel like you’re experiencing burnout? If so, you’re not going to want to miss today’s powerful conversation. Trista is joined by an old friend from her days as a Miami Heat dancer, Janet Jones. The two discuss defining and addressing burnout, somatic experiencing, surge capacity, and setting and respecting boundaries. We learn that one of the best ways to avoid burnout is play; shutting out people’s access to you, being completely present, and playing, whether that’s getting outside or having a dance party in your room! And, speaking of dance, we learn how Janet balances her role as a mother and also as the founder of VXN, a dance fitness brand focused on improving the physical & mental wellness of women that now has 500 instructors in 8 countries. Janet opens up about her experience with burnout and ways in which we can work to prevent it or heal if it happens. Trista also shares her own scary experience with her body reaching its limits on a family trip. You never know what’s going on with people behind the scenes which is why it’s so, so important to always be kind and to strive to be better!
