How do you manage daily stresses and could you be suffering from burnout? Dr Adam Staten has edited a couple of books on burnout and we dig into how it affects us in daily life and how we can promote resilience to keep it at bay. We talk about the importance of decision latitude in burnout, physical activity, and mindfulness and digital technologies. We also consider how hobbies can protect us and how essential sleep remains. Listen in and find out how to avoid burnout and thrive at work.

Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe by Roger McNamee
I’ve moved away from most social media but I realise it is still an important part of many people’s lives. If you want to share an episode or more on Twitter, Facebook etc then I’d be thrilled.
Even better, why not mention it to a colleague, friend, or family when you next speak to them. In fact, why not give them a call and meet up anyway? All the evidence suggests you’ll be healthier and benefit. And, if you can and it’s relevant, thanks for mentioning the podcast to them.
