Episode 14 – Banishing Burnout

On this week’s episode, Rowan and Chris look for some ways to prevent and manage burnout. Burnout is typically related to work stress, but in this episode, we explore the general theme that burnout is when our demands outstrip our resources. This relates to more than work stress and is particularly relevant to those in caring roles through the COVID-19 pandemic.
