#straightfromcait: Bad Advice for Burnout (and what to do instead)

Updated: Mar 7

In today's episode, I will talk about the bad advice you can get regarding burnout and how those pieces of advice came to be due to certain misconceptions. I will be emphasizing how burnout is not solely a mental or thought issue but a systemic one involving various aspects of life.

Episode Highlights:

Cait Donovan talks about burnout advice she wrote about two years ago and still agrees with. She talks about how many people perceive burnout as solely a mental or thought-related issue, which affects how they distinguish between burnout prevention and recovery, and that most advice falls into prevention. Cait stresses the importance of life pruning, rebuilding emotional filters, and moving intentionally during recovery.

Cait encourages listeners to trust their inner guidance when choosing which advice to follow.

Remember, trust your inner guidance. In a sea of advice, your intuition knows what resonates with your soul. When choosing which path to follow, listen closely to that inner voice, for it knows the way to your own unique journey of healing and growth.
