“Grief, Burnout, and Reclaiming Our Lives” with Christina Rasmussen - 177

Have you ever found yourself feeling like everything looks the same on the outside, but everything on the inside of you has changed? If you’ve found yourself checking out of your life in unexplained ways and not able to fully name it, this episode is for you. We talk about the undercover world of grief, burnout, and reclaiming our lives after experiencing the invisible losses that we often overlook and dismiss.  In today’s conversation I get cozy with Christina Rasmussen. Christina is an acclaimed grief educator, author of Second Firsts and Where Did You Go? Which have been extremely helpful books for my own family as we navigate grief and loss. She is also the host of The Dear Life Podcast and founder of The Life Reentry Institute at lifereentry.com.  I recently signed up for her Life Reentry class, which has helped countless people break out of what she coined the “waiting room” of grief to rebuild our lives. She describes grief as a catalyst for redefining identity, and outlines the process of “reentry” where we return to our lives. Her  work has been featured at ABC News, Washington Post, and the White House Blog. You can find more of her brilliant work at christinarasmussen.com and secondfirsts.com. Christina’s mission is to change the way we grieve, the way we live, and how we define our potential in this life, and the hereafter.  What you'll hear (and don't want to miss!): :: The symptoms that can indicate burnout, or not living in alignment  :: The way that she has been able to transform her grief and loss into a movement that is healing so many other people  :: What the safe space of the “waiting room” is all about  :: Christina’s re-entry and the ways that she is now transforming her life (and how you can too after invisible losses)  :: Why she is saying no to money and additional opportunities daily, without feeling guilty about it  :: Christina’s best practices and rituals for writing, plus how she stays connected to the creative process  You can find the full show notes from this episode over at https://jadahsellner.com/grief-burnout-reclaiming-lives-177
