Ep. 16 If you feel at this moment exhausted or anxious about the future or maybe a bit depressed and you want to avoid burnout (or maybe heal from one) then you are at the right place! I have gathered for all my listeners the best tips from my own experience and that of all the guests I interviewed in 2020 for you. The first 5 are: 1. Overrate your sleep, 2.

3. Learn a breathing technique to help you recover and to relax,
4. Engage in physical activity every day and 5. Meditate.
