In my work as a Registered Psychologist, I work with people who are experiencing burnout on a regular basis. I see people who are emotionally exhausted, losing hope, and feeling disconnected from the things they used to care about. I wanted to find a way to share what I know with a larger number of people, and I also wanted to be mindful of the fact that it can be hard to carve out time to focus on your mental health these days. In this mini-course, I go over 4 steps to preventing burnout. These steps are absolutely foundational to the work I do every day. It's what I share with clients in the therapy room, and it's how I manage to do the work I continue to do every day.
Through a series of short videos you can complete within an hour, you'll learn all about the signs you're burning out and how you can make sure to take those signs seriously.
I believe everyone deserves at least an hour for themselves, especially with all we give to our work, and families, and our communities. So please, give yourself that time. This world needs more people who are sustained, grounded, and connected to their aliveness. It can start here.
