Real Talk About Burnout
Today on Harder To Kill Radio I am sharing a major announcement and letting you in on a personal issue that I hope will help those of you who are also struggling with burnout. While it has become more and more common in our society for us to feel exhausted and burnt out, it is not normal, and this universal concept needs to be addressed.
Struggling With Burnout
If you feel as though you are struggling with a lack of creativity, motivation or mental health, burnout could be the culprit. By setting boundaries, focusing on self-care and being open with what you are dealing with, we can destigmatize and de-normalize burnout for the masses.
A lot of us are struggling with burnout while pretending we have it all together. If you are wrestling with burning out because you are trying to do all of the things, this is the episode you need to listen too. How do you protect yourself from getting burnt out? Share your self-care strategies with us in the comments on the episode page.
