The Burnout Equation—Saturday Self-Care Check-In
Saturday Self-Care Check-in: The Burnout Equation
In my experience, there is a simple-ish equation that creates the condition for burnout:
- Too much work
- Too few resources
- Without gratitude, acknowledgment, or celebration
Yes, there are a huge number of systemic factors, yes. Also: these are three things I’ve identified that are the perfect storm for burnout.
So how do we unwind it? Start by reverse engineering it:
- Cultivate an environment of dignity in your workplace.
- Create community and connection in your work.
- Make gratitude and celebration a regular practice.
