Key Highlights

  • Burnout is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions: feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance, or feelings of negativism or cynicism. Does any of this resonate with you? If so, you’re likely burnt out!
  • May sheds light on how burnout caused her to feel uninspired and unmotivated in her career and how burnout impacted her physical, mental, and emotional health. 
  • How do you effectively manage stress? May shares an analogy to illustrate the idea that when you react to and process your stress, the stress is able to be broken down and released without being stored in the body.
  • If your partner is experiencing burnout, or if you’re both experiencing burnout, how can you get through it? May and Chase speak on the importance of acknowledging the space that each of you are in, sharing about your work day at a time that feels right for you, and allowing yourself the time to fully process your stress before involving your partner. Always be willing to listen, ask your partner what they need/want, and be willing to give them space.
  • When your partner doesn’t want to talk about their day, be accepting of that and don’t take it personally.
  • Managing and recovering from burnout is a non-linear process. There may be waves of emotions and feelings, some days might be better than others, but there’s always a way to overcome it.
