LoveReading Expert Review of Burnt Out

Burnout by Selina Barker is an encouraging read for anyone who is at burnout, or close to it, and needs to get their energy back. The comforting companion you need at a tough time.

Burnout is a buzzword of recent years, as technology plays an increasing role in our lives, with 24/7 access to the world. It’s not surprising that it’s hard to switch off at times. In Burnout, author Selina Barker explains ‘how to thrive with a hectic lifestyle’, using practical tools and exercises to guide us. The book is colourful and well-designed, making it a pleasure to read. It begins with a ‘Burnout SOS’ for those of us in need of urgent help because we’re physically and mentally exhausted, already right in the middle of a major burnout, or about to have one. The rest of the book takes a step back (prevention is far better than cure), for those of us not yet at the burnout stage. It explains what can cause burnout, how to get our energy levels back and how to redesign our lives. It’s a book that you could dip in and out of, and refer to again and again. It was fun to read – making me laugh at times – and highly encouraging. The comforting companion you need at a tough time.

Burnt Out Synopsis

People everywhere are burning out.

From CEOs to nurses, to doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs, journalists, social workers, academics, creatives... even yoga teachers are at it.

Technology was supposed to make life easier, free us up, take things off our plates and instead we are feeling more exhausted, more under pressure and more stressed out than ever before. People all over the world are lying awake at night wired from exhaustion and uncertainty, fearful of the looming to-do list that awaits them in the morning and wondering how the hell they are going to keep this up before they lose the plot altogether.

Life doesn't have to be this way.

This book is a no-nonsense, practical guide to thriving in a fast-paced modern world, for the burnt out, bone tired and brain frazzled. It's a toolkit that will help you learn what ingredients you need in order to thrive and how to weave those ingredients into your day-to-day, no matter how busy life gets.

Whether you are a classic overachiever, over giver or over thinker, be prepared to take back your boundaries, replenish your energy and design a life you love.

The six steps to take you from burnout to thriving

STEP 1: Commit to making your happiness and wellbeing a top priority in your life

STEP 2: Get to know your inner Shitty Committee and how it is driving you to burn out

STEP 3: Tune into your inner Wise Cheerleader and turn up the volume

STEP 4: Learn how to become a master at managing your own energy

STEP 5: Design your life so that you can thrive

STEP 6: Bring about big change when the people or environments around you are causing you to burn out
