049: Eliminate Emotional Exhaustion and Burnout with Michel Bordeau

Do you feel exhausted at the end of the day? How often? Have you ever considered that your brain might not be built for the demands engineering leaders put on it?

And do you know the #1 stressor on your body and nervous system?

In this episode, meet CEO, Psychotherapist, and Functional Nutrition Coach, Michel Bordeau. He is creator of the Loyalty 2 Self program where he has helped hundreds of leaders avoid burnout and be strong in body and mind.

He shares his own emotional discovery of being on the autistic spectrum, which he did not know until his adult years, and how that realization changed his life as a therapist and coach.

Michel shows us how the body is a system of systems, and how we create the out-of-balance conditions of self-inflicted emotional exhaustion and burnout.

Plus, we cover some of the most actionable tips to recovery you will find anywhere.

So press play and let’s chat…because the truth is your burn-OUT is really a burn-IN!
