Considering the rising heat and general atmosphere, this book is particularly pertinent. The Joy of Burnout by Dr. Dina Glouberman delivers just what the title promises; a new outlook that helps usher the reader from depletion and despair into a more honest life pattern. Rather than viewing burnout as a symptom to be treated and forgotten, Glouberman points out what our bodies, minds and emotions are telling us when we feel ‘fried’. As the reader progresses, the symptoms become a map to overall betterment, transforming from annoyances into lessons.
This little book is for anyone who has ever felt like they are running the treadmill of life, for those who find themselves looking for answers in all the usual places, finding the same, unhelpful answers, and even for those just beginning their professional lives. The tone is light, relatable and thought-provoking. I will be reminding myself to refer to this one often.
