Cooling the Flames of Burnout with Gabrielle Juliano-Villani

Published on: 18th July, 2022

Caregivers are likely all too familiar with the reality of burnout. In this episode, Gabrielle Juliano-Villani discusses how to pay attention to signs such as feeling as if every day is a bad day, feeling numb or apathetic and living with a sense of isolation (even when you're with others). We discuss the importance of connection and appreciation- and you'll love her metaphor of glass/plastic balls!

You'll hear us discuss:

  • The differences between stress and burnout
  • How to recognize burnout in yourself (we are often the last to notice!)
  • Tools and tips to ease burnout
