Before you ask.. yes I hate that Amazon has used my name. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I was a stressed AF consultant rushing from one client deadline to the next. Grabbing food when I could from the proverbial snack drawer and waking up at 5:01 am to get in a workout before the day spiraled.
Believe it or not, I have been at the client site (let's be real, several client sites & several nights) until 2 am only to be back at work the next morning before that 9 am meeting. I know what it is like to be in back-to-back (to back-to-back) calls without even a minute to refill my water or run to the bathroom. The exhaustion and crankiness followed by a weekend (if I didn't have to sign on to recover) to recover before doing it all over again.
5 years later, I am now able to navigate the corporate world a little better and have found ways to juggle zoom calls, stakeholder & leadership demands all while teaching yoga/ HIIT classes and starting Alexa Hanshaw LLC!
I still work for one of the Big 4 so you could say I practice what I preach.
Once I figured out how to manage my stress without having to quit my job, I knew that I wanted to share this with those in the same place I was- people who are running themselves ragged in the never-ending cycle between stress, exhaustion, burnout, then shut down (aka vacation) & repeat.
