#65 Burnout: The Recovery (Part 2 of 2)

No one is bulletproof. Eventually, everyone will need to confront burnout. The question is, then, how do you do so productively and healthily?

Today, I talk about recovering from burnout. I note the power of small steps and explain why keeping a journal is so helpful. I emphasise the importance of keeping good habits, perhaps especially when you don’t think you need to. I talk about the power of micro-moments of self-care, and I call on you to treat yourself as you would your best friend. I explain how to react to negative emotions, I note that you’re not the only one who struggles, and I discuss the twofold power of staying connected to others and taking personal time. I note the importance of avoiding toxic negativity, and I explain why you should let yourself say no.
