“Burnout is what happens when you try to avoid being human for too long.”

Looking around, they see their colleagues and senior executives living and breathing their work, and may come to conclusion that this is how it should be. Then, they take their stress home. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Helping to come back from burnout to fulfilling life
I am a former analyst and auditor at Big 4 companies. I worked in three countries in the corporate world, and observed many clients and colleagues struggling with stress and burnout.
