Preventing (and Rebounding From) Burnout as a Wellness Professional

Today, we have Carissa Floyd on The Being Whole podcast. Carissa is passionate about connecting experiences! She knows what it’s like to feel disconnected physically, relationally, and spiritually. The theme of connection is present in all of her endeavors. Carissa believes that connection is ours to come home to and that our journey of coming back to ourselves can be joyful and simple, and it’s way more fun in community! You can find Carissa around town in New Braunfels, TX teaching Pilates at her studio downtown, meeting other wellness pros through her new organization, The New Braunfels Wellness Collective, going out to eat with her amazing husband, and taking her son out for ice cream.

Did you know that I offer corporate training for businesses and organizations? I love getting to do lunch and learns or workshops! If you, or someone you know, is looking to strengthen a team with communication skills, burnout prevention, conflict management, and resolution, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me on Instagram @DrCassandraLeClair with the word CORPORATE to learn more about how we can work together and bring growth to the spaces you need help with.

1- It takes practice to tune into your body and learn to listen to what it needs, and in turn, follow through to provide love and care for yourself in the right way. Give yourself grace in knowing that each day may look different in what your body needs from you.
2-You may find yourself not loving the structure that you’ve put into place within your business. There are times and moments of clarity that force you to take a hard look at what is working and feeling good to you as a business owner and what you wish you could do without. But in those moments, you have the opportunity to forge a new path that feels more aligned with what your soul craves.
3-We are all growing together, and we all have our own struggles. The more we understand that we are, in fact, a collective, the better experiences we will have.
4-It’s never too late to connect with your body and inspire change in how you feel within your own skin. Lean into healers trained to help you heal and feel connected because you are worthy of feeling great in your body as you learn to live your best life.


Today, on the Being Whole podcast, we kick off season three with my sweet friend Tiffany Williams! Tiffany, owner of Aud & El Apothecary, believes that creating an environment, internally and externally, that is soothing and calming should be a priority in all our lives. She believes that our mind, body, home and soul are the core of who we are and that it is essential we nurture those sacred pillars of life. Specializing in mindfulness self-care Tiffany teaches about the benefits of mindfulness and how to bring self-care into your everyday life. At Aud & El you will find products to help ease you into a softer way of life, such as our monthly candle subscription Light Box, but you will also find community, support, ideas and suggestions all designed to bring you peace and comfort.

I was recently on Tiffany’s podcast called Self Care Simplified, discussing the beauty of understanding ourselves! You can listen to that episode via the link below:

Also, I wanted to just let you know that if you’ve been finding boundaries and conflict difficult in your relationships, but wish that it would be more connected and understanding, I’d love to work with you in a one-on-one format to help you strengthen your relationships and communication. You can DM me on Instagram @DrCassandraLeclair or email me at so we can discuss what that would look like for you.


  1. ADHD has an unfortunate stigma attached to it. Not everyone is bouncing off the walls out of control. Some are introverted and calm, with too many tabs open.
  2. Life circumstances can almost always justify your overwhelm, so the possibility of ADHD isn’t the first thought for many.
  3. Sometimes, forcing yourself to make decisions slowly, when possible, can be a pivotal change in how you run your business or live your life.
  4. Being open about your challenges with those you regularly interact with, like a boss or people close to you, can help bring understanding and an opportunity to see that there may be a way to meet in the middle between what you can realistically do and what others expect from you.
  5. Hone in on what you’re good at and delegate anything else you can, because there is no shame in asking for help. You won’t be able to do everything, even everything that OTHERS can do easily.
  6. When noticing someone else being a bit harsh or unkind, learning to come at it with a curious point of view and wondering what is going on behind the scenes can help you humanize others without defining them by their decisions.
