Life After Burnout

Join TEDxMileHigh and Umadevi Gopaldass, founder of “The Great Burnout” and the “The Great Workforce” on an adventure to reinvent your job to be fullingfill and productive part of your life.

When work becomes misaligned with your values, it doesn’t matter if you are a CEO or a school teacher, your work ethic and self-motivating factors start to wane off. Add the work overload and the chronic stress and you’ll burnout in no time. If you feel your job has become meaningless and that you are producing bogus output all day for a paycheck, then it is time to get out of the rut.

Statistics don’t lie. At US$1 Trillion annual losses globally from mental health disorders driven by our jobs, World Health Organizations (WHO) is taking it seriously. In May of 2019, WHO included Burn-out in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) as an occupational phenomenon, raising urgency to an epidemic that has been largely ignored as an isolated individual’s failure to manage themselves at work.

Find out how negative work stressors and the growing incidence of work-related mental diseases affect you as an individual and as a larger part of a workforce when you are feeling burnt out at work. Leave here with a plan of action to breakout of burnout.

“Work and life are intertwined to the core of our existence. It is impossible to avoid one from spilling over to the other – work time versus family time, play time versus chores, earnings versus callings. The imbalance of one over the other wreaks havoc in ways beyond our control, also known as a burnout. “
