If you continuously neglect your own self-care to get more done at work, you’re going to want to listen to this episode of Power Presence Academy.

I talk to Pashon Mann about how chronic stress can accumulate in our bodies and manifest as illness.  She shares her own experience as a busy executive going about her high-achieving, superwoman ways until a thunderbolt diagnosis took her by total surprise.

“We’re so caught up in achieving, proving, pleasing, and moving forward. We forget that we are a physical body and there’s a human here. There is an energy that’s within us that if we don’t manage it, if we don’t really take care of this container, all of the other things we’re doing are useless.”
