39: Less Stress More Fun with Jessi Andricks

episode 39

Have you ever seen another SLP that looks like they are so calm and confident, and you think to yourself, why can’t I be like that? 

Yes, you can love your job again!  

In this episode, our guest, Jessi Andricks, focuses on helping SLPs reduce burnout and stress through evidence-based stress management tools and techniques.  

Several years into her SLP career, Jessi became so burnt out that she decided to leave the field completely. Her life changed dramatically when she became a yoga instructor and learned powerful stress-reducing techniques from the wellness field. Jessi’s career has come full-circle, and she’s stepped back into work as an SLP but is now thriving thanks to incorporating the tools she learned in her yoga and wellness training. Her passion is to teach other SLP’s to live without feeling burdened by stress each day so that you can have a thriving career. 

Jessi is sharing some actionable steps that you can take right now to help you reduce your stress and start enjoying your SLP career again. 



In This Episode, You’ll Discover:


  • The big lie that most SLPs believe (hint, you aren’t the only one that feels this way)
  • Mindset shifts you need to make when you find yourself getting caught up in the stress
  • Going with the flow can often set you free from stress
  • Knowing that the stress is always going to be there can be a good thing
  • Self-care doesn’t have to be complicated
  • What to do when you feel like you can never turn your thoughts off
  • How to use your breath as a tool to reduce your stress


episode 39


If you are feeling burnt out in your career, quitting isn’t your only option.  Stress is, unfortunately, a part of life no matter what job you choose. Learning to manage your stress properly is the key to a happy and fulfilled life. 

As an SLP, you spend so much time caring for others, but it’s also necessary to take care of yourself. Taking just a few minutes every day to meditate or journal can profoundly impact your outlook and help you manage your daily stress.
