Jan-BruceJan Bruce is an entrepreneur with a proven track record in high-growth emerging businesses and turnarounds. She has a passion for building consumer-grade products that help people make measurable improvements in health, wellness and healthy lifestyle. Bruce is currently CEO and co-founder of meQuilibrium, the #1 digital resilience platform, which helps both individuals and corporations achieve measurable results in emotional well-being, stress management and performance optimization. Bruce founded meQuilibrium in 2010 to address the growing prevalence of stress and anxiety in our corporate culture, leveraging resilience training and cognitive behavioral therapy online to deliver a broad-based, accessible and scalable impact on employees and their families. “Stress and overwhelm are the new norm, so today’s workforce needs resilience as a front line defense, not strictly when crisis occurs. meQuilibrium delivers high impact, including extremely high engagement, so everyone can experience the power of being more resilience and every company can benefit from the promise of a more resilience workforce,” said Bruce.

Prior to founding meQuilibrium, Bruce sold her company, body+soul/whole living, to Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in 2004 and served as their Managing Director for five years, during which time she led the growth of the business: quadrupling the revenues and tripling the circulation, spawning a multi‐platform franchise than includes website, video on demand, a daily radio show and a new green cleaning product‐line.

A runner, yogi, avid cook, Bruce is a graduate of Smith College.

meQuilibrium: Tools to Help You Cope with Stress
We all experience stress, whether it's good or bad.

Unfortunately stress is seemingly more present than ever in today's society.

As special guest Jan Bruce puts it, "stress is the new fat," in that how it affects your well-being has become of utmost importance.

Like food, your body needs some stress to function optimally. The problem arises is when you have too much of it, especially too much of the bad kind.

To address this increasingly problematic issue, Jan created meQuilibrium, a "digital resilience platform," which helps both individuals and corporations achieve measurable results in emotional well-being, stress management and performance optimization.

“Stress and overwhelm are the new norm, so today’s workforce needs resilience as a front line defense, not strictly when crisis occurs," says Jan. "meQuilibrium delivers high impact, including extremely high engagement, so everyone can experience the power of more resilience and every company can benefit from the promise of a more resilient workforce."

When creating meQuilibrium, Jan looked more at the way individuals react to stress, rather than the individual stressors themselves. 

Listen in as Jan joins Naturally Savvy hosts, Andrea Donsky and Lisa Davis, to share how meQuilibrium works and why it's so essential to manage the stress in your life.
