The book Restart - Burnout Recovery gives us a fresh and unique perspective on the burnout phenomenon. It is written solely from the point of view of someone who has suffered through one. And it tells us what a burnout really is: a restart of your life's goals and priorities.
The burnout book breaks with unhelpful paradigms in psychology and treatment methods and leaves us with only those things that truly work in your recovery. Yet it is still written with the help of several top-of-their-field healthcare professionals.
It starts off by simply making an emotional connection and acknowledging just how bad a person can feel when they are burned out. The book signals that it's perfectly fine to feel down in this transformative period and that no one should ever tell you otherwise.
You have to embrace your emotions, including the negative ones. Your recovery will come and you will feel like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon. But for now, it's good to feel bad. Don't rush your healing, burnout happens to the best of us. And we all recover.
Then we start to assemble your Help Team, based on the insight that your recovery should be made highly personal. We discuss the essential differences between signals, triggers, symptoms, causes and solutions.
The next phase is about acceptance and letting go of expectations, a healthy practice for anyone, regardless of burnout. After this, we start to slowly wake up the inner animal again, connecting to emotions and thus reducing our cortisol levels.
We talk about you, me, work, relationships, how society raises our stress levels, what we are inside, when we feel happiness and how to drown out the noise. Trauma, loss, anger, depression, anxiety... we cover it all and look it straight in the face.
And then the book offers you over thirty solutions to go out and experiment with, ultimately dissolves these feelings of burnout and speeding up your recovery.
