Episode 49: Beating Burnout in 2020

In this episode, we discuss beating burnout in this crazy year of 2020. Burnout can happen in many ways but is super common due to crazy work schedules or raising children with numerous special needs. We discuss the signs and symptoms of burnout, as well as our experiences with burnout. Jess speaks about the easy ways to beat burnout, including:

  • Staying social and finding support.
  • Delegating and saying no, when possible.
  • Make healthy choices.
  • Engage in pleasurable activities on a daily basis.
  • Use relaxation strategies like slowed deep breathing, body scan, or mental vacations.
  • Bring back creativity!
  • And, of course, mindfulness!
