Cultivating Flow + Banishing Burnout this Holiday Season + Beyond with Dr. Lauren Hodge

November 21, 2022

powered by Sounder

As a researcher in the field of psychology and behavior change, Lauren’s experiences implementing strategies for change help to set her apart from many coaches and mindset practitioners. She researched, developed, and delivered evidence-informed programs for parents experiencing high stress across a range of contexts, from natural disasters to pandemics, with complex risk factors such as housing difficulties, domestic and family violence, child abuse and neglect, and infant and baby developmental difficulties.

Lauren has worked in multiple countries and served as a consultant to the World Health Organization’s Department of Mental Health and Substance Use. For eight years, she researched the positive parenting program alongside the program founder and developers and worked at the international head office in Australia. This parenting program is used in more than 25 countries, including the US, and has the world’s largest evidence base. It is number one on the United Nations’ ranking of parenting programs, based on the extent of its evidence base.

Working directly with parents in the positive psychology program, Lauren honed her coaching process. Yet it was Lauren’s own personal battle with burnout years ago that fuels her passion for helping individuals identify their core values and goals and live intentionally today. She has developed a coaching program informed by social, behavioral, and neuroscience research to help people suffering from chronic stress to forge a path to greater fulfillment.

After years of publishing and speaking on expert panels, she’s now bringing her collected learnings directly to you, through her consultancy services and coaching courses.

Originally from South Carolina, Lauren loves taking nature walks with friends and listening to podcasts about the science behind human behavior. She highly recommends ice bath and sauna sessions to reduce inflammation and get a quick boost of positive energy.

In this episode, Emily and Lauren discuss:

  1. Actionable steps and tactical practices to prevent burnout this holiday season
  2. The benefits a flow state and how to create conditions for peak performance and focus in your life and work
  3. The importance of social connection for longevity, stress management, + combating isolation
  4. Why daily space for reflection and meditation are the keys to setting better boundaries and ultimately getting your needs met (in business & beyond)
