Efforts help organizations where employees are at greatest risk for burnout

LOS ANGELES, April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Grounded in the belief that traditional approaches to health and wellness alone are not enough, A Thousand Joys (ATJ), a new nonprofit, launched today in Los Angeles. ATJ is a consulting and training firm that helps individuals and organizations move beyond day-to-day survival so they can work smarter, be more productive, and avoid an increasing occupational hazard - burnout.

"A Thousand Joys is dedicated to gaining widespread acceptance for integrated mind-body approaches to health and wellness," says ATJ's founder and chairman, Raul Alvarado.
