Emotional Wellbeing
Coping Imperfectly: How to Live Well With Workplace Burnout
Coping well with workplace burnout in an increasingly stressful world can be challenging. In fact, encouragement to just exercise more, meditate, eat healthy, and so on can actually increase feelings of burnout rather than the reverse. This seminar will discuss signs and symptoms of workplace burnout and explore the concept of how to cope "imperfectly." We will identify actionable strategies for connecting with valued activities and care tasks with a sense of self-compassion, no matter where your level of functioning is at the time.
