Got Burnout? 3 Tips to Help You Bounce Back


Jules Hunt, founder of Om & The City, shares simple ways to boost well-being after dealing with chronic stress.

The thing about the hustle is that it can lead to a grind. Earlier this year the World Health Organization officially recognized burnout as an occupational syndrome resulting from chronic workplace stress and leading to energy depletion, increased detachment, and reduced productivity. While you can’t always control what happens at work, you can deploy a few principles to get your life force moving and feel present again. Here, the Live Be Yoga ambassadors sat down with Jules Hunt, founder of Om & The City and yoga and mindfulness teacher, for three simple tips to boost overall well-being.

Master Warrior 1 Pose (Plus Four Adaptions)

Warrior Pose I Virabhadra = a hero or warrior from the Mahabharata asana = pose

Virabhadrasana I

Move with Ease

Stand with one foot a comfortable distance forward, and your back foot at a slight angle to the front (45 degrees or less). Your hips and shoulders face forward. On an inhalation, bend your front knee, placing your chest slightly ahead of your pelvis as you arch your back, and lift your arms. On an exhalation, straighten your front knee and lower your arms, moving back to the starting position.

KEEP YOUR CHIN LEVEL

So you avoid compression in your neck.

BRING YOUR CHEST SLIGHTLY PAST YOUR PELVIS

So you avoid compression in your low back.

KEEP YOUR KNEE OVER YOUR ANKLE

Make sure to protect your joints; don’t let your knee move past your ankle.

SIBO Made Simple | EP 22 | How to Advocate for Yourself, Find Real Deal Practitioners, and Become the CEO of Your Gut Health with Shivan Sarna

Back by popular demand is another powerful SIBO survivor story. In today’s episode, Shivan Sarna is sharing her experience of uncovering her root causes, from Lyme disease to mold exposure, and how she became the patient expert she is today.

Shivan is the founder of SIBO SOS, where she hosts monthly master classes to support others on their journey to understand, treat, and manage IBS, SIBO, and other digestive issues. Relying on her past as a yoga teacher and 20 years of experience hosting live TV, Shivan’s superpower is asking the questions SIBO patients have and then making that information easily understood and actionable.

For those of you who have been asking for a patients’ perspective, more information on underlying causes, how to vet practitioners to build your SIBO medical team, and navigate a SIBO diet as a vegetarian, this episode is for you.

A quick taste of what we’ll cover:

  • Mold and Lyme exposure and what that looks like as a root cause for SIBO
  • What it’s like to be a “canary” constantly reacting to everything in your environment
  • We talk about Shivan’s SIBO misdiagnosis and whether or not to believe your breath test results
  • The importance of uncovering underlying causes
  • The biggest mistakes people make when trying to eradicate SIBO
  • What products are essentials for your medicine cabinet and pantry for dealing with SIBO symptoms
  • How to navigate a SIBO diet as a vegetarian
  • And so much more…
