Burnout is the result of occupational stress left unmanaged, marked by high levels of exhaustion and depletion, emotional distance from our job, and cynicism. With the macro and micro stressors of the past two years, it’s no surprise that burnout is on the rise.
Although self-care strategies can be part of burnout treatment, we have to acknowledge where the systems around us are broken.
Podcast guest, Jennifer Moss, is author of The Burnout Epidemic, released in 2021. Moss was on the Global Happiness Council—a small group of leading scientists and economists that support the UN’s sustainable goals related to global well-being and the Annual Global Happiness Policy Report.
