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 5:01am 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 2am only to be back at work the next morning before that 9am 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.
SNACK at work
Food is so important to keeping your energy up & thinking clearly. I am here to help make sure you have healthy foods around that nourish your wellness especially during your busy workdays. I am all too familiar with the back to back (to back) Zoom or Teams meetings with barely anytime to use the restroom let alone eat! That is where this list of healthy & delicious food comes in. You will find everything you should have in your desk snack drawer (or these days easily accessible in your pantry) so you are never stuck without food all day ever again! This list includes various snacks that are both healthy and filling for those crazy days when you just don’t have the time!
SLEEP like a baby
Sleep is so key to your health, yet it is one of the first things we let slip when we get busy! Interestingly enough, stress and sleep are cyclical and deeply connected. When your body is in a chronic state of stress it thinks you are perpetually in danger. To react, your adrenalin and cortisol levels elevate and your brain is constantly sending messages preparing your body for an imminent attack.
No wonder you have a hard time falling asleep or wake up frequently in the middle of the night your body is waiting for an attack! There are a few simple and easy adjustments you can make to your routine to enhance your sleep and intern decrease some of your chronic stress! With my sleep audio starter pack I give you simple tips to incorporate into your nightly routine that will positively impact your quality of sleep plus a special bonus to make falling asleep a snap!
MOVE at your time
The practice of yoga has taught me to be more intentional about how I wrap up my day after work. It's easy to just get back home and pour a glass of wine, sit on the couch and watch Bachelorette. Be more present with your family and furry baby after work with over 75 HIIT and Yoga Videos for as little as $30 a month for unlimited content and access to live classes.
"Alexa is such a welcoming and encouraging coach. I love that she covers everything from yoga and
strength training classes, to nutritional workshops and holistic wellness tips. After working with her, I've
noticed myself having more energy throughout the day... and I've been falling asleep better at night! I highly
recommend Alexa for anyone that wants to build and maintain better wellness habits,
or get personal support in pursuing their fitness goals"
