Managing the Burnout, Anxiety, & Depression Created By Your “Busy Brain” with Romie Mushtaq

Feeling exhausted lately? You are gonna LOVE this episode!

Join me and my incredible guest, Dr. Romie, as we delve into the stress success cycle and its toll on the brain, highlighting how chronic stress can lead to burnout. Drawing from her own battle with chronic stress and illness, she explains how stress impacts brain functions, causing anxiety, adult-onset ADHD, and insomnia.

Dr. Romie introduces the concept of a “busy brain,” especially among entrepreneurs, and presents the Busy Brain Test to identify early signs of burnout. We also discuss restoring circadian rhythms and supplements.

Tune in to learn how to:

  • Confront chronic stress to prevent physical disease—don’t normalize it
  • Replace the outdated stress success cycle with healthier paradigms
  • Recognize a busy brain through signs like anxiety, adult-onset ADHD, and insomnia
  • Follow the Brain Shift Protocol, an eight-week plan to find focus, reduce anxiety, and improve sleep

Connect with Dr. Romie on her Website or you can DM me on Instagram, “Dr. Romie, my homie”.
