I'm so excited about my guest, Cait Donovan, today! Cait speaks about burnout in an entirely different way, one that is more forgiving and filled with grace.

As you may know, I have already experienced one round of burnout. I had no idea what was happening to me, but I thought it was entirely my fault. I carried the guilt and weight of the question, “How could I let this happen?” Here's the excellent news. From my conversation with Cait, I learned that this might be a bit of our genetics, upbringing, living and work environment, and choices. And if you’ve experienced burnout before, you know how difficult it is to heal. Starting with a dose of self-compassion is a beautiful place to begin.

During my conversation with Cait, we discussed:

1. The origin of burnout and why looking at the last 3-5 years of history before a bout of burnout can share some clues

2. What burnout is and isn’t according to the medical community

3. The symptoms of burnout

4. How repeat burnout is a real thing

5. What you can do to heal from burnout proactively.
