Straight and Curly Ep 47: Dealing with burnout


Carly and I polled the Straight and Curly Facebook group to find out what topic they wanted us to cover in this episode, and ‘dealing with burnout’ won by a country mile. Which is funny because, at time of recording, we were both teetering on the edge of burnout.

So much so, we were too tired to do a heap of research and structure the conversation the way we usually do which means we range far and wide in this ep and cover:

  • How to avoid burnout in the first place
  • The different kinds of burn out (self-inflicted vs that which is out of your control)
  • The difference between burnt out and busy
  • How to remedy burnout once you’ve identified what’s causing it
