Burnout is real and lockdown is hard. This LGBTQ+ workshop looks at strategies for coping with exhaustion, healing from stress and building resilience.
What is Burnout?
‘Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. It occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands.’
2020 is over, but we’re still in lockdown and Covid-19 is raging on, and on, and on. This workshop is designed especially for the LGBTQ+ community and will focus on burnout and resilience to it.
During this 90-minute online session, you will learn more about your mind and body and understand the physical and emotional effects of stress and burnout. Together with members of the LGBTQ+ community, you will explore strategies and techniques to support your well being during this difficult time.
