Both of the above definitions of the word burnout, although not contextually applicable to human beings, are nonetheless entirely applicable to human beings. It's a growing problem amongst people across all industries, and it's damaging our mental and physical health.
In the Burnout Clinic, my aim is to talk about what burnout is, what you can do to try and alleviate work related stress (and stress in general), and to open up the floor for a candid and honest conversation where we share our experiences and what has or hasn't worked for us in trying to deal with burnout.
So come and join me on Wednesday 15th September and let's see if we can put some more fuel in the tank.
