Harriet Minter

 Are you always shattered? Feeling unable to handle life’s stresses to the best of your ability? With the high-pressure jobs many of us have, along with our demanding family lives and the perpetual barrage of social media, is it any wonder that so many of us are constantly feeling exhausted, run down and generally burnt out? Journalist and broadcaster Harriet Minter has been there. In this interactive workshop, she’ll explain what it feels like to be on the edge of burnout and how you can successfully bring yourself back.

Harriet is a journalist, speaker and advocate for #WomenInLeadership. For more information, follow her on Twitter and Instagram.

You will learn:

  •  Simple strategies for daily self-care that don’t involve spending hours meditating
  • A simple technique to improve your health, calm your mind and add years to your life
  • The ultimate key you need to solve the biggest problem you’re facing in your life today
