After a brief hiatus for my vacation, I’m so glad to bring this episode to you with my guest Gauri Yardi, a writer and multidisciplinary creative, naturopath, and creative wellbeing coach. She creates resources for tired and burnt out creatives to help regain the energy to make their incredible art through holistic nervous system care. Gauri noticed that when professionals would discuss burnout, they would talk about mindset and sleep, but rarely about the way stress impacts our body. She’s determined to change that.
We discuss why it’s so hard to rest, how it can be downright painful sometimes when we’re used to being flooded with stimuli, and the ways we can start to care for our nervous systems using what Gauri calls the Four Pillars. Gauri’s accessible approach to nervous system care sets us on the path to healing and finding a fulfilling creative practice that avoids burnout.
