EP 177-How to Navigate Mid Life Burnout with Intentionality Towards Our Health With Angel Shannon

Today’s episode is a deep dive into closing the gap between the things we “know” about what we need to do for our health and actually doing it. This discussion is specific to the concept of burnout, which is both on the rise in those ages 40-60 and affects far more women than men. I’m joined by a nurse practitioner and founder of Seva Health and the Seva Institute Angel V. Shannon to dive into what do we do if we find ourselves in mid-life, burnt out, and asking “what’s next?”

Angel V. Shannon MS, CRNP is a personal development keynote speaker, board-certified nurse practitioner, and founder of Seva Health and The Seva Institute. Her inspiring presentations are drawn from over two decades of clinical practice and a lifetime study of integrative health and mind-body medicine. Her engaging workshops and seminars teach people how to intentionally create a foundation of specific health practices that will help them achieve better health and continuous personal improvement in every area of their lives.

Angel doesn't just talk about mind-body medicine, she lives it. As a student of T’ai Chi Chuan and having received her teaching certification in Hatha yoga, she is a pioneer in weaving both wisdom traditions into her clinical and private coaching practice. In 2019, she founded the Seva Institute to bring these ancient contemplative practices into the corporate environment by leading corporate workshops in mindfulness-based stress reduction to help participants overcome work-related stress, develop inner resilience and foster a culture of embodied leadership.

A graduate of the University of Maryland and a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Angel’s talks, teaching, and clinical practice are always one part science and one part storytelling as she shares the inspiring stories of the many people she's helped successfully lose weight, reverse chronic illnesses and rescue their mental health to reach peak performance in their lives. In addition to managing her busy clinical and coaching practice, Angel is the host of Healthy House Calls With Angel, a podcast filled with tips, tools, and strategies to live longer and live better with lifestyle medicine.
