One of the biggest challenges people face in their adult life is burnout. When you’re burned out, you become less effective and nonfunctional in many aspects of your life. You begin to lose interest in the things you normally love doing. 

Not many of us recognize this as burnout. Many will brush it off as feeling tired or getting exhausted from doing too much too fast. What we don’t realize is we are already burned out and we don’t take action to get out of it because we mistake it for something else.  

In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty talks about the early signs of burnout to watch for and how to help yourself recover exhaustion and fatigue.
