Rise & Shine Bright is a growing community of individuals seeking a more fulfilling life and/or those already on that journey, sharing what has helped them. This community is here to drive deeper connection and support for those feeling burnout, stuck in a rut, lonely and/or unfulfilled.
This community believes each and every one of us was born with unique gifts that only we can share with the world: our purpose. When we live a more purposeful life, we're more joyful and naturally spark a light in others to seek their own life's purpose.
We're facing a strange time in society. There are strong forces leading many to feel isolated, overwhelmed and adrift.
Rates of depression and anxiety have more than tripled as a devastating ripple effect of the pandemic. Workplace burnout is on the rise with over half of Americans experiencing it. But even prior to the pandemic, many were going through the motions; not living fulfilled lives.
According to a 2019 study, more than half of Americans have unhealthy work-life balance.
Pervasive social media use confuses hyper-communication with connection, leaving many with feelings of inadequacy, loneliness, and depression.
Americans are impacted by rising political polarization. Political animosity is high because policies are so interwoven with our morals and values; political intolerance undermines open discussion and debate which drives greater division.
Teen anxiety statistics are at an all time high, and they seem to only be increasing. Youth are feeling greater disconnection, high levels of pressure, and anxious as mass shootings and active shooter drills in schools have become the norm.
Across our country, colleges and universities are facing a mental health crisis with huge numbers of students needing mental health care but many are not prepared to handle the growing demand.
We prescribe antidepressants at a rate 400 times higher than we did 20 years ago.
As a result of feeling overwhelmed, lonely, and disconnected, many are self-medicating leading to increasing rates of substance abuse. According to the Addiction Center, nearly 21 million Americans have at least one addiction, yet only 10% of them receive treatment.
This community was built with the intention to tackle this together so we all can lead more joyful and fulfilled lives. Through connection, resources, coaching, and support, we believe that we're all capable of shining in life.
We invite you to share your light so we can all rise and shine bright together.
Thank you for visiting and sharing!
