A few years ago, I was so depleted at work that not even a two-week vacation to Maui could help me. Just a few weeks back at work and I was feeling miserable all over again.
If you had asked me then if I was burned out, I would have said no.
To be honest, I didn’t think burnout was a real thing. I thought it was just a dramatic word that people used when they were tired.
In the past few weeks, I’ve come across a couple articles and videos on burnout. Looking back on my own story, I realized I was burned out.
As a result, I’ve become so curious about what burnout is and what signs we can look for to know it’s coming.
Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Grace Estripeaut at Boost Your Zen on this topic. I was so excited to talk with her.
In our interview, Grace answers questions like:
- How do you know if you’re burned out?
- What can you do about burnout?
- How do you carve out time to deal with it?
We also talk about how to know the early signs of so you can avoid meltdowns like the one I had when I was at the end of my rope. Yes, I literally lost it at work over two kittens, an email, and a missed meeting.
Finally, we discuss Grace’s wind down technique, a practical way to turn off your busy mind at night, so you can relax and enjoy deep sleep. I love it.
And we cover my new audio, “The Two Paths of Meaningful Work.” Get it for free here.
Whether or not you’re currently dealing with burnout, I hope our interview can help you live your best life!
