Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive (Paperback) by Borysenko Joan Z. Phd
Emotionally exhausted? Discouraged? You may be suffering from burnout a syndrome similar to depression but different in that it's not a disease to be cured. Like depression burnout is a medical emergency because it erodes health and can lead to disability and even death. It is a personal emergency because it destroys relationships love and work. It is a spiritual emergency because the soul's fire has gone out and a profound sense of separation from the Source of Being creates despair. In this breakthrough work Joan Borysenko PhD - a Harvard-trained medical scientist psychologist and renowned pioneer in stress and health - straddles psychology biology and soul in a completely fresh approach to burnout. Joan's deeply human (and often amusing) personal accounts of burnout and recovery; the science of helplessness hopelessness and empowerment; and the rich wisdom of people who have gone from fried to revived - including many of Joan's vibrant community of 5000 Facebook Friends - make this powerful and practical book a must-read for our times.
