Episode #16 Running on Empty - How to Beat Burnout Before it Beats You
Welcome to another episode of Mindset Medicine where I explore the ups and downs of life and offer practical solutions to everyday mindset challenges. In today's episode, we're tackling a topic that hits close to home for many of us: burnout. It's a serious condition that can affect every aspect of our lives, but fear not! I am here to shed some light on the situation and guide you towards finding your inner spark again.
Burnout is a serious condition. Suffering from burnout can impact all aspects of life, but it doesn’t need to be a life sentence. Armed with the right mindset, being open to asking yourself some tough questions, and a willingness to feel some (temporary) pain, burnout can provide an opportunity to self-reflect, take stock, and ultimately become more self-aware. It offers a chance for you to turn inward and discover the connection (or disconnection) between your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, values, and the work you’ve chosen to do. And it can help you determine what steps you need to take to get in alignment with the people and things that matter most in your life.
