This week, we’re tackling a less glamorous, but incredibly important topic: burnout.
I’ve experienced extreme burnout twice in my career.
A few weeks back, I realized that I was heading in that direction again. I’m grateful for not only noticing I was burned out but also acting on the red flags way sooner than I have in the past.
Still, it’s never easy!
Today, I’m sharing four ways I’m tackling my burnout head-on.
One of the ways I’m preventing further burnout is making the choice to step away from the podcast for a few months. It was an incredibly hard decision, but one I knew I had to make. I look forward to publishing new episodes again in October, but in the meantime, you can keep up with me via the newsletter.
What is something you know that you need to drop even though it pains you? Let's talk about it.
In this episode you’ll learn:
The burnout symptoms I was experiencing that caused me to pause and assess.
How I’m learning to say no – or, not right now.
The reflection question that helped me make hard choices.
