🎙 Tapping into Burnout with Flic TaylorJul 24, 2022
In this week’s episode, I chat with Flic Taylor who is a freelance writer talking about mental health, wellbeing, and burnout. She aims to educate people about burnout through her blog relating to her experience and her recovery.
Flic’s experience is so powerful as she shares with us how as a mental health writer she completely missed the signs of her own burnout until being shocked into realising the depth of her burnout by a health practitioner. We discuss how burnout has become common in key worker roles over the past two roles and the concept of burnout becoming more understood due to its prevalence. We also consider how the pervasive nature of burnout can creep up on us when we do not expect it. We cover issues such as the impact of the lack of sleep, poor boundaries and numbing ourselves rather than nourishing ourselves. Flic shares with us the key signs of burnout so be sure to listen to the whole episode to see if you are also experiencing burnout.
- It is possible to burn out doing something that you love and adore
- Burnout can creep up on you and you miss the signs
- There is a difference between stress and burnout
- Being in service does not need to equal sacrifice
- It is necessary to nourish yourself instead of numbing yourself
I hope you enjoy this conversation and take away so much from it.
