Episode 87: How To Stop Burnout Before It Starts


We know burnout is on the rise for working mothers. In fact, the data is pretty damning.

Sadly too many women are on the road to burnout or are just a breath away from it. But most of them don’t even realise it.

All too often it takes hitting the brick burnout wall for us to realise. By that time it’s too late.

So how can we actually stop burnout before it starts?

My guest is here to tell us how. As a burnout survivor, Dr Jacqueline Kerr left her position as a public health professor in 2018 after her burnout experience and is now on a mission to dismantle the causes of working mother burnout.

Her TEDx talk provides solutions that we can all use to change the social norms around burnout and I’m delighted that she’s here to share these insights with you.

Her 20-year experience as a behavioural scientist combined with her own personal burnout experience means that Dr Kerr has a powerful perspective on burnout that you’re going to want to hear.
