Episode 50: Avoiding Burnout As A Working Mum


The last year has been intense for working mums.  Even before the pandemic many of us were overwhelmed and exhausted.  But the pandemic has pushed us dangerously close to burnout.

This episode is for you if you know that the last year has taken its toll on your wellbeing and you’re concerned that you might be on the road to burnout

In this episode I share:

  • What is burnout
  • How to recognise signs of it
  • What to do if you’re noticing you’re heading towards, or already in, burnout
