Presented by Evan Dumas, MA and Letta Raven
Burnout is real, and it’s not just a symptom of working too much. Adjusting to a new style of working, connecting, and living due to a pandemic is stressful enough. It makes sense that caring for others makes it even harder to care for ourselves, even in the best of times. Letta Raven and Evan Dumas are here to talk you through surviving burnout:
- Setting boundaries in a time when it feels like we can’t do enough
- Setting reasonable expectations for ourselves
- Caring for our past, present, and future selves
- What it looks like to ask for support when we’re only used to giving it
