Episode 18: Preventing Burnout with Coach Wendy McCallum



Welcome to our Coaches Series! I am excited to bring you some of my favorite powerhouse coaches that will share their specialties with all of us! First up is WENDY McCALLUM, LLB, a Burnout Coach & Wellness Expert and the host of the Bite-Sized Balance Podcast.

Wendy teaches busy professionals (who are often approaching burnout and using alcohol to cope) how to reclaim time for themselves, reduce stress, build healthier habits, and increase their daily joy.

No stranger to burnout, Wendy spent 12+ years working as a lawyer, then a partner, in Calgary. As a busy litigator and mom of two young children, she struggled to find her “work-life” balance. In 2008, she left law to create a life she didn’t need to escape from.

Alcohol-free since January 2018, Wendy is also a Certified Naked Mind Alcohol Coach.

Wendy is an expert when it comes to exploring the simple steps to prevent or recover from burnout. We discuss the difference between burnout, stress and overwhelm. We also talk about the importance of completing the stress cycle and Wendy gives concrete next steps so that you can take action right away. If you are feeling pushed and pulled by circumstances in your life that lead to overdrinking, overthinking or numbing, this is the episode for you!
