If you are anything like us, the last two years have exhausted you to the point of emotional and physical burnout, at times leaving you scattered and unfocused. “Stress” and “Distraction” have become a part of our daily vocabulary, and that’s why Calm Live is here to provide you with the tools needed to help you find much-needed relief.

Join our Calm app contributors, stress and burnout expert Chibs Okereke, and Stanford University Fellow John Armstrong as they take you through an impactful session that will show you how to build healthy habits to improve focus and recover from work/life stress.

Between Chibs’ mindful approach and personal experience with severe corporate burnout and John’s extensive work in building human-centered work cultures, this event will deliver you tangible steps to help take on the everyday stress that life throws our way.
