Feeling burnt out? You're not alone. Now that it’s been a year since the pandemic started, a lot more of us are experiencing it. It’s no surprise: Some of us are working longer hours on top of juggling other responsibilities like being a caregiver or parent. Some of us are frontliners who aren’t able to take breaks. And some of us are burnt out from still being in lockdown and/or away from our usual support system.
Plus, the typical avenue to recover from burnout - taking a vacation overseas - isn’t a viable option at the moment. In this fireside chat, we speak to Dr. Pearlene Ng, who is a Senior Clinical Psychologist at Viriya Community Services about: - How to recognise you’re on the path to burning out - The causes and types of burnout - How to recover and stop it from recurring
