  2. Where should we begin when it comes to dealing with burnout in the body?
  3. Why shouldn't burnout be seen as a badge of honor?
  4. What's the importance of being present and mindful in both your personal and professional life to maintain a good work-life balance?

“The number one thing that you have to understand in all the messaging is do you have the ability to have resilience, do you have the ability to have flexibility. If you have flexibility and resilience, whatever is thrown your way you will manage. If you can't discipline and master resilience, and you can't discipline and master flexibility, you will be constantly in a state of victimhood.“
