In the past few years, the conversation about burnout in the media has grown as large and loud as the problem itself – and while the conversation itself is important, it can also be a little overwhelming.
The challenge is that often, even when we know what burnout is and how it comes about, we don’t know how to escape the cycle and make ourselves feel better.
Whether you are:
- a chronic “yes person” who struggles to set (and keep) personal and professional boundaries…
- a child of constantly busy parents who inherited their crazy work ethic…
- or just an ordinary person caught up in 21st century overwhelm…
Your experience of burnout is more than valid. After all, we have just spent several years in a pressure cooker without the outlets we would usually rely on to decompress.
If the process of returning to some semblance of “normal” has left you confused, exhausted and desperately clinging to temporary fixes in the form of self-care rituals – you’re in the right place.
In a recent interview on the Health in the Real World podcast with Chris Janke, Hannah share insights into the nature of burnout and practical tips on managing and overcoming it.
All you have to do is give yourself permission to take some time out of your busy schedule and listen – it’s the perfect intersection of things you should do and things you want to do.
So what’s this episode really about?
- The problem with society’s views on what makes us valuable and worthy
- Why it can be so hard to admit the struggle with burnout
- Tips on managing time more effectively and creating more momentum in your day
- The importance of looking inside yourself and listening to your inner voice
Why you should listen?
In this day and age, no one is immune to burnout. The ongoing push to do and be more has created an epidemic, and we’re all still learning more about how it happens and how we can handle it better. This episode will take you a little further along that journey.
You can quote me on that…
“Burnout literally sets no boundaries. Everybody can be burned out.” – Hannah Austin
[Life is] a puzzle…You move the pieces and you say, What can go? Are these must-haves or should-haves or wants? It’s just basically parsing it out.” – Hannah Austin
“One of the biggest causes in life is just feeling like you’re worthless, like you don’t want to go to work and [like] no matter what you do or how much you produce – which is how our society shows us that we’re successful – it’s just [not] enough.” – Hannah Austin
