We all experience work stress, so let’s talk about it.

Maybe you’re feeling depleted or experiencing burnout in some way. Once that cycle starts, it can get harder to step back and revitalize.

“I got home just feeling completely exhausted. It was hard for me to even carry my bag up the stairs.”

– Kristin MacInnis

On this episode of ASHA Voices, we talk with Sarah Lockhart and Sarie Wu, the hosts of the podcast SLP Happy Hour, about how to get some of that headspace back.

They share what they’ve learned from producing a show about healthy work and personal lives for SLPs for more than two years.

Plus, we’re joined again by our featured voice on tech, Sean Sweeney. He shares how to use apps that help with mindfulness in your sessions or treatment plans.

“Our thoughts are narratives. They are stories, and often we’re telling ourselves stories that might not be in the here and now.” – Sean Sweeney

He’ll share how to use these apps in your sessions or treatment plans.
