Remember when the idea of starting your own business was scary, but also energizing, and maybe even fun? You used to be so productive, so inspired, and now it feels like your whole life is overwhelm, exhaustion, and never feeling like you are enough. Could you be experiencing burnout as a business owner? If so, how did this happen, how can you fix it, and how can you avoid it in the future?
This burnout handbook was created to help business owners and entrepreneurs who are looking to understand, avoid, or recover from burnout in their businesses and private practices. You may think if you are in the mental health or wellness field you are immune, but there are more Google searches for burnout in the health and wellness field specifically than in other fields. You may think if you are young and energetic you are immune, but there are more searches for “millennial burnout” than there are for “physician burnout” each month on Google.
We are going to take a deep dive into the definition of burnout syndrome, the burnout cycle, the risk factors, burnout tests online and offline, and also how this dynamic plays out in your business and the steps you can take for burnout recovery. This is not an exhaustive review of all the research or a scholarly article. It is meant to be accessible. It does link to research so you can dig in more fully should you have the time or energy (and if you are reading this handbook- we understand if you don’t!)
