Over 66% of professionals are experiencing burnout symptoms (Gallup, 2019)..
.. and this statistic is the same in today’s remote work reality (Monster, 2020).
72% of people who have daily stress and anxiety say it interferes with their lives, mentioning work performance and personal relationships as the first aspects to take a hit. (Anxiety and Depression Association of America)
Isn’t that crazy?
Here is what's crazier: The internet is flooded with tips and strategies on stress management, time management, and self-care.
On a quick google search, you will find (literally) 700 million entries on these topics.
Most strategies offered are targeting dealing with stress when it happens, and/or avoiding stressful situations altogether.
So, what is missing?
First, tips and strategies are positioned as something ELSE you should add to your to-do list. Who has time for that?
“How can I find time to meditate every day when I can't even find time to sleep?!”
Second, although tips and strategies can be useful, they are not efficient on their own.
They don't address WHY you are getting (and staying) in the busy-ness, daily stress, and burnout cycle.
They don’t address how to minimize the impact of stressful situations, so they don’t cause damage in other parts of your life.
They don't address how you can switch from having no time to sleep to executing daily self-care practices.
They just tell you to “do it”.
And it's not working. 92% of people who set goals and start new habits can’t sustain them and give up.
It's not because they are bad performers. It’s because setting goals and “knowing what to do” is not the way to change behaviors. If it was, we would all be in perfect shape and perfectly productive.
But we are not.
Because that is not how the brain works.
That is why I created Productivity 2.0 – a program that is designed to help you build productive habits by setting the conditions for productivity, both internal and external, so that you can enjoy sustainable performance AND more time and energy for what matters to you, WITHOUT the constant stress.
When I am not coaching, I like to enjoy a black espresso and a good laugh with friends, practice improv comedy, and spend time with my husband and two dogs in the beautiful Canary Islands that we call home. 🌴
