In today's episode we are talking about how to avoid burnout. This is something that is talked about a lot these days because on constant social media pressure to have a side hustle, be productive ALWAYS and that working yourself to the bone should be glorified. This, as we will soon learn, can have significant effects on your overall health and level of satisfaction with your life. We talk about what burnout is, the signs, the 12 phases (as outlined by psychologist's Herbert Freudenberger (coined burnout) and Gail Nroth) AND how you can prevent burnout.   If you or someone in your life needs help or support at any time, contact LifeLine on 13 11 14.    Stay up to date with me on Instagram: @thehealthclassesyoumissed or TikTok @thcym_podcast
