If the past year has been a weird one for you, you’re not alone. And if you’ve been struggling with trying to find the energy to do things that were once a breeze then you’ll know that burning out or getting close to burnout can really knock you on your backside.
In this evergreen podcast episode, Trudy interviews Counseling and Clinical Psychologist Katrina Streatfeild about what to do AFTER you’ve burned out and are trying to pick up the pieces.
We talked about:
- Beyond normal – all the things happening in the world right now
- How old coping mechanisms might not be enough anymore
- Long term stressors, stress hormones and our ability to cope
- How do we get off the hamster wheel?
- The impact on others when we are compassionate for ourselves
- The necessity of acknowledging that the world has changed
- A process for reimagining our future
- Defining what's realistic in terms of goals now
- How do we figure out what's meaningful now?
- Setting new baselines
- What to do if you don't know what success looks like any longer
So if the thought of facing an unknown future has you feeling a bit exhausted, you are not alone. Have a listen and try the process Katrina is suggesting. It may help.
