As a kid, my favourite tale was Kipling’s story of ‘How The Elephant Got His Trunk’. Like the elephant, I was insatiably curious about the world. It also got me into a bit of trouble, like the time I set the kitchen on fire during a chemistry experiment.

My curiosity led me to ask, why does our body and mind sometimes let us down?

That curiosity led to a career in medicine as a GP and Board-Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician, but I only discovered my true calling after burning out. Today, as an international speaker, best-selling author and workplace health consultant my mission is to make work, work better by making mental wellbeing the norm and burnout redundant. Tired of seeing too many hard-working people struggling to stay at the top of their game my goal is to inspire great places to work, so we can all truly thrive. www.drjennybrockis.com

My fourth book Thriving Mind: How to Cultivate a Good Life (Wiley) was published in August 2020 and when not at work you’ll find me either cuddled up with a book, hiking in nature, or experimenting in the kitchen.
