Over time, a stressful period in life can turn into a stressful way of life. Depending on how we manage stress, the healthy alternation between tension and relaxation can progressively reduce until we are almost constantly in a state of high alert. This is when we find ourselves uttering statements like ‘I can’t go on’, ‘I’m burned out’, ‘my batteries are flat’. Constant availability, huge to-do lists and making excessive demands of ourselves feed these negative thoughts. The Ayurveda Resort Mandira’s Burnout Prevention programme is based on psychological strategies for stress reduction, effective, pro-active stress management, intestinal cleansing for strengthening the immune system, and boosting mental and physical resources through diet, individual treatments and relaxation techniques.
