The Particulars

TALO is about recognizing that to recover from burnout -- or better yet to avoid burning out in the first place requires work -- means identifying and consistently using tools to buffer and sustain you from the stressors you confront daily.

There's no one-size-fits-all; you choose what to include in your toolbox. Sampling of the six 'pillars' below is encouraged. start your journey today; sign up to find out more.

Connect with Nature

Spending time in nature -- even viewing it from a window -- creates scientifically measurable benefits for the body, mind, and spirit. 

Join Peers 

There's something powerful about opening up to peers -- that "OMG it's not just me" feeling is reassuring and healing in ways that nothing else is.

Sit in Silence

Science has proven the value of meditation but not everyone is into it so sitting around reading, knitting, or simply sitting still works here too.

Play | Create

Play reduces stress, strengthens relationships, boosts energy and brain power, and sparks creativity. Unleash your inner kid!

Cultivate Curiosity

Existing synapses grow and new ones are formed when we learn something new. It's how our brains stay fresh so be curious!


Yoga, dance, tai chi whatever your groove -- movement heals and releases serotonin, which can bring on happiness, focus, and calm.
