Kendall’s other passions include working with recovering addicts using a holistic approach to sobriety and bringing mindfulness programs into inner city schools with at risk youth in her community. We know stress is a part of life, but neither powering though stress nor shying away from having a full life are effective ways to manage it. So then how can we manage stress in our modern lives? Kendall Kendrick knows firsthand the effects of unmanaged stress after it nearly took her life. Today Kendall shares her story being given a second chance at life and her journey from self-medicating to self-care and sustainable stress management practices. You won’t want to miss today’s discussion filled with motivation, practical tips, and insight into how to manage stress through ancestral connection, self-care, mindfulness. Here are some of the questions we discussed with Kendall: How did you get into the field of stress management? How do you view an ancestral lifestyle and diet fitting into your idea of stress management? Are the chronic conditions that we face today mostly related to poorly managed stress and then the diet and lifestyle that’s not the same as our ancestors? Are there other big problems that you see come up as a result of unmanaged stress? What can somebody do to help control their stress level? What are your favorite techniques? When you sit down to write up a self-care plan, how do you determine how much is necessary? What does that plan end up looking like?
