This week on the podcast, Beth interviews her colleague, Laurie Ellington, about a topic we can all relate to experiencing daily: STRESS!  Are you totally stressed out?  Learn more about the science behind mind-body medicine in this week's podcast!

With over 23 years of experience in coaching, training, consulting, leadership, facilitation, and mind/body medicine Laurie is co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Zero Point Leadership and is among the pioneers who recognize that we change the world by harnessing the power of the connection between the heart and mind. Combining findings from modern neuroscience, mind-body research, stress resilience, mindfulness, and flow she helps individuals, teams and organizations change the way they think, feel, and show up in the world. 

Laurie also serves as a Mentor Coach and Adjunct Faculty for the Health and Wellness Coaching Program and as Professional Faculty for Professional and Continuing Education (PCE) at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH).

Numerous health conditions and chronic diseases have been linked to chronic stress and “burnout” has now been categorized as an official work-related medical condition by the World Health Organization. Daily, chronic stress can cause a variety of symptoms and affect your overall well-being and quality of life. Common symptoms of chronic stress include irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia, digestive problems, skin issues, blood sugar dysregulation, weight gain/loss and more.

In fact, managing your stress could be one the single most important factors to consider for optimal wellness!  The good news is that with a few simple lifestyle strategies, you CAN navigate life’s stressful situations and become more resilient and healthier in the process.

  • The difference between acute and chronic stress
  • Common symptoms that your stress levels are out of control
  • The neuroscience behind stress and the evidence of mind-body medicine
  • The connection between the vagus nerve and stress
