Kiindred: The self-care myth. Why do I still feel burnt out?
Kiindred’s resident Psychologist, Jaimie Bloch speaks on the elements of burnout and exhaustion.
“We often forget that in order to support others emotional, physical and mental needs we need to take care of our own first,” says Jaimie Bloch.
“If you’re constantly trying to support people but you’re not ok, you will run yourself into the ground emotionally and physically. When we are not ok, or when we are burnt out our tolerance is reduced, patience diminished and we are more likely to be reactive, anxious and overall less able to be present, grounded and connected to others.”
