Sadly, I've felt like my journey to recovery from burnout has been a bit two or three steps forward, one step back. I don't ever want to create an episode about it just to have someone to vent to, but it's been a hard few weeks. I thought if I could figure out how to help myself, I could write down what seemed to work and share it with you.
In this episode, I discuss how to learn to recognize the backward steps and encourage you to start a list of things that usually help you stop backsliding and begin making forward progress again. I share some of the mental and emotional challenges I've had and what has helped, as well as the wisdom I've gleaned about how to deal with the physical symptoms.
I hope this helps you - to either help yourself if you're struggling with burnout, or to help a friend.
