EP 29 - Is Burnout Affecting Your Motivation to Move?
Burnout – the general feeling of depletion or complete exhaustion is the inevitable result of overextending ourselves. With the global stress that is currently being experienced, many people are finding their bandwidth being consumed by new and increasing roles and responsibilities, alongside a multitude of significant stressors.
In my fitness practice, I’m seeing the effects of burnout on people’s motivation and desire to move. I’m noticing a common theme of women struggling to keep up with all the new pressures and then judging themselves as “bad” because they’ve strayed from their usual exercise or eating habits.
As May is Mental Health awareness month, it’s a perfect time to shine some light on this syndrome of burnout.
I’m joined on this episode by Dr. Kate Hazlitt, ND who shares all about what burnout is, how it shows up in our life and how it’s really a sign of a core belief about yourself.
Dr. Kate highlighted why it’s so important to have compassion and grace for yourself, rather than judging and trying to prove ourselves by “doing all the things”.
