S6 Ep116: Ep #116: finding peace in your work with burnout prevention expert Anish Hallan
This week on the show, tech high-flyer turned burnout specialist Anish Hallan shares how to recognise and avoid burnout. Burnout's often associated with office workers and CEO's - but pursuing a passion project can leave us just as vulnerable to damaging our health through over work. Because getting to do what you've always wanted and are most interested in - and not having to answer to a boss, feels like a dream. But can turn into a nightmare of never-ending tasks and self-imposed pressure if we're not mindful of our own work-life balance. Anish and I chat about his experiences of burnout and, creating healthy boundaries (that actually create longevity) making the connection between healthy work-life and a healthy mind and body how we define success in our work I mention Josephine Brook's episode of #JustBloodyPostIt for anyone who's particularly interested in burnout, click here to catch up.

This week, the story of an online subscription product that really, really works: London Writers Salon.
