I wanted to include burnout as it’s such an important topic that affects so many. 

Clients contact me wondering why they don't desire sex and when I hear how stressed and exhausted they are, no wonder they don't feel like sex! 

I loved this conversation with Jolinda who specialises in burnout and perimenopause though this conversation is relevant to all ages. Jolinda shares her definition of burnout and how it differs from the mainstream definition, how to spot the early warning signs of burnout, the 4 stages of burnout and some practical advice on burnout recovery. We also talk about how burnout affects sex, burnout at peri menopause and Jolinda’s take on menopause.   I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. 

Jolinda shares:

  • The shadow of the wellness industry
  • Why it’s important to advocate for your own health and wellness
  • The 4 stages of burnout
  • What dysregulated cortisol is
  • Jolinda’s definition of burnout and how it differs to the World Health Organisation definition
  • How burnout affects sex and desire
  • The societal messages and structures that contribute to burnout 
  • How you can burnout doing the things you love
  • How to start burnout recovery
  • Exercise and burnout recovery
  • The early warning signs of burnout 
  • The importance of boundaries and self compassion
  • The gifts of midlife
