The Burnout Solution: 12 weeks to a calmer you

Rate this book
We live in an era of 'yes, I can'.

We tell ourselves that whatever we want to achieve, if we work hard enough, we can do it.

But sometimes this results in something very different indeed – a severe case of 'no, I really, really can’t'.

Burnout is a state of chronic stress that leads to physical and emotional exhaustion, cynicism, detachment, feelings of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment – many of the same symptoms as depression. Burnout is on the increase as we struggle to juggle the pressures of work and family life with a constant feeling of always being on.

Through her own experience of burnout and her work as a psychotherapist, Siobhán Murray has developed a 12-week plan for overcoming this condition.

The Burnout Solution offers a step-by-step path through feelings of stress and anxiety towards renewed clarity of mind and an ability to prioritise the important things in life. Learn the beauty of saying no, rethink your boundaries, find your 'non-negotiables' and regain your power, passion and sense of purpose.

A helpful book when read at the right time in your life (on the edge of burnout), as it gives you the reminders you probably already know, but need to hear again, to make some changes.

As an audiobook it was an easy listen, but I didn’t benefit from all the exercise questions, however, I’m not sure I’d have done them all anyway. Nothing new here, but informative and useful, like a good friend reminding you to slow down and take time for yourself.

The recognition that burnout is more than a “job thing” and can impact any area of your life was one of the reasons why the book The Burnout Solution: 12 weeks to a calmer you was interesting. As with most burnout books I’ve read, there’s a lot to agree with – and enough to disagree with.

I actually loved it! Short, well-structured, no non-sense. Good examples and great advice throughout the book. Especially, if someone is really burnt-out out the light size, language and concise content of the book is not an additional stressor.

Full of cliches and excessively repetitive with some minor interesting points and insights scattered throughout. Probably would have worked out better as a blog post.
