About Beating Burnout
Burnout is something that many of us accept as par for the course and is something we tolerate in the background of our lives until it becomes unsustainable, but this doesn't have to be the case. In Beating Burnout, we present an interdisciplinary look at burnout in the domain of knowledge work, ranging from personal stories to neuroscientific explorations of the causes of burnout. Episodes present a model of self-awareness, knowledge, and action, where we explore a topic, provide resources for further self-exploration, and invite you to take action and build your anti-burnout toolkit.
Therapy, meditation, nature, nutrition, sleep, blah, blah, blah. All of these lifestyle changes and interventions have a place in supporting our mental health, but sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is nothing at all. Join me as special guest Stephanie Sosa tries to teach me how to chill the f*#$ out. Enjoy!
Have you ever experienced the feeling when we’re out with our friends and all of a sudden you just can’t function anymore and there’s no going back. It’s time to go home, now. Now that we’re re-entering the world, it’s taking a lot less to drain our social batteries and it’s taking a lot longer to recover. But with a few simple tweaks to our thinking and planning, we can anticipate this and find a better balance than we had before. For more detail, listen now.
The term “revenge bedtime procrastination” has recently become popularized as a way to describe what happens when you stay up late for apparently no reason and sabotage your next day. We dive into what your mind is trying to tell you when you do that, how to tackle it in a way beyond just “don’t do it”, and why it’s actually the best intervention point to impact your overall well being. Hope you enjoy it!
It's my pleasure to host Brandon Sammut, the Chief People and Culture Officer at Liveramp, a data connectivity company with over 1,000 individuals. As an employee at Liveramp, I have seen Liveramp implement a number of wellness initiatives before and throughout the pandemic including an app-based therapy offering and home office budgeting. I wanted to get a deeper understanding of how these types of programs are decided on, what insight leadership actually has to the mental wellness of individual employees, and how success in implementing something like a wellness program is measured. Safe to say, I was blown away by the intelligence around emotional well-being, awareness of the struggles of Liverampers, and the level of solutions-oriented insight Brandon was able to provide. If you are a leader looking to understand how to better improve the wellness of your team in a virtual environment or someone curious about the above topics, enjoy us for some truly eye-opening conversation! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

But it is oftentimes just as much related to not having enough of the drivers of positive momentum that keep people engaged and excited about their work. In this episode, we walk through many of the common sources of burnout, walk through an exercise to understand which are most important to you, and how to take these learnings and use them to start the conversation with friends, family, or even your manager about your options for making things better.
