The real issue is complex, has lots of layers and angles, which is why we haven’t been able to find a one minute Reels on “how to heal burnout” that truly heals.
I’ve intentionally crafted this 6-week journey, with a signature 3-layer method you can refer back to for years, to meet you where you are in an overly full life, guide you through to more room to breathe, with science and research to back me up, empathy and personal experiences to share, all in a way that doesn’t pretend our solutions are easy yet confidently champions:
I first started teaching how to “overcome overwhelm” in 2013. You can hear more of my story, including my rock bottom moment due to burnout and a big aha in Italy, in the video above.
Over the last decade, I’ve taught tens of thousands of students on this topic through speaking, courses, and communities. As an entrepreneur, with business as my greatest cause of burnout, I focused on helping business owners. However, I realized the truest teaching had nothing to do with what you do for work and applies to every unique life situation in those bullets above, whether it’s juggling aging parents or aggressive volunteering pressure from the PTA. I started to craft a new path, a 3-part method, that welcomes every single one of us.
The Healing Burnout course is a decade of lived experience, and the first teaching for all of us.
Let me share my decade of wisdom to help you get to healing faster.
The textbook definition of burnout includes three key components: exhaustion, cynicism, and inefficiency. I’ve reimagined those as the emotional, mental, and physical parts of ourselves: how we feel, what we think/believe, and from those healthier places, what we do. And in each one, I offer the antidote to those textbook breakdowns: we need healing, hope, and then help.
To start feeling change more quickly we’ll walk through each layer over three weeks, then revisit them to go deeper. You’ll end with a cheatsheet roadmap you can return to for years to come, to make this process muscle memory and to approach each new season of your life with increasing wisdom, peace, and confidence.
We start to feel better now. We explore science-based actions we can take to help our bodies feel and function better. Bonus, they are all delightful and feel good! We’ll increase our self-compassion as we increase our self-awareness of how we’re really feeling and functioning today. Let’s begin by replenishing, so we can breathe a bit before we move into more complex problem solving.
Next we examine our cultural expectations, honoring truths we sometimes cannot change. We grapple with our personal beliefs and choices, where we are most empowered for change. This all rests on a core belief that the purpose of life cannot be to micromanage it, and live exhausted until it’s all over. What does it mean to live a good life?
Each week you’ll also receive meditative audio classes designed to be used while journaling, walking, driving, or stretching. These messages reinforce the teaching throughout the week, with space for you to be with your thoughts without needing perfect quiet to do so. Each comes in a 10 or 20 minute version to best support your needs that day, and can become favorites you return to every week for years to come, to spend more time with the most important person in your life and the number one person who can heal you: you.
You have asked for this community for years! A place to gather, connect, meet like-minded women, and get more support from Hilary even when you’re detoxing social media. Before opening to the public in 2023, our founding members are students of Healing Burnout, helping us shape what this community will be and better hearing how to support your growth and connections.
All the research shows that change happens most effectively in a community of people who are on the same journey. Their ahas will inspire your own, their shifts give you a great idea for yours. They’ll have the perfect advice you need, and in return, you’ll have wonderful advice for them in another area. And since most of my close friends are women I met on the internet, I want to create a space where you can cultivate new adult friendships with healthy women that inspire and support you.
Coming in 2023, there will be a monthly theme with new teaching from Hilary each month and ongoing support from our team and your new friends. Plus, founding members will lock in our lowest rate should they choose to continue in the community.
What if you get inside and the Healing Burnout course isn’t right for you? Please don’t buy if you just want to “check it out”. This program was created with love and integrity, for people ready and willing to take action. However, if you dive in and feel it’s not right for you, you can cancel within 30 days. I believe in this teaching and want to make sure you’re thrilled with it!
“THANK YOU!! I’ve always struggled with being a workaholic and chronically feeling behind. It is so refreshing to hear the perspective of shutting out the noise of the hustlers and seeking out the resters.”
“Hilary’s teachings always help me unlock my mindset and see things from a different perspective. I have worked with a few coaches but genuinely find Hilary’s teachings more valuable than the private coaches I have seen.”
“I’ve been following Hilary for years and taken several of her courses. I LOVE how positive, energetic, and genuine she is. So caring, always nice. She makes me feel like I’m in a room with like-minded individuals.”
We are suffering. We need compassion, healing, and better tools to navigate a society that’s leaving both working women and mothers burned out at higher rates than ever before.
Stop suffering for one more year to an imaginary finish line you never reach. It’s time to start living, for your sake and everyone you love around you.
I want to run around shouting to anyone who’s in pain that there is freedom; there is so much more peace available to you. It isn’t easy, but it can be so much easier. Please let me show you how I’ve shifted off a heavy inclined treadmill into a garden with more places to sit and just be.
No matter what your circumstances—children, aging parents, entrepreneur, hourly or salary employee, any age—this is for you. We make space with foundational wisdom that applies to any story and therefore all the stories that may be ours over the years to come. We ask complex questions that welcome in the reality of life and focus on practical solutions, while also dreaming outside the cultural boundaries modeled for us. You are welcome here, and there is rest for you in this place.
Our first module begins on Saturday, November 12th with a new module unlocked each Saturday for six weeks. This pacing allows you time to absorb and sit with each teaching, so you start to feel the shifts before adding on new insights or actions, without overwhelm.
Yes! The Elegant Excellence Community is officially launching with this course as our first ever space to connect with Hilary and our community not just about business or style, but our lives in all their elements. You’ll be surrounded by hundreds of women on the journey with you, with additional teachings released each month after the course to keep going deeper. This is a place to tell the truth, ask the hard questions, get advice, give advice, and genuinely make adult friendships with other healthy women doing the work to live well.
Each teaching is 20 min or less. You’ll receive 3 teachings each week inside the course. All can be consumed on the go, listening only, whether you’re driving, walking, folding laundry, or putting on your makeup. Whenever you do have more time, sitting to take notes and being fully present will help you absorb the most, but with access not expiring you have plenty of time to revisit each again and again.
Yes. We have a 30-day worry-free guarantee.
