Burnout Relief by Lyndey McCurry, LMSW
As a professional in a hospital/clinical setting, I saw firsthand the challenge it has been to cope with the COVID pandemic and the secondary trauma associated with it. In Emily and Amelia Nagoskis’s book Burnout, they discuss how it is necessary to deal with stress before dealing with the stressor. Oftentimes life seems very BIG, as in unmanageable or threatening, but stress can be broken down. When we feel anxious, it can seem overwhelming, but as Emily writes, “Wellness is the freedom to move fluidly through the cycles of being human. Wellness is thus not a state of being, it is a state of action.”
