Creative Women’s next virtual event – the Experts Talk – Online Series – will take place on 22 September at 5pm BST.
Our experts will be talking on the subject of ‘Burnout. Work-life balance’.
If you are overly tired, emotionally spent, and often irritable, you may be experiencing symptoms of Burnout syndrome, recognized by The World Health Organization in 2019.
Burnout involves emotional exhaustion, depletion of energy & efficacy, and feelings of inadequacy at work or in one’s personal life. Three in four people are said to be struggling with Burnout at the moment, due to longer working hours and higher stress levels, in response to the pandemic.
This is exasperated by the fact that a lot of people are still struggling to cope with the work-life balance. Having to juggle working from home and looking after their families all at once. Signs that you are experiencing Burnout include heightened feelings of guilt, irritability, forgetfulness, an inability to find the light or joke in social situations all eventually leading to self-punishment and the worry of being stuck in this vicious cycle.
There are ways to deal with Burnout. Join us at this event and get tips on finding your work-life balance!
