Burnout – the hardest thing about fixing it is that we can be too burned out to do anything about it. There can be so many pressures coming at us from so many different directions. A single event in our lives can unravel us: an accident or health crisis, the need to care for a loved one with special needs, a divorce, an economic reversal. The demands can seem endless and the pressure to hold it all together is tremendous.

On today’s episode of Healthy Wellthy U, we look at both the psychological and medical aspects of burnout. We examine factors, both conscious and unconscious, that drive us – cultural messaging, work culture, family expectations. And we look at ways to give ourselves the strength to break the cycle, including a health checklist to help you get started and a discussion of adaptogens to heal your adrenals, improve energy and increase resilience.
