Burnout is one of the largest epidemics in our society. It can take over, push us to our limits and slowly break us down. The hardest part about burnout is recognising and accepting that we are suffering from it in our own lives. Only then can we start to reverse the impacts.
Last year I experienced the health implications of major burnout. The rise to career success and keeping up with the day-to-day grind was just too much for me. I started to notice the signs of chronic illness brewing and I knew I needed to change my life.
I wrote about my experiences on Native Two about lifestyle changes and techniques I’ve used to cope with burnout. In sharing this, I hope it can bring a sense of comfort for those experiencing this in their lives.
