30: A Recipe for Burnout - and How You Can Avoid It

While many of us are currently staying home and being forced to slow down, it isn’t going to last forever. Learning how to avoid the “go-go-go” in our daily lives is vital to avoid burnout. We’re conditioned to think that more is better, but sometimes it comes at the expense of our health.

Today, Robin Long shares how we can prevent reaching this place of burnout and jeopardizing our health and goals. There is an array of simple and achievable habits we can practice in our day-to-day lives in order to build strength and reduce stress without burning ourselves out. Join Robin in this conversation to learn more about how you can optimize your wellness, increase productivity, and avoid burnout. 

Show Highlights: 

  • Self-quarantine has provided an opportunity for life to shift and change our rhythm 
  • What does it mean to have a “go-go-go lifestyle” and how can we slow down 
  • Having a go-go-go lifestyle can have mental and physical consequences 
  • Learning to listen to our bodies can help avoid burnout 
  • There are many ways we can learn to tune into our bodies and honor our needs 
  • There are various different aspects to health and fitness outside of diet and exercise that impact our well-being. Paying attention to those factors (sleep, environment, stress levels, etc.) can help prevent burnout. 
  • More is not always better. Sometimes what we’re conditioned to believe is “better” isn’t always what’s best for our bodies 
  • Pilates is a great low-impact alternative to high-intensity workouts
