Fried : Why You Burn Out and How to Revive Paperback
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 5,000 Facebook Friends - make this powerful and practical book a must-read for our times.
