We’ve partnered with NowThis to present Turning Points, a collection of firsthand accounts from people about their experiences with burnout — including what their wake-up call moments were, advice they wish they had gotten before the scales tipped too far, and how they recalibrated their lives to find a version of success that does come with health and fulfillment. The four women featured in the first set of Turning Points videos talk about leaving behind the worlds of corporate America, fashion, PR and finance to pursue lives in which their well-being was not an afterthought.

Gabby Bernstein thought she had it all when she was the 25-year-old president of her nightlife PR company. Her wake-up call came when she hit rock bottom with a drug addiction and realized she was a shell of the person she wanted to be. Success to Gabby, now a New York Times bestselling author and international speaker, means having fun in her every day life.

Watch Gabby’s story below.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
