Thanks for sticking with us. Only 3 more episodes to go! We genuinely hope you’ve taken some tools away from the show that you can implement in your life.
Something we feature on Episode 11 is a must-try for all. It’s called Forest Therapy and it’s the new wave of de-stressing. In Japan, the suicide rate dropped dramatically after doctors started prescribing it. You can hear more about it in our visit to Qii House in Lorne.
Another great topic this week is burnout and how to avoid it. At the speed of life that we’re living, burnout is a definite possibility for all of us. We all need to make a conscious effort to slow down… me included!
Tune in today, Saturday November 23rd at 12pm on Channel 9 and Sunday December 1st On Nine Life.
Hope you enjoy the show!
On this weeks show…
AFL Executive Darren Birch was the sort of person who would just go and go until one day he realised that he needed to take a step back. Darren didn’t want to let anyone down, so he pushed himself to the point where he suffered from burnout. After doing some research, Darren found Palladium Private, a wellness retreat on the sunshine coast that helped him get his life back on track.
This week, resident psychologist Chris Mackey speaks to us about burnout. Burnout happens when the demands on us are greater than the resources we have to deal with them. It’s important to understand your own stress signature, so you can pick up on when your stress symptoms are building and make sure we don’t let ourselves become overwhelmed with burnout.

Renowned chef Nathan Toleman is well known for his iconic Melbourne Café’s Higher Ground Top Paddock and The Kettle Black.
