Webinar Topic: 8 Ways to Prevent Burnout
Webinar Date: June 11, 2021
Burnout, the chronic feeling of being overworked and overwhelmed, was already a global issue before the pandemic. In this session, Celeste Headlee examines the cult of productivity, addressing long-held assumptions about time use, idleness, hard work and habits that are ultimately doing us harm. She provides tips to reverse the trend that’s making us all sadder, sicker and less productive, and return to a way of life that allows us to thrive.
Join this session to deconstruct ‘productivity’ and learn the eight specific actions you can take right now to feel less stressed and more balanced.
