Many people don't recognise their own fatigue and don't know what it might feel like. 

  • Anyone can experience burnout.

  • Exhaustion is the epidemic of our time.

  • Vulnerability is strength.

  • People are running out, the wires are unplugged and the pull is off. Even imperceptible stress strains the sensory system and throws the body out of balance. 

  • It's time to intervene!

We have reached the century record for fatigue and sedentarism

"I argue that rest is not enough for recovery, but dealing with aggression'' - Marja Putkisto

What does recovery mean to you?

Marja says: 

''It's not just about having a space to live, be and act, but to be motivated and excited about what we do.

Every human being is capable of recovery. The challenge is that we need a load to make us stronger. Therefore, rest is not always enough, but recovery is the ability to independently regulate the form of stress, resistance and load (- and in a creative and inspiring way.)

The best things in life are learning new things and putting effort into meaningful work, and that's what training done right helps you do.''
