Burnout is a result of excessive and prolonged emotional, physical, and mental stress. Quite often, burnout is related to one’s job.


It happens to everyone some time or another. One is busy going here and there — working, helping others, or taking care of our families. Sometimes, one gets too busy and forgets to take a step back and rest. That is when burnout can occur. And let’s not forget that high levels of reactivity lead to high levels of cortisol.


Jennifer, Danielle and Bailey dive deep into what is burnout and the importance of getting yourself on a regular schedule, checking in with yourself and identifying your smoke alarms. Furthermore they share tons of advice on how to recover from this swamped feeling and regain a balanced happy life back.
