In this episode, I am joined by Taylor Elyse Morrison, a self-care and personal development expert and founder of Inner Workout. She shared her journey as a workaholic and how she had to build self-care skills to not get burned out. Taylor believes the impetus for her journey came from within but noted that both nature and nurture played a role in her ambition and how society's expectations of her were extra pressures.

 

Show notes: 

00:02:25 Practice self-care and balance.

00:07:16 Listen and respond lovingly.

00:12:05 Flexible structure for success.

00:17:41 Set clear goals and accountability.

00:23:34 Connect with others for support.

00:29:05 Slow down and enjoy life.

 

More About Taylor:

headshot of Taylor Elyse MorrisonTaylor Elyse Morrison turned being bad at self-care—and being firmly convinced of every human’s potential—into a career. She’s the founder of media company Inner Workout, and the author of a book by the same name. Recently named one of Fortune’s 10 Innovators Shaping the Future of Health, Taylor is tired of aspirational 'wellness as usual.' Instead, she builds businesses, content, and experiences that make well-being and personal development more accessible. You're just as likely to see Taylor facilitating a workshop at a Fortune 100 as you are to see her talking about TikTok and body image with a high school class. Wherever she goes, Taylor's sure to use her coaching, mindfulness, and movement training to meet people where they're at and offer actionable steps towards creating a world without burnout.

In this episode, I am joined by Emma Jack, physiotherapist and coach, to discuss her journey from burnout to breakthrough. Emma was overwhelmed and unsatisfied with her career path until a panic attack in 2016 led her to reflect and make a change. Emma decided to take a step back and focus on herself to build a more sustainable, fulfilling career. This is her story and her advice for other healthcare practitioners.

 

Show notes: 

 

00:05:17 Check in with yourself.

00:12:17 Fill yourself up first, serve others.

00:17:05 Take time for yourself.

00:26:28 Our worth is not outcomes.

00:30:49 Take care of yourself.

00:40:22 Lean into your true self.

00:40:40 Stay curious and evolve.

 

More About Emma:

 

Emma is a sport and orthopedic physiotherapist and owns her own practice Press Play  Physiotherapy and Pilates in London, Ontario, Canada. She holds a Masters of Physiotherapy as well  as a Masters of Clinical Science, has her Sport Physiotherapy Diploma, is a Fellow of the Academy of  Manual and Manipulative Physical Therapy and is a lead therapist with the Canadian National  Women’s Hockey Team. 

Sounds pretty cool, right? While those accomplishments and credentials do bring a sense of pride,  Emma also recognizes that many of those things are ultimately what left her feeling intense anxiety,  chronic stress, overwhelm and burnt out. Her credentials may span two lines on a business card, but  in recent years Emma has totally transformed her practice and life in order to ensure that her  accomplishments no longer define her. Now, much of her time is spent working as a Co-Active  coach helping other clinicians show up fully for their lives and careers in a way that feels authentic,  sustainable and most importantly, fun!
