After a sell-out two-print run, Dr Ela Manga has decided to re-launch her book The Energy Code with a brand-new title: BREATHE: Strategising Energy in the Age of Burnout.

“The response I’ve had from The Energy Code made me realise the level of overwhelm and anxiety that so many people are living with every day. We are desperately seeking ways to manage our everyday life amidst huge pressures and turmoil and to stay on top of our game without compromising our health and relationships. I strongly felt that I needed to reach more people with this important message of how to live fully without burning out and believe that by re-titling the book BREATHE, we will reach more people with these vital tools and simple life strategies,” says Dr Manga.
