This week on Thrive, we are talking with Dr. Amy O’Hana about burnout. According to a new report, more than half of American workers (59%) experience at least moderate levels of burnout. In mainstream medicine, burnout is now recognized as a legitimate medical disorder with its ICD-10 code.
In this episode, we discuss the following:
The definition of burnout
How burnout is different from depression and anxiety, although it may look similar
Why burnout is detrimental
Practical solutions for managing burnout for yourself or loved ones
