One of the biggest reasons I started this podcast was because of my own experience struggling to thrive at work and in life. The main culprit for my unhappiness and at times, depressive symptoms in life was work. Early on in my career I struggled ... a lot! I didn't know it at the time but I was suffering from a bad case of workplace burnout with a hefty layer of stress added on top. If you talk to some of my friends and colleagues (and even my wife) from this time, I guarantee they could tell you how miserable I was.
If you've ever suffered from stress at work, or worse burnout, then I want you to pay close attention to this episode where I talk to stress and resilience expert Paula Davis-Laack. It's going to completely change the way you manage and balance your work, stress, and more importantly how you bounce back or push through the inevitable adversities you'll encounter in the workplace. It doesn't matter whether you've experience a lot or a little bit of stress or burnout - there are habits and practices in this interview that will help you to thrive.
In today’s episode, Paula and I discuss:
What Burnout at work looks like and why it’s so devastating to our health and well-being
The most effective habits to prevent burnout and to build our resilience
Some great book recommendations to help us learn more about the science of burnout prevention and resilience
And so many more insights and practical tools to help us!
