Music Ed Mentor Podcast #83: The Counterintuitive Approach to Battling Burnout

battling burnout

Friends, I know it’s tough right now. If you’re a regular listener, you know I’m all about self-improvement. We’ve talked about mindfulness, being present, morning routines, and productivity. We’ve talked about affirmations and meditation and what books you should be reading. I hope you know—like all the other resources you’re getting at this time—that you get to pick and choose what you accept, what you believe, and what you decide to implement in your life.

Just as the times are so different right now, we have to flip things on their head and talk about the other side of things. In this episode, we’re going to talk about some counter-intuitive approaches to battling those feelings of anxiety, stress, and burnout that you may be experiencing.

I also want to offer a disclaimer with this episode—the content in this episode is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your mental health professional or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding how you’re feeling.

Now, let’s talk through the counter-intuitive approach to battling burnout.
