In the October issue of Health, Supportiv’s co-founder Helena Plater-Zyberk shares her lived experience of coming back from burnout, amidst a discussion of how to stop feeling overwhelmed at work.
“I realized I was unhealthy, uninspired, and dangerously drained, and I felt like my work ethic was being exploited,” she shares, citing long hours, unreasonable expectations, and constant stress as factors in her burnout.
The article covers burnout in the workplace, as a result of:
- uncertainty about where you stand at work,
- constant connectedness,
- pressure from deadlines,
- and more,
within the optimistic context of Helena’s experience. After abruptly leaving her unsustainably stressful job, she quickly co-founded Supportiv — which would have been a helpful tool during her own burnout experience!
