New Blog At Yogamatters: 5 Ways To Naturally Prevent & Remedy Burnout

Have you ever felt exhausted and depleted, or as though you’ve lost your love for life? If any of these symptoms occurred after a prolonged bout of stress, you could be dealing with burnout. In my latest blog for Yogamatters, I share how:

‘Burnout’ is defined by the WHO as ‘feelings of energy depletion; or exhaustion; increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativity or cynicism towards one’s job; and reduced professional efficacy’. Whilst being burnt out was indeed originally a term used to describe workplace challenges, it’s important to know that it’s not just your job that can make you feel depleted, exhausted and mentally distanced. In today’s world, our bodies and minds have never been exposed to so many demands, which makes it easier for all of us to feel burnt out, no matter the cause. Parenting, finances, relationships, a busy social schedule, keeping up with deadlines, spending too much time scrolling on social media or endless hours in the gym can all quickly add up to an exhausting case of burnout.’

With so many of us feeling the burn, it’s vital to know how to naturally prevent and remedy issues like this. Even if you’re not burnt out, it’s likely you or someone you know is experiencing stress and anxiety right now, and the tips in this blog can be incredibly useful for that too. You’ll learn what and how to eat for burnout, the adaptogens to use, how to rebalance your nervous system, and the all-important self-care techniques that can help reduce stress and build resiliency. I’d love to know if you’re dealing with chronic stress or burnout – how have you been dealing with it? Leave a comment below if you’d like to share or ask questions.
