Stress. Anxiety. Burnout. Exhaustion. Those are common problems for entrepreneurs and their spouses. But how do you manage stress as the wife of an entrepreneur? Are there natural, holistic approaches to mental health that include diet and lifestyle changes?
Ellen Vora, M.D., answers those questions and more. She is a board-certified psychiatrist, medical acupuncturist, and yoga teacher. Dr. Vora takes a functional medicine approach to mental health - considering the whole person and addressing imbalance at the root, rather than reflexively prescribing medication. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Vora is also a writer, speaker, blogger and a consultant for two healthcare startups.
Dr. Vora explains how simple changes to food, sleep, exercise, and community can make big impacts on our mental health. We discuss how to work through the cycle of emotions (and that it’s okay to be emotional!), how to support our entrepreneurs when they’re stressed, and - you may have guessed it - how less is more. You’ll also hear her remind me to stop thinking, “I should,” and to start embracing who I am because I have something to contribute to the world.
