Bouncing Back from Career Burnout: A 21 Day Journaling Guide
Burnout is considered a persistent state of emotional or physical exhaustion. Career burnout is when you are emotionally or physically exhausted as a result of your career or job. When you are burnt out from your career, you experience a heightened level of work or time spent doing work, yet it doesn’t result in any increased productivity. In fact, it often results in less productivity, a lower sense of accomplishment, and a loss of personal identity.
When burnout is not addressed early on, it can lead to lasting problems. Just because you have experienced burnout does not mean that there is no hope. In fact, taking the time to process how you are feeling is very important to recovering from burnout. The more you can understand what it was that led you to the point of burnout, the more likely you are to be able to recover from burnout quickly and get back to feeling like yourself again.
One of the best ways to overcome career burnout is to fully understand and process your experience around burnout.

In this journaling challenge, you’ll have two journal prompts each day to guide you through your feelings and thoughts around the situation so that you can fully process your emotions and experience around career burnout.
