Joan Borysenko – SBNR Daily 1-12-11

Today’s Goodness: Our friend Joan Borysenko has a new book! In Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive, Joan —a Harvard-trained medical scientist, psychologist, and renowned pioneer in stress and health—straddles psychology, biology, and soul in a completely fresh approach to burnout. Her deeply human (and often amusing) personal accounts of burnout and recovery help convey a clear understanding of the science behind helplessness, hopelessness, and empowerment. We love Joan!

Have a great day! ~The SBNR Team
