Envision ... A Life Free from Burnout!

January 15, 20248 min read

“To fully embody and express one's true self is a source of joy, purpose, and alignment with one's core values and desires.”

- Joseph Campbell

Introduction:

Good news! You don’t have to be perfect to end the cycle of burnout and step into a life you love. You don’t have to do yoga everyday, meditate for hours, go to endless workshops, take a sabbatical, or quit your job to churn butter barefoot in the woods to end the exhaustion and be fully present in all areas of your life.

If you use The Serene Success System I share below, you can set yourself on the road to overcoming burnout and loving your life, regardless of your history.

Imagine if...

With that said, Let me paint you a picture of what life using The Serene Success System is Like... 🎨 💖

The first time I applied The Serene Success System in June 2019, I reduced my working hours by 20%, dropped 50+ pounds, eliminated my migraines, reconnected with my husband, was present with my kids, and felt more alive than at any other point in my life.

Not only that, but less than 8 months after I began implementing the system, I had an offer on the table for my dream job – 100% remote, higher pay, and WAY better culture.

It took me several years to unravel the mystery behind the shift from constant fatigue and brain fog to high energy and crystal-clear focus.

The Serene Success System is an easy-to-follow series of tools that you can use to end the burnout cycle and much more.

How would you feel if you woke up every day experiencing any of the following:

  • Feeling calmer and more generous in your interpersonal relationships

  • Thriving at both work, and home, while setting boundaries

  • Making ample time for yourself

  • Feel rested and capable of doing more

  • Be so much more present, fully aware

  • Have deeper relationships

Just imagine how AMAZING you will feel every day of your life moving forward!

Imagine the experience of sustaining your resilience being a JOY and feeling ENERGIZED, with crystal-clear steps to finally being and FEELING like the person you dream of being without taking a step down, quitting your job, or taking a sabbatical.

All that’s required is a willingness to approach burnout, resilience, and stress differently.

For example

In the whirlwind of life, I hit a wall - hard. I was stuck in the thick, suffocating fog of burnout. It wasn't just about work, although that was a big part of it. It was more than that; it was a multi-faceted burnout, a combination of career burnout, parenting exhaustion, and health fatigue.

The second pregnancy left me so injured that I was in pain 24 hours a day and wasn’t allowed to work out for over a year and a half. The doctor said, “Don’t spend too much time on your feet…not even to wash the dishes.”

I hated getting dressed, so I wrapped myself in layers of gray, shapeless maternity clothes.

Desperate for enough energy to make it through the day, I prioritized ending my burnout.

I’ve worked with therapists, health coaches, life coaches, nutritionists, doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, and I have read hundreds of books in my pursuit of health, energy, and joy.

After six years of research and effort, I created a system, The Serene Success System, to increase my energy levels, radically change my mindset, and regain my passion for my purpose and love for my life.

At 40+, I am more energized, and happier than I was in my 20s or 30s.

I wake up full of energy on a typical day without an alarm.

I dress confidently in my favorite jeans and feel good about my appearance.

I hop on the stationary bike for a gentle ride or go for a nature walk. I start the workday filled with hope and joy. I have enough energy throughout my workday and am emotionally and physically present with my family in the evenings.

I no longer feel guilty when I schedule time to take care of myself.

I can keep up with my two very energetic children and manage my career and household without ever feeling that midday crash. Dinner is a no-brainer that takes less than thirty minutes to get on the table. After dinner, I enjoy dessert with my family - every day.

I no longer struggle with burnout, feel fatigued, or have migraines, or struggle to get out of bed.

The brain fog and exhaustion are long gone, along with the extra 50 lbs. I had been carrying.

I made two specific improvements by implementing the strategy in this book:

Two, I have way more energy, focus, drive, passion, and joy than I’ve had at any point in my life.

Every aspect of my life has improved, including my career, marriage, joy in parenting, friendships, ability to have hobbies, etc. Every part of my life has benefited due to the increased health, energy, and focus I now have.

Suppose you struggle with feeling dread, disconnected, hollow, overwhelmed, stretched thin, like your life is just work, struggle, and grind.

I’ve heard women say “I felt like I lost myself”, and “work consumed my personal life”.

Perhaps you feel your life is put together on the outside and falling apart on the inside.

You’ve tried it all.

If that’s you right now, please keep reading.

I have found the joy that comes from having more focus, higher engagement, stable health, and consistent energy levels rather than feeling like I just couldn’t do it anymore.

Once you finish this book and put the concepts within it into action, you will find that shifting your focus from pursuing all of those “shoulds” to authentic alignment will turn your burnout around, and you will gain the energy, mental clarity, and joy you’ve been craving.

Solving the right problem is critical to success – this is where most people fail.

How we express our desires and letting go of our fears (and the unhealthy work behaviors that those fears drive) can dramatically impact our energy, engagement, and our ability to allow ourselves some whitespace in our lives.

By targeting our desires, we go beyond stress relief and target the core of what gives your soul the energy it needs.


🤔A Few of This Week's Clients Aha's & Insights

"Realize the negative self-talk, guilt, and shame I was inflicting on myself was a form of self-sabotage.."

"Working with Hannah has been a game-changer. Her guidance helped me realize the negative self-talk, guilt, and shame I was inflicting on myself was a form of self-sabotage I hadn't recognized. With her, I've learned to use mental rehearsals as a tool to break this pattern. I'm now cultivating the habit of mental rehearsals, which has been instrumental in reminding me that the positive feelings we've achieved can be revisited and maintained in the future."

"Being busy isn't ... a badge of honor"

"I finally realized that I've been holding onto these hang-ups – worrying too much about how things might look to others. It's not exactly about fitting in, but more about the image I'm projecting. That was a real 'aha!' moment for me.

Hannah also got me thinking differently about self-care. She pointed out that being busy isn't something to reward myself for - it's not a badge of honor. That shift in perspective has been huge and it's something I'm actively working on.

I'm gonna keep checking in with myself, keep noticing these patterns. That's really been key for me."
