Hi! I’m Brit. I’m a biz owner, word churner, productivity coach and creator of The Break Changer®. I’m also a recovering workaholic. I’ve been to burnout hell and back…and almost back again.
I know exactly what it’s like…
…to never know when to stop.
…to never feel like you’re enough.
…to feel slave to your inbox.
…to check email at stoplights.
…to lose your identity in your work.
…to wonder why your family’s not asking you about work.
…to do a LITTLE for a LOT of people because you don’t know how to say no.
…to fear moments where there’s nothing to do.
…to unknowingly distract yourself from the reality of your REAL life.
However, I also know what it’s like to live with more acceptance, vulnerability, awareness and freedom. I know what it’s like to bask in CREATIVE FREEDOM, both personally and professionally.
In the past six years, I’ve slowly learned how to bounce back, build healthier rhythms and change the way I see everything.
Here’s the TBC story in a nutshell:
When my husband’s job planted us in Dusseldorf, Germany, in November 2014, I decided to press pause on Brit Stueven PR for a bit. I’d never lived outside of the States, so I craved total European immersion.
In the process of being “stripped of my identity” and trying new things (teaching English, learning German, stretching my taste buds, lying in the grass, taking endless pictures of nature and then some), I rediscovered why we NEED breaks.
This “accidental workaholic rehab” was a BREAKTHROUGH.
It not only taught me how to live again, but it showed me that the way I was living + working in Denver was unknowingly flirting with the same burnout I experienced six years prior.
