Theme: How to Avoid and Recover From Burnout

In this Episode: Burnout is something more people experience than not, but many people hide it or push through it thinking they can’t let their guard down. But the Bible is clear in that many people go through burn-out, you’re not alone. Elijah wanted to kill himself after a huge victory, King David went through what he called the “valley of shadow of death”, even Jesus himself went through a dark night of the soul at Gethsemane. Burnout is part of greatness, but you have to know how to deal with it.

In this episode of the #trigpodcastofJOY! I go over my own story of BURN-OUT (twice) and share with you Seven Tips to Avoid and Recover from burnout. 

Seven Tips to Avoid and Recover From Burnout are:  

  1. Recognize burnout is a part of greatness
  2. Don’t Pushing Through It
  3. Try a Working Sabbatical
  4. Talk to Your Family, Leaders, Team when appropriate
  5. Seek a Focus Point of JOY – side interests, family, working out, flowers
  6. Seek A Mentor
  7. Go on a Walk with God

So what can be done? I want to encourage you to work through your burnout, don’t ignore it, instead get the support you need and know that God loves you no matter what.

In 2013, I recorded my own CD of original songs, then in 2014 I wrote an e-Book called “How to live an Anxiety Free Summer” and an article called “High Anxiety” for Leadership Online.

But it has not always been easy…

I grew up far from home, dealt with war, fear and anxiety. Was unemployed for a year and at times felt fearful and insecure.

But through grace, love and discovering my God-given adventure I have achieved everything I want in life. Now I’m here to help you achieve GOZO and succeed in life!

So In 2010 I started my own media company called #GOZOtv! with thousands of views online. l love my job and now I get to do what I was created for, now I feel like I’m living on GOZO street! (GOZO btw, means JOY!)
